    Tent pole repair?

    Anyone know who does this?

    Broke a pole in my Terra Nova Solar Competition and can't get a replacement (out of production). It went through the fabric too, which is a bugger but I can patch it ok.

    In the mean time I've ordered one of these:

    Are they alloy poles @Tahr? A lot of tents come with an alloy sleeve to fix poles. They just slip over the pole.
    Good price on the MSR.

    Yes, there is a plastic repair sleeve (alloy poles) but it doesn't look very robust. The elastic thread is broken too.

    Ok. I'm sure I've seen replacement alloy sections somewhere. Will see if I can find them.

    Will depend on size I guess but that's a start. 3mm bungy cord is easy enough to get too.

    Try Dwights in Upper Hutt when you are next up this way.

    I've replaced sections at either Kathmandu or Macpac before, might be worth a shot in case you can find something that is a close enough match.

    Good tents, but they aren't serviced here so wouldn't buy another one.

    Looks like Twineedle is the best shot. Lots off good suggestions here so thanks everyone.

    These guys repair poles & I think they're based in Wellington.
