Black gas pipe or galvanized pipe works the best :)

I use a piece of 1x4 aluminium rectangulat tube, 12 feet long across the screed poles. Nice and straight after sitting in the rain.

Use the black steel gas pipes w/ 1" od, just as the others said. DO NOT use pvc conduit as it will bend and flex. We use magnesium screed boards. They are light, straight as an arrow and very consistant.
