    Pity the handles are so good as it is a ropey badly finished product really
    Nothing better on a trad pole though

    Sorry guys, heading into summer over here and all hell is breaking loose. The disc he uses is universal to all his products and as far as I know the only model he includes the stoppers with is the Pivot Control. No biggie anyway, I always found them a waste of time. I haven't got any of mine with them in any longer. Regards the 45 degree cut. Early ones didn't, Wagga recommended the cut so the next couple of batches had them and I see on his site now that they are square again and he is now mounting the handle underneath...why? I posed this question and the answer was "to distinguish it from the other models" huh?. I personally haven't used the Precision Glide but to get it working well you will probably have to 'tweak' it a little. Just eyeballing your photos...make sure the pad ends are trimmed just inside the ends of the rubber. This will ensure that you don't get a soap line as you fan. The other thing you can also do is if you don't get on with the small 'slip pad' you can remove it, turn the clips up the other way (fin at top) and attach a flipper pad...Hope that helps, have fun...
