That was another reason I went for it. I already have poles that I use with my Noah, but I sometimes wish I had an extra set to increase the usable space and air flow. Since the Nemo comes with poles it just seemed like a really sweet deal. I can use oars as well, but I probably use it just as much or more for car camping, so two sets of poles is ideal.
Also as a point to note, I've not had any issues with my Noah, although I haven't really put it to task much in high winds. I got it for a very good deal as well, but always planned on keeping an eye out for something bigger. The Nemo seemed to fit the bill.

Even if the poles turn out to seem wimpy then perhaps just use oars and use the OEM poles on the sides. I do this sometimes just to raise the tarp as high as possible when it is blazing hot and the tarp fabric is hot enough to become an oven. As much clearance as possible is preferred. (I many times have broadcast water on the tarp to chill it out. Perhaps the best use of a water blaster toy there is. It is good for almost an hour of evaporative cooling.)
My original Moss Outfitter Wing is made out of the heavy durable fabric. Unfortunately, when it gets saturated wet is takes a long time to dry unlike the silicon(?) fabric of my new NRS wing. Maybe the fabric was more water repellent when it was new.
