Several of the earlier postings talked about making go-bars from driveway markers or kite rods.  While these ideas work and save money, there is a decided advantage in the more expensive go-bars from Stewart MacDonald.  StewMac's bars are rectangular instead of round and therefore you know where the bend will occur and can place the rod so that any side thrust is along the centerline of a brace so the rod won't push the brace out of alignment.  This feature saves a lot of frustration when you've already got wet glue to contend with.
