[FS Syd] Tarptent Protrail UL Tent

Tarptent Protrail for sale (cost new $400 AUD + delivery)
https://www.tarptent.com/product/protrail/
Comes with rear pole and 4 normal Easton Nails, 1 long Easton Nail.
Had about 50 nights use but still heaps of life left. The tarp, bathtub floor and mesh are all in excellent condition. Seam sealed and sealer smeared not dotted on floor for extra grip.

Only issues are:
A hole near where the trekking pole goes, when stupid set it up wrongly one night. Used since in bad wheather and didn't leak but you may want to patch.
Internal foot mesh screen is broken but easily fixed, been like that for ages and does not affect the tent in any way.

Love this tent but selling because I just updated to the Li version.

Price $240 (includes delivery within Australia)

Luckily hole is on the outside of the seam so not an issue re leaking

Useless IMHO but designed to keep condensation off the end of bag

Just wondering, never having used a trekking pole tent and not being a trekking pole user, is there any reason why one could not use any handy stick instead to hold up the tent? With a suitable cap placed on the end so as not to damage the tarp of course.

Been there with this tent. A stick would work but at the time, I tied off on a tree branch. Folly Point in the Budawangs so you can improvise but a single trekking pole is best

I have the pole set for my Protrail.
Front pole is 1163mm overall including the nipple and I measure 12mm diameter.

So one could make a pole from spare tent poles or perhaps fibreglass ones.

Yup. I have the same tent, and for bikepacking I made up poles - heaps of options - Alu or carbon, cheap or expensive. One thing though, DO NOT believe Six Moon Designs when they say their poles (carbon at least) are suitable for tents like this - wayyyy too flexible. I think they were less than 9mm diameter. I only mention this because they're available in Oz. I have a 11 or 12 mm Alu and a 10mm carbon, both do fine.

I like this tent so much I just sold my WE Space 1 due to lack of use.
