Used mine for the first time after picking it up at the big one show. Mega bit of kit. Poles slide out and lock with no problems and then easily break back down again.

something you may not have known about click and collect is the maximum size and weight of parcel, this is from ebays site:
Your item must weigh less than 15kg. No one side of the parcel can exceed 90cm with max dimensions of 0.324 cubic metres (including packaging).. Any items that are too large or exceed the weight limit will be rejected on arrival at the eBay collection point and may be disposed of, without reimbursement

From what i can gather it is the seller that is responsible for checking this, i sold some rods on ebay and the buyer chose click and collect even though i hadn't knowingly made it an option it must be an ebay default setting that i have since changed in my settings, anyway i was lucky the argos it went to accepted the parcel.

It was only when i looked into it i found out about the size and weight restrictions but of course i had already posted the rods, but its likely the seller you used didn't know they had offered click and collect as it is something they have to de-select.

I had no problems with Corus, they delivered my pole to my address within days. Pick up the phone and give them a ring if you havenít already - emails and messages isnít the way to go.

Bit of advice anyone thinking of buying a corus pole off Ebay avoid told 2 days it would be at argos to collect. Nearly 2 weeks later not here. Then told argos wont accept anything as high as that. Told they would post to my address still nothing and dont reply to Ebay messages. So if you want a pole your better of going to a tackle shop.

Yes as Dan said, £179.99, the 18m telescopic will be I'm told. I did put that earlier somewhere mate.

12m CFX telescopic £109.99. Length packed 153 cm. Weight 1.75kg. This one is out now.

18m CFX telescopic £179.99. 192 cm packed length, weight 2.4kg. This one will be out soon, couple of weeks I think it is. March.

6m front extension kit, for any baiting pole, is a prototype, currently in production, with no price yet. It's light. That will not be out until the summer. I am stealing one though. Like, very soon indeed.

That's very true, didn't think of it like that. Could still sell an all in one slightly cheaper than buying each bit seperately and have everything there to buy seperately for those that need replacements/upgrades

That would be fine for you, as a first time pole buyer James. What about people like Neil though, who already have a pole, float, and spoon? All of the anglers replacing take apart baiting poles, for a telescopic one? They do not need another float and spoon. So selling them a kit, would be ripping them off a bit. You can just buy the float and spoon, separately mate.

The Gardner ones are wicked, that's what I use. The Cygnet ones are good to I'm told.

Am I reading this right? You buy the pole for X amount and then still have to buy the float and spoon to go with it.

Surely it would have made a better buy if they did it as a kit

Sounds perfect for me as an avid stalker, being able to move in and out of spots quickly without having to lay all the lengths of pole out on the ground then gather them up again when you move to the next spot 👍👍

Yes mate. You can buy the 12m telescopic CFX which I have, today. The 18m telescopic CFX baiting pole will be in the Tackle Box, and online in March. The CFX front extension kit, that will be available early Summer.

The front extension kit, there is only one in existence in the UK currently. But they are being 'sorted' right now.

You're going to love it Neil. It makes a tiresome operation, very easy really. If you imagine, as the pole comes out, one small twist on each section locks it. You can do it rapidly once you have the hang of it. And get it back in rapid to. No faffing about putting it all away.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I've used a baiting pole for the last 7 years to great effect .I've lost count how many extra fish the pole has caught me. A telescopic version would indeed make things a lot less effort, can't believe it's not been done before. 👍

This means nothing at all to me. But for any of you interested, The Tackle Box, will have all of the products mentioned, including the front extension kit, at the Big One show. Wherever that is. Find Gary Peet (old looking bloke, looks a bit like prince Phillip). He will show you what you want to see. If you go in the Box itself, ask for Gary, and demand to see the front extension kit prototype. Tell him Mark said to call him 'pest controller' to.

My recommendation, would be to get a 12m telescopic pole, and wait for the 6m front extension kit. The 12m is more transportable, and lighter for general use. The front extension kit is there to extend to 18m soon. The 18m pole is immense, but I'll be sticking with a 12m, and the front extension. It suits me better.

I can use a proper boat everywhere I fish anyway. But for getting into out of the way places on the 'sneak', the pole cannot be beaten.

