Telescoping Mast Products

Announcing Max-Gain Systems, Inc.'s line of heavy duty (1/8 inch thick wall on all tubes ... not the thin walled "glorified fishing poles" sold by some) ... fiberglass push-up masts!

Max-Gain System's fiberglass telescopic masts provide the perfect platform to raise a multitude of different types of antenna to the required height. They are commonly used for mobile, temporary or even semi permanent deployment of equipment.

We currently offer eleven versions of our mast kits, from our 50 foot (maximum extended length) model MK-8-HD, to our "most popular" (and our staff's favorite) model MK-6-HD, to our 10.6 foot model MK-2-Standard. Between these models, we offer a wide range of sizes and combinations ideal for a great many uses! These packages each contain the fiberglass tubes (MK-8 series has 8 foot long tubes, MK-6 series has 6 foot long tubes, MK-4 series has 4 foot long tubes, and MK-2 series has 2 foot long tubes) plus all sizes of our Quik-Clamps needed for your model, at a package discount price. (Guy rings and guy rope sold separately.) We also offer our 8 and 4 foot lengths of fiberglass tube "by-the-piece", and sell our Quik-Clamps individually, so you can create your own custom mast, perfect for your particular use!

We offer two options on material for the special screws used in our Quik-Clamps with your choice of material supplied at same cost. Note that the stainless screws are "standard equipment", and are supplied with your clamps unless you state a preference for the non-metallic, glass-filled adjustment screws as a no-cost option.  CLICK HERE to see discussion of advantages of each material.

Custom Mast Configurations and Replacement Parts

Depending on the height and load bearing capability you are trying to achieve, you can order this system "by the piece." (Fiberglass is sold "by the piece" in 8ft. or 4 foot lengths only) Here is a link to our fiberglass individual piece pricing page:  http://www.mgs4u.com/fiberglass-tube-rod.htm  

For example:

If you needed 22ft. with high load bearing capability you could order the 2.5" tube, 2.25" tube, 2" tube and the 2 corresponding "Quik-Clamps", the stock numbers MC-2.5 and MC-2.25,  to achieve the desired height.

If you needed a 22ft., light, highly portable system to hold up light things, you could use the 1 1/4" tube, 1" tube, 3/4" tube, and the 2 corresponding "Quik-Clamps" , the models MC-1.25 and the MC-1.  This selection would allow some flexibility at the top while being light and easily movable.

PLEASE NOTE:  Our “Quik-Clamp” stock numbers are based on the LARGER of the two associated tube sizes.   For example, if you want the clamp that sits on a 1” OD tube and accepts a 3/4” OD tube internally, order the MC-1 size. If you want the clamp that sits on the 1.25” OD tube and accepts internally the 1” OD tube size, order the MC-1.25 size.

Guy Rings

We now have custom made guy rings, manufactured specifically for our mast systems! These guy rings are machined from mineral-filled acrylic, a material which is non-metallic, non inductive, non-conductive, impervious to UV, and very strong. We have seven sizes available, each made to fit perfectly over our fiberglass tubes of the same size. They will not scar the fiberglass surface. They slip freely on the fiberglass tubes, and rest on top of the "Quik-Clamp" below. (For example, the 3/4 inch size fits on our 3/4 inch OD tube, and will rest on top of our MC-1 Quik-Clamp, which is installed at the top end of the 1 inch OD tube.) Each guy ring has 5 drilled and counter-sunk holes for your guy rope, allowing you to select either 3 point OR 4 point guying ! The counter-sunk holes will not cut guy ropes with sharp edges. Smaller two sizes accept guy rope diameter of 3/16 inch maximum. Larger four sizes accept guy rope diameter of ¼ inch maximum. Colors vary. (Our selection.)

  Accessories and Mounts

Our fiberglass masts are an extremely popular and still expanding new product line, and we have frequently been asked for bases and mounts of various types. While we do not offer these accessories, as hardware is not a line of our expertise, they are becoming available from a number of other companies who are familiar with our mast lines, and are tailoring products which can be used with many of our masts in temporary or portable applications.

MFJ / Hy-Gain, of Starkville, MS has several tripod mounts that may be applicable to your needs, the latest of which is a large model which can accommodate the 2.5” OD tube of the base section of our “HD” masts. NOTE: Guying may still be required, depending on the mast model, height, and antenna load.    The latest, largest MFJ tripod is the model MFJ-1921, which is available from  Ham World, Inc. in Talladega, Alabama http://www.hamworldinc.com/   Pricing is in the $170.00 range. Several options are available for this tripod.  (Ask the staff there for suggestions for accessories you might need, such as the anchor foot braces, MFJ part number MFJ-1905.)

Another possible source for mounts (and even  custom metal mounts) Penninger Radio. Penninger Radio should be able to supply most anything you might require. They do beautiful, quality work in our opinion. Visit their website at: http://www.penningerradio.com    Be sure to mention the Max-Gain Systems mast type you are getting so that they suggest appropriate accessories.

This company sells a mount that may be of use to our RV enthusiast customers. http://www.flagpolebuddy.com/       See how, here: http://www.mgs4u.com/additional-push-up-mast-photo-2.htm

If you prefer to make your own, many customers have fabricated nicely made bases themselves. The best we have seen is by Ray Jurgens, KQ6RH, a retired NASA scientist and antenna designer, and proprietor of the " Antenna Magic " page. Click HERE for a photo and instructional page by Ray Jurgens showing the mast base made from readily available materials ( Assembly Instructions For 8' Quadra Pod Base ).


Shipping

There are 3 steps when calculating shipping.

Step 1

Determine your shipping zone. Refer to the chart on the following page: http://www.mgs4u.com/upsinfo.htm

Step 2

For 8 foot and 6 foot goods, once you have your shipping zone, refer to the chart below for the shipping cost to your zone (for anywhere from one piece to 70 pounds of goods). The only other charge is a flat $2.00 per order flat-rate packing charge.

Zone Zone 2 Zone 3 Zone 4 Zone 5 Zone 6 Zone 7 Zone 8
Price $23.10 $28.05 $31.35 $36.75 $43.95 $51.15 $59.80

For goods below 58 inches shipping costs are determined by the total weight of the goods. You can estimate your shipping cost on the FedEx Website using "30068" in the "From" zip code section, your zip code in the "To" zip code section, and estimating the shipping weight of your package (Figure that the box and packaging weighs 3 pounds.)

Step 3

For 8 foot and 6 foot goods, you will need the full lengths to be shipped, which can be transported by normal carriers such as FedEx. (This length does not require the far more expensive motor-freight shipping that longer goods would.) While FedEx does transport 8 foot and 6 foot long goods, they are considered "oversize" and have additional handling and shipping charges added because of the "dimensional weight". Figure that you can ship a single 8 foot or 6 foot good, or up to 70 pounds of goods in the same box for that same oversize shipping cost. (Figure that the box and packaging weighs 3 pounds.) With this in mind, many people combine orders with friends or family, and everyone splits the shipping cost for a SUPER deal!

Note: Note: The 2 foot and 4 foot goods are not considered "oversize" when shipping. The shipping costs for the 2 foot and 4 foot goods are determined by total weight (The weight of the goods plus 3 pounds for the box and packing). The 2 foot and 4 foot goods can be ordered along with the 8 foot and 6 foot goods to achieve the most yield of the 70 pound maximum weight when ordering oversized goods.
