I will get sone pictures up on Friday. Don’t expect them to be the same quality as grippa because you will be disappointed, however they do cost a fair bit less. The clamps are essentially larger stainless steel version of a bike saddle quick release clamp.

That clamp will break the pole
I have grippa full carbon and the cleaning systems version

The grippa ones are amazing and I’ll be replacing the cleaning systems ones with more grippa once they will do me a deal on 60ft

Well having used them several times, I can confirm they don’t break the pole. Obviously they aren’t in the same league as the grippatank poles, but neither is the price.

Not everyone has the budget to go all out straight away on the best possible gear, this works well, as does the fork actually!

Please don’t see that as a dig I was giving an opinion.
That clamp could easily crack
A pole and over tighten

There is a metal sleeve at the opposite end of the pole which slides into the joining piece so essentially that piece shown in the picture is supported inside by an aluminium sleeve from the pole it attaches to. The clamps are not fixed, they slide off when not needed or if nipped up slightly will stay at the end of each pole. It’s simple but it works.

I would still expect it to crush the carbon over time , surely it’s easier to just fit a wfp type clamp on it .

these look fine to me the good thing about poles with no plastic clamp or fixed  alli  is if u snap a section its a £20 fix for me as i have a friend who fixes carbon fishing pole sections :1f44d: they can be anaped or crushed and my m8 just brings them back to normal again he can also add extra carbon on areas if needed

Apparently carbon fibre dust when it's cut is more dangerous than asbestos! Heard that when I was working in the fire service. No many people know that.

I can vouch for it being bloody sharp

If you have the carbon fibre poles like mine from gardiner which just push into each other no clamps, an old fishing trick is to use brown parcel tape on the male end of the pole section but dont ever overlap the tape tho. this prevents the section wearing and stops it from coming lose and is easy to take apart.

Good point, I think if the dust gets in your lungs then long term damage will happen. I believe we should all wear trutouch gloves and fling them away at end of day.
