I'm wondering if anyone knows (or could measure) the outside diameter of the Buddipole mast.  I'm thinking about buying the tripod to use with some military surplus aluminum masts I bought which are 1.785".  Not sure if they will fit in the Buddipole tripod or not.

Does anyone have one they can measure?  I sent an email off to Buddipole a week ago but haven't heard anything.  I want to get my mast up.

I just measured it, it is only 1 and 1/8 inches OD at the base so it looks like you are out of
luck.

P.S. What is the inside diameter of the surplus military mast. Could you put a 1 1/8 in pipe into the
Buddipole mast and then slide your aluminum mast over the top ?
