  • split on female end of section?

    As title says i have a about 5mm split on the female end of my number 6. Do i get it repaired or wait to see if it gets worse? I dont know what to do as ive never had this problem before. Its on a maver elite 88 pole so its not cheap if you know what i mean? Also how would this be repaired?

    Mazy simple fix would be to cut the offending 5mm off. To ensure you cut it square wind some tape around the section just above the split.( I use masking tape ) Then using the tape as a guide slowly saw the split bit off, a rub off fine wet and dry sand paper will remove and slight roughness and stop splinters. You could also have a carbon wrap done that would cost about a tenner. Leaving the split as it is runs the risk of it lengthening when putting or taking the pole apart.

      Sorry misread post before I edited, if it's only 5mm just sand it off.
