Has anyone ever cut down a carbon pole.
Yes its easy, just wear gloves as you will get splinters

Did my modified gutter pole in my chop saw.
It's 2.4m at its shortest. I'm sick to death with struggling with it. When I bought it I didn't have all you guys to ask advice . As you do sometimes, I learnt the hard way.
I just made sure it would fit in the car, didn't think about how awkward and clumsy it would be.
You have ladders on the roof of your car? Lie your pole on them and hold it down with a bungie cord when driving between jobs. That's what I used to do.
I'll give it a go.
You can also remove sections that you don't use very often so you end up with a smaller lite pole. The sections you don't use when needed can be just put back on. That's one of the main reasons why I have my pole hoses running on the outside of my poles.
You could also make a diy tube pole holder made up of drain pipe if you wanted to stick your poles in too.
