      bad start?

      i have had a bad week mate, never mind a bad start. match on sunday(3rd of season), trod on a top 3 before the off. set up another and trod on that one too! monday pleasure session, fell in! dragged my box and bait tray in too.(footplate got caught in back of sock). lost my wallet in lake somewhere. broke no 4 section also. phoned tackle shop for a replacement section, pole now discontinued, cant get a section! and you thought you had a bad day?

        Devilfisher thats what i call a bad spell have you left the house today? What pole have you broke maybe one of the lads may have the same pole or even a spare section, failing that send it to one of the recognised repairers it will cost about £30 and be as strong as new

          got a shakespere president glx pole. acording to a tackle dealer, this pole is now discontinued. they phoned shakespere and they said that a section from a rubicon will fit? its the number 4 section. its strange because the section snapped with a clean break and not splintered like normal. do you think that there could have been a fault line in the section? either way, do you think that i should send it back to shakespere so they can take a look? maybe they will send me one free of charge? paying £20 for the new rubicon section so not too bad as long as it fits right.

            Its not uncommon for them to snap cleanly especially in the case of a sudden downwards force, as the carbon is spirally wrapped it will create a shear point a bit like scoring glass. Breakages whilst playing a fish usually give rise to it splintering, I also believe that the carbon fibre also deteriorates over a period of time and becomes a bit more brittle will give rise to it snapping or cracking, At £20 for a replacement section it is probably not cost effective to have your section professionally repaired unless you live close to any repairers and can deliver it yourself.
