For that price, I'd just buy it, and borrow poles from a larger dome tent to mock it up and get a good length figure for a set of permanent poles.

Once you have your length figure, there are multiple routes you can go.

You can somewhere like quest and get a custom set made:

 Or go the more inexpensive route and watch ebay for a set of used poles you can shorten to your length.

It looks to be a smallish tent so a used pole set shouldn't be too hard to find which is longer than you need, to shorten to your length. Epay has used poles floating around all the time, usually for not too much.

Also, you might check with Cigar Mike once you have your length and see if any of the pole sets he has are long enough.

How long are your sampler poles, and how much too short. I have a set I can measure if you have a guess as to how long. How do they attach at the bottom? It looks like you’ll need 3 poles. Are you Ed and Alana’s son from PA? If you are you’ll know me as Beasty.

ISO 6-56, 7-88, and 2-91.  Found a 1-91, it may be as close as I get.
Thank you to all servicemen and servicewomen, past and present.

5$ is hard to beat. Maybe you can use fiberglass fish sticks used for pulling wire? @Ridge Runner what do you think? They could be cut down and they are very flexible. Slide them through the pockets of the tent and mark a length.. The only thing is you wont be able to break them down like standard tent poles.. Just a thought.

Hi Elton. These are the Klein fiberglass fish sticks we use for certain wire pulling applications. They are 1/4" in diameter and six feet in length which, like Ken mentioned, might be a bit awkward to pack/store. But, they screw together and multiple sections can be assembled to make any length you want.

The ends would likely have to be cut/modified to make the connection to the bottom of your tent.

We purchase the fish sticks from our local electrical supplier, but it looks like Home Depot or other online retailers sell them as well. Good luck with your search!
