    I've just bought a new fibreglass pole and have been using it for a couple of days, and started to notice splinter feelings in my hands, and if I touch my face I get an itchy feeling.
    Has anyone else had problems with fibreglass poles?

    You can get those Unger water fed pole gloves, excelant! I won some a while back, but think they RRp for around £30.

    They don't keep your hands warm though they made to protect your hands from pole and give more grip to the pole to.
