Bought a year or so ago and only use it a couple times a year. Yellow tip on hook fell of right away. Unlike other reviews I have no trouble locking it, my problem has always been unlocking it. Just the bottom section gets locked and the only way to loosen it is with two pipe wrenches. Top section works fine. Once its extended and locked there no way to stow it - so its in the way.

Will be replacing it will a different brand.

Only good thing is it didn't corrode - it is left out all season on my boat.

    With most poles, the extension locking mechanism gets stuck and is difficult to deal with. So far I have had no issues. It seems to be made well and is holding up nicely.

                  It's been a real life saver during many of my docking "antics". I'll rely on it until my dockings are more gentle. Until then, it's great having an 8-foot long extension to my arm.
