Just bought a AB Biller 3 piece fiberglass pole spear and I noticed that once assembled it is a little crooked. This is mostly on the last piece. I would guess that the last piece is about 1/8 out of true. How much of a difference is this going to make at 6 feet? If it is going to make a difference what is the best way to fix it? I was thinking of using a washer that is thinned on one side to shim it or just trying to bend it back.


If your pole is bent it will be about as useful as a chocolate teapot. Seriously you will find it very difficult to hit anything even at 6ft. Take it back to where you got it and ask to change it for one that is OK.
are you sure it's not cross threaded?
