    But if one section is so worn, tightening the clamp up so much will mean you can't close the clamp on the unworn section of the pole? I've got an SLX where the top inch of section 1 is really worn, I just clamped it an inch lower. You could saw the worn part off I suppose.

    EDIT: just read tench's post and his problem is the other end of the pole. Why has it worn in the red part I wonder?

    Hi Tench

    When did you buy this SLX?

    Could you email me some photos of the wear along with the clamp when closed on the worn part and the non-worn part. This will help me see if the shims would help with this.

    It may be best to clamp just above the red from now on, if this is the only worn area. You can adjust the point of maximum extension by sliding the section out of the clamp below, adding a wrap of joint stop tape on the worn part and sliding the section back in. This will now stop the section from extending the worn part out and will allow you to stop and clamp in a new place.
