The patented process FiberTex & Supply Inc. uses to hand make the Stiffy line of push poles ensures they are extremely strong, yet light enough to use during a full day of poling through the skinniest backwaters and channels. The Stiffy line is proudly handmade in America with only the best 100% composite materials we can find. Our poles are super lightweight, coming in at only ounces per foot.
They are so long-lasting that some of our customers have been using the same push pole for over 15 years.

Who Needs A Stiffy Brand Push Pole?
STIFFY produces the lightest and strongest push poles available.
Whether you fish fresh or salt water you need a STIFFY brand push pole on your boat. Noise scares fish. Poling is a quiet, effective way to position your boat in the shallow water where big fish can be found. Saltwater fishermen have been using them for years now propelling themselves stealthily across the flats stalking fish. Bass fishermen are learning to use push poles chasing spawning bass over shallow beds.
It is no secret that spring time bass fishing revolves around the spawn. Female bass on spawn are aggressive and protective. However, even the most aggressive bass is weary of the not-so-stealthy trolling motor. By quietly entering within casting range of spawning bass, a fisherman will increase his catch rate.
In addition to stalking fish on the flats a push pole can be used to propel the boat when the big motor and trolling motor cannot be used. In heavy cover or up shallow grab your push pole and get on out of there. You can also use your pole to stake out the boat for quick convenient anchoring. Just push your pole into the mud and run a tag line from the foot of the pole to a cleat on your boat. You are now anchored in place.
The design team at FiberTex & Supply spent 4 years developing our exclusive 2 piece connector. With the new connector it is now possible to have a multi-piece pole stored in your rod locker. Just pull it out and screw the pieces together for a solid one piece pole. Learn More Below or Start Shopping…
Stiffy Brand Push Pole Buying Guide:
HOW TO CHOOSE A STIFFY PUSH POLE
Once you have decided to purchase a push pole the next order of business is to consider what length of pole best suits your needs. There are several things you need to think about beforehand.
Where will you be poling from, the deck or from a tower? If you are poling from a tower, then we recommend a minimum length of 18 foot up to a 21-foot pole. If you are poling from the deck, then a 12-foot or a 14-foot pole will be long enough.
How deep is the water where you will be poling? Consider the bottom conditions carefully because a pole will sink further in Louisiana mud than in Florida coral. A softer bottom will require a little longer push pole.
Consider how much time you plan to spend poling. You will want a lighter and longer pole if you are planning on doing a lot of poling. Shorter poles are fine for casual use (staking out, drift control, or poling for short periods of time), but they are impractical for hours of poling.
More length lets you “walk the pole” (hand over hand), a few times before picking the pole up and repositioning it. This means less noise as well as less work for you.
Remember, store the pole’s foot toward the bow (front) and spike toward the stern (back). This way if the pole happens to slip back during travel the foot will catch on the bow mounting bracket.
