    I own a graphite Snooker cue but think graphite would be far too heavy for a pole.

    Maybe it was Kevlar?

    I believe Kevlar is also heavy weight to size ratio Jake.

    They also aren't 30+ft long
    That's why you buy carbon fishing poles

    A lot of people call carbon and graphite the same thing, graphite is made from carbon but they are not exactly the same. I reckon you are reffering to carbon poles
