  • Pole bush

    I am about to re elastic my pole, what size bushes do you need to go with elastic. is there a safe diameter that the bush should be bigger than the elastic to allow it to pull through?

    Cheers

    There is nothing set in stone. There are no figures or measurements to adhere to. I would not try squeeze too thick a diameter elastic through a small diameter bush. Under tension elastic stretches and gets thinner which is not a problem. I have had well worn elastic mainly hollows take on water and swell which caused sticking on retraction....at least I think that's what happened. Never happened with solid elastic. Just be sensible about it.

      Thanks Team Rattler, I will see what sizes of elastic I have now and hopefully the new stuff will be ok.
