Interesting to note in @Alex Gardiner guide is

 

3. Additionally, a spray of dry-film PTFE spray over the overlap area will improve the life of the pole. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED LUBRICANTS SUCH AS WD-40 or GT-85

Why not Alex?

 

1. It is not recommended by carbon fibre tube manufacturers as it can possibly lead to de-lamination of the matrix material from the carbon fibres.

 

2. It can create a sticky film which will attract more dirt to the surface of the tube sections.

 

3. It can interfere with the clamping efficiency.

 

Dry-Film PTFE spray has none of these issues.

What brand would you recommend Alex?

 

Does not really matter which brand although we have found that the WD40 brand dry-film PTFE spray is not very good and does not dry well. If you look around there are several different brands available.

 

If you do not want to have to search for it we do sell it - Dry-Film PTFE spray - http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/ptfe-spray-400-ml.html

So if I advertised a clear plastic bottle with a clear liquid in it labelled "falling down water" would you drink it @Tuffers without smelling it first.

 

a. could be poison

b. could be gin or vodka etc

c. could be plan old water

 

 

Interesting to note in marketing terms the first two are ok but the last one is in breach of trading standards as you wont fall down at all drinking it. :D
