Carbon fiber laminates can withstand more load cycles and are lighter than aluminum, the material most commonly used for outrigger poles. A patent-pending swivel roller mechanism lets live baits or artificial lures have a more natural swimming action. $699 (10-foot Center Rigger Single) to $1,999 (20-foot Outrigger Pair). Taco Marine, Miami, (305) 652-8566.
