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.

years ago I had a mate that gave me a superb telescopic pole very strong and very light !
I said where did you get this from he laughed and said work we use em
when you look up in the air and see a pair of trainers hanging on a telephone line we use these to get em off

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.
