Squid Poles don’t last forever.

Squid Poles don’t last forever.

23032014 – Broken now

After fixing as described below, I managed to damage a inner section.  Believe a ‘foreign’ object got in and when it collopised shaved it. I have not found anything but defiantly shaved.

Final straw, time for a new one. Will be using compact pole until replaced.


23022014 – I have worn out another 7m heavy duty squid pole. This one was just over 12 months old.


Have allready glued the bottom in. Add tape to protect it but still wears out.Kept the bottom piece so can re-glue. 


Use fishing swivels to hole the wire. Note the groove worn into the top.

Re-glued the bottom in and taped up. Ready for another go !


Note use of a chair foot for the top. Unfornatually can’t use for the bottom.
