Spinnaker Pole - Bag or paint

Recommended Posts

We unfortunately need to get a new pole after loosing our old one in yesterday's Gold Cup race. 

Why do people put their spinnaker poles in bags when not in use? 

Is this for sun protection in lieu of painting a carbon fibre pole? 

The pole we lost was made by C-Tech and came painted gloss white. The painting made up 1/3rd of the purchase price, so I was considering getting this one unpainted to save some coin.  Or am I missing the fact that a new pole would require some kind of finish anyway?
