The clamps on the stream line poles are absolute dog shite. By far the worst clamps I have ever used. 

 

They are that bad they are really not useable as they are either too slack or too loose.

 

I bought 2 second hand for a bargain price and managed to improve the clamps using gardiner shims.

 

Avoid these poles unless you plan on a clamp change 

 

Other than that are quite stiff but that's because they are a thicker wall diameter and thus heavy.

 

Stick with Gardiner's still the best poles on the market despite all the other options nowadays.

I think they tried copying gardeners lateral clamps. If your going for a streamline I’ve used the v2’a before and they are a good pole.

Big mistake.

 

The clamps are useless, I should have posted a video. They are either too tight or too slack plus you have to forceably pull the pole actions apart and close them. They are not smooth at all due to the clamps.

 

I only bought them for a backup pole for each van and paid £90 for two of them at that price I can live with it but if I had bought new I would send them back.

 

The actual poles are heavy but stiff and if you could swap the clamps would be decent enough.

 

Will be interesting to see what yours are like

 

EDIT: I'm talking about the xr70 as per title. I'm guessing you have bought something different as they don't do 50ft versions ?

Yup they’re xr70 

one is 48 reach and one 57 reach, I’m guessing.

Back home tomorrow so I’ll have a play then.
