wood replacement handles for rake or shovel work fine
but you can also go with PVC pipe aswell
as long as you dont mind the flex, or plan on having a large heavy spear head

as far as tapplastics goes, very little of what they sell will do for a handle
(it will be to brittle)
but depending on the head shape, you could use acrylic sheet
instashape, or a couple other products

but its much cheaper to check the hardware stores before buying online
(shipping makes projects non cost effecient)

as for a guide on materials, give this a look, it dont have everything
but gives a general overview for commonly used products
protip* when using wikia, click image to bring up slideshow, click image name top left,
and select size options (if available) till you find one of appropiate size

disclaimer* im not an expert, i simply add in my "2 cents" having a second opinion is always a safe bet
