This is the strongest boat hook I have ever seen and exceeds those that I have let go with other boats that I have sold. It is very strong when fully extended. Recently I used it fully extended to reach a swimmer in trouble and it was rigid as needed.

Have used boat hooks for 50 years and the ONLY reliabe form is solid construction. This is most unwieldly to store, therefore I keep purchasing these collapsible forms, and after a while the friction between cylinders becomes faulty and it then is only good for pulling the boat toward something. Pushing is useless, or dangerous as the pole will collapse. Will recommend with conditions.

        Comments about West Marine Floating & Telescoping Shorty Boat Hook:

        I was grabbing the line for the second time after I bought this pole and it bent and broke. Little force was used as I have a small 18 foot boat. I wouldn't recommend this item.
