I really enjoy poling when on the flats but I must admit that it has been difficult for me master this art form. I don't have the balance or skill needed to pole a skiff from the platform. Poling my kayak is fun but because I really can't get the push pole directly behind me I expend a lot of energy lifting the pole from one side of the W to the other. So I came up with the idea of removing the spike from the end and adding another foot. This will allow me to pole from more or less center of any craft. I can now use the pole much like a paddle. I will expend a great deal less energy and be able to maintain my balance.
Removing the spike an adding the new foot was relatively easy. Stiffy prints very clear directions on the replacement foot package.
