  • pole repair

    Hi could anyone tell me how hard it is to repair a pole which been snapped in half. I have been looking on ebay and there are repair kits for certain sizes of poles depending on what section has been broken for about 3 pounds are they any good. What does it include in the pack many thanks John.

    Depends how good yer pole is! If its a top range one have a pro repair,if its a cheap un have a go yerself! I prefer to telescope where possible and put a thin wrap around the join!

            thanks for the replies all, the section is no 4 and the pole is a maver testomy I know its an old pole but its still in good nick bar the section whats broken. ive had this pole for a few years and it has done me well i have another newer pole but when i go fishing i tend to use the maver may be its just habit. ive been on the site like cjsid said and 1 or 2 other sites and it looks pretty easy to repair a pole with a bit of time and patience ideally i would like to get another section if poss many thanks John

              It will cost you £25-30 for a repair kit, then if you make a pigs ear of it the section will be no good. Is it worth the risk when a pro repair is only £15-20 ??

                your probably right cartersdad but how do you become a pro.there is people round about not shops, just every day workers, doing it well but they dont let on how they do it cant really see it being that hard only a matter of gluing and wrapping, the pole aint worth much only to me me.might try it on an old sections first and see how I go on

                  Takum, it is not that difficult if you take your time and follow the instructions that can be found on Carbon Mods web site.
                  The most important part is the alignment of the broken sections, and its essential to check the alignment in all directions, or you will end up with a banana. Ensure you use sufficient epoxy resin and make sure the wrap is tight, to eliminate any voids. Apply a thin coat of the epoxy after you have rubbed the repair down, makes for a tidier looking job.

                      It looks to me that they are the Pole Doctor kits intended to build up the male sections, or at best give some stability to a crack on the female end. They would not be suitable for a sheared break, as its no more than a shrink tube. Take a look at this site and view the video, although i see you have to order from one of their sister companies.
