    Well after much eagerly awaited anticipation have to say big thumbs down from me, ok no pole spin because of pole wear but it's been replaced by "clamp lever spin" problems, when you raise or collapse the pole the levers rotate then when you tighten clamp poles spin, vertical clamps will never be beaten.

    Sorry to hear that they have not lived up to your anticipation. Is this a clamp upgrade or on a new pole?

    This usually occurs if the clamp bolts have not been tightened up enough. To adjust them correctly tighten them so that they just hold the section below tightly. Then adjust the bolt up by a full turn (360°) and another half a turn (180°). This keeps the lever sets in correct position and prevent them from spinning around.

    It's an upgrade, well I may be undertightening them then, I normally just secure them so it just holds.
