  • My pole is scratching WHY?

    Hi,

    I only have bought a low price pole from my local tackle shop for about 40 quid... its a Leeda 2xl carp attack pole... i fished with it today but when i put this bit (last section) on which has the name of the pole on it etc and some colour i.e blue or summin (pole case) it seemed to be scrathcing the pole case so i didnt fish at full length as i wanted to can you help me please, is the case even meant to fit on casue it was scratching...

    Gadz. The pole case you mention is the butt of the pole and allows you to use the pole at it's optimum length.Try running a cloth through the butt by pulling it through on a stout piece of string in case there's some manufacturing spoil inside.Some "scratching " will occur on any of the sections when they are joined but it's important to wipe off any dirt. I automatically wipe the male joints of my pole on my fishing trousers every time I'm assembling the pole.You should endeavour to keep the sections clean to prolong their life. There is inevitably some wear and you will find black micro dust(carbon) on your hands/fishing trousers if you follow my advice.Tight lines mate!!

      gadz check you have'nt got any dirt or grit down the inside if so run some water down it before putting the other section into it .make sure its clean or the scratching will continue.

            No but the thing is i didnt have a clue on how to put one together as i have never used a pole and the last section was pushed over the butt not inside the butt but when i pushed it inside the but it didnt look stable at all, but maybe i am doing something very wrong...write back

                  Most modern poles are put over. If the rest of your pole is , so is the section which fits onto your butt.

                      Gadz I mentioned pulling a piece of cloth through to wipe out any debree with your new pole - that would apply to any sections with grit inside - running water through was another good idea given to you . Your butt should fit inside the next section snugly - doesn't it!!?

                        you said most modern poles fit over... should the last section fit inside the butt?

                          Some of the cheaper poles will be put in as opposed to put over on the last section, it makes that last section a bit smaller in diameter.