I have a top of the range, eye retina mac, apparently it can do some truly incredible things... I would not know, I'm thick as far as things like that go. I use it for CF, betting, and youtube music videos in the main

I'm just the bearer of great news, in the form of carp catching kit. I'm not selling you a thing, I will not earn a single penny if you buy a pole. My mate is soooo old, and soooo rich, he does not even know that this is being wrote. He don't look at the internet. They sell a million things in that shop, I tell him straight, most are not worthy of mention (I say crap really). The CFX telescopic baiting poles, are very worthy. They are absolutely top class. A problem solved. Mine, is a treasured bit of kit already.

Go on, you know you really want one, it's telescopic, with a big extension to come.

Yeah, but four years, is a long old time in terms of that sort of tech mate. I'm so useless about stuff like that, it is unreal. I have a Technicat, for dead baits. I'm about to start playing around with a different prototype BB though, in a fishing sense. I have no technical sense, just fishing sense. I don't really use a BB either much, I use a big boat. I'm no expert on BB's, but I bet that some of you are.

The thing is 10m is nowhere near long enough and by the time youíve taken a bit off that to bodge on a thread itís not up to the job. Iíve got the 18m Corus pole, itís funny how short 18m seems when actually fishing.

Of course you could 'knock' one up from anything. The 12m is £110. So £40 on a 12m glass fibre flag pole, then you have to 'bodge' some sort of fitting, or tape a spoon on. No thanks, not for me.

I'd rather spend £110 on a state of the art 12m carbon fibre pole, that's actually purpose designed for the job myself. But each to their own. Carbon fibre costs money, but it has the necessary stiffness. And is capable of holding the end thread to screw the spoon on. It's about weight. A glass fibre, thick enough to give the stiffness, would weigh an absolute ton. Trying to manoeuvre a very bendy pole, at 12m, with a spoon full of bait, with a bit of wind on the water... No thanks. Not for me.

I know some lads have previously posted about knocking something up from conduit and it served the purpose.
So if super bendy conduit can do the job then i have to wonder why it needs to be carbon fibre and nearly £200...

A 10m telescopic fibregass pole is about £30.

Sorry I've had a shocking cold. Flag poles are made of glass, and are so bendy. They also have no thread. So you'll have to 'bodge' something. If baiting poles could be made out of cheaper glass fibre, they would be. You'll waste £40.

Price of the 18m is not fixed yet, but will likely be £179.99 I was told.

The extensions that anyone has now.... Are the back extensions. Big separate extensions for the TB baiting pole. That kit has been on sale for a while. The extension kit I am referring to, has never been seen yet. It is a front extension kit, and fits any pole on the market. Slim stiff carbon poles, that create an extra 6m in carbon at the front. With a very ingenious design. They are brilliance itself.

The 18m CFX telescopic baiting pole is in the shop very soon. The front extensions will be available early summer. Personally, I want the front extensions myself to go with my 12m. The front extension can live in the car, until needed.

Thanks for the heads up Mark, just what I need for this year. I've had an 8 and a 12M pole that are take apart that are a bit of a pain on a canal, but a 16M telescopic will be a godsend.

Was originally looking at the 12m version recently as i prefer the idea of a telescopic one, but I might just wait for the newer version to arrive in March and see how much it costs.

I used a telescopic match pole for years with a scoop taped around the top. It was perfect to be honest, stealthy, quick and easy to use.

http://www.tacklebox.co.uk/baiting-up/tb-cf-x-12m-baiting-pole-mk2.html

One of the biggest problems, with the very excellent baiting poles, has always been the silly over fit joints. Having so many pole sections on the floor, leads to them being trod on and broken, or grit getting into the sections. I could never get on with them. The problem has been sorted. A 12m baiting pole, which is telescopic. All incapsulated. No taking the damn thing apart, or putting it together.

These baiting poles were all originally built, on match fishing pole technology, to produce a rigid pole. For carp fishing, we do not need such a rigid pole... It slides across the water with a float and spoon on the end. So a telescopic one, is SOOOO much better in reality for us.

A little snippet for you, there is currently a prototype 18m baiting pole, which will be in the shop some time soon in March. Also a 6m CFX baiting pole extension kit (this is absolute genius), that will also fit onto any 12m baiting pole on the market, including the one in the link, very obviously. The extension will be out early Summer, no chance to be copied very quickly. They are a very impressive bit of kit... And so much more practical, and easy to use than all of the others with over fit, take apart sections.

12m packed length is 153cm.

18m packed length will be 192cm.
