10m Expedition (70cms [short] telescopic pole)
Brand new replacement – only for those customers that have had an accident.
Heck, I’ve broken a few myself in the early days. I know!

This is effectively a “no profit” *new* replacement for any engineering which you might have tried – and it failed. From stressing too much on inverted L, guying it too tightly, standing on the pole, trying to lift an elephant with the pole. I don’t care. If you broke it in an honest manner, have another one.
QUESTION: Why don’t I stock spare sections and supply these indivually instead?
a) From time to time, the factory re-make the tooling and therefore from batch-to-batch, the sections can come out a few thousands of an inch out (less than 1mm) different. You might think it won’t matter BUT the difference can either mean the new section I supply you will come straight out the end of the pole – or might not extend to full-reach!
b) If you factor in shipping costs – and warehouse / management costs of stocking lots of single sections, by the time I have supplied you with just one spare piece, we wouldn’t be far off the price of the “cost-price” of a replacement anyway.
I therefore took the view a while ago that since I’ve already had a sale off you, I might as well just send you another pole and cover my costs – and you keep the old pole for mucking about with or creating something weird, interesting or another experiment. And of course, you now have spare sections for future proofing your second pole!
PS – Please get your warranty replacement number from me before purchasing.
