A ferrule ( The metal connector between fibre glass poles ) affects the overall length of the pole.
If you do not take account of how far the pole sits inside the ferrule it will make a difference, particularly on the 3 pole wand I was working on. A repair had already been done on this set of poles – and therein lied the problem.
After cutting a new pole to the correct size & filing down the edges it was time to rethread the poles. As these poles were 7.9mm (thin !) the usual piece of wire was not going to wash it – out comes the trusty needle & thread – worked that one out a while ago. Thread the needle – drop in down the pole & pull through the elastic 🙂
Inv 2828 – 7.9mm 90cm section fibre glass poles.
Job done 🙂
Till next time,
