Very impressed with these up to now. They all fitted snuggly, except for the smallest one which I fixed with some tape, as the instructions.
Used the pole for the first time with these fitted yesterday, only top four sections so not an exhaustive test. The only downside, was as I was packing away, the two cones on the number 4 and 5 sections were very loose.
I can only put this down to the lower temperature (evening), as when I checked them at home today they seemed fine. Maybe I need to use some tape on these just to make sure they don’t come out in winter?
These cones are a very good fit, and definitely protect the sections far better than others makes I have tried that don’t cover the male joint and leave a step that can easily catch on the female sections.
