bluefin- just done a search, you should find an answer in here : http://www.tackleund...h&fromMainBar=1
I live in Australia and most of our poppers are a lot smaller than you probably want - For larger poppers, broom handle/dowel and a lathe seem to be the way to go there.
Hope this helps. Pete

You can get all sizes of dowels 7/8" and 3/4" are theones I use most
Up to 1 1/2 " if you want.
I get them at the home centers , they are mostly poplar so make shure you seal good.

If you want to make some magnum poppers, get some 1 3/8" fir clothes pole. You'll need a good surf rod to cast them, but they'll Plaster of Paris enough to attract Jaws.
