The difference of the Platinum Fiberglass Windsock Pole is that the top section is thin and allows the pole more flexibility.
The Jackite Fiberglass poles are telescoping like an antenna. You extend the fiberglass sections out and twist the sections together to the desired length. For a shorter length pole, do not extend all the pole’s sections. All thin tip fiberglass poles collapse to 48 inches.
Jackite guarantees all its products for 90 days. But with the Jackite Fiberglass poles if you break a section of this pole you can replace the broken section for a small fee plus freight online, at the parts for poles page.
