We decided if they can sell them why can't we? Well this year we decided to try another new design and started making the frame from PVC, same design and concept, just a change in material.
At first I thought they might be too light and blow around, but they are actually a little heavier and a little more compact. I actually like them better than the wood ones due to the fact that they will not absorb water, and are tougher overall.
They fold flat just like the wood ones and the pole balances just as well.
