In 6 years at my house, two clothesprops have met their demise. The first was wooden and was struck by lightning. The last was an oversize stick with a notch cut in it that survived until the neighbor's kids broke it!
The photo of the retractable clothes line has been replaced, but if I were you, I'd consider one of those. You don't seem to have good luck with the wooden sticks! I bought my clothes line on line I think from Amazon.
