Custom Ski Poles

Hi all,

I have had the same poles for years and years and don't really see the point in spending money on a new pair, they work just fine and fit well. However, I would love to paint them a different color to cover all the scuffs and scratches they have accumulated over the years. Does anyone have any advice on painting ski poles? Spray paint, etc.?

Thanks!

If you sand the paint so it won't flake off, just use a metal specific spray paint and a lacquer on top of that and you should be good to go.

Yes, just give them a little buff (light sand) back & one spray can should be plenty, if you want to jazz them up a little, mask off with some masking tape, & use an auto spray can that has a bit of fleck (the glitter stuff) in the colour.

You just might have the hottest set of poles on the hill once your done !
