REI Half Dome 2+ tent pole broken

So the top-middle metal pole on my half-dome tent snapped last weekend.  REI doesn't provide replacement parts so does anyone know of a 3rd party part that might fit?  The tolerance between the metal and plastic part seems to make it almost a disposable tent when one of these parts breaks.  Not the tent's fault I didn't fully engage the pole into the plastic part so the metal to metal connection wasn't fully seated and a wind storm stressed the metal to beyond the braking point.
