    GT 85 gets a mention for applying to pole.

    I've got a Gardiner extreme, and I wanted to know if it's ok to apply GT85 to the carbon pole?

    Any downside to applying this stuff over time to the carbon?

    Seems to make a lot of sense to keep the sections lubed for ease of use.

    Thoughts on this would be good, before I go ahead.

    Cheers.

    Will be fine.

    Use it on mine. Used it on my extreme for 1.5 years.

    Do you apply it daily or weekly Damo?

    If its an oil based spray, I remember Alex gardiner saying not to use them, you should only use a dry PTFE spray.

    I applied monthly.

    I do use dry film ptfe spray now as found it works far better and less greasy.

    I would not recommend GT85 as it is an oil based wet lubricant which can affect the carbon.

    Dry-film PTFE lubricant is best for carbon fibre poles.
