A while back someone posted some information about a cheap ‘roach pole’, from Aldi… well I’ve got one. It’s the “Activator” 8m “Take Apart Vitrofibre Carp Margin” @ £19.99.
I was wondering if this was the same one mentioned earlier (can’t find the post). Also I’m a bit confused by the expression Take Apart. I assumed it would have some sort of ferrule, so it could be broken down into sections whereas in actual fact it’s telescopic.
There’s no problem with it. I can remove the top section through the butt, and the remaining sections look rigid enough to hold up an 80m wire dipole - which is what I want it for.
Just curious to find out if this is 'as advertised; a while back!
