Strong Mast

"Non rust which is great and even at full extension with a large aerial and strong winds very little flexing."

Does the job...

"I wouldn't expect this to hold up to serious storm force winds, especially with a larger aerial on the top, but for what I used it for (28 element log periodic) it was just fine."

Adequate not great
18-May-2009
By
, Notts
"Does the job but not anything special, a bit flimsy with a 48 element aerial but does the job - beware that this is actually a 1.8m rod though! Had better for similar money, but it works."

Useful for Something else

"It bent under a 48 element aerial in high winds.The hassle of changing is significant ; buy a heavier one to start with."

1.8m Aerial pole
28-Dec-2013
By
, Bedford
"Don't waste your money on this rubbish. 25mm diameter is far too small. The aerial swayed around in the slightest breeze and the pole eventually bend in high wind.
Have researched, the required is 1.25" and preferably 1.5" - 2" for this length.
Had to do the job twice by buying better product (unfortunately not sold by Screwfix)."

Not fit for purpose...
16-Dec-2013
By
, London
"Very thin walled aluminium tube that flexes alarmingly with the slightest bit of wind. Lasted 2 weeks before the Autumn winds bent it to a horizontal position. Stupidly did not replace it, and the now shortened remains collapsed again last week. Totally not fit for purpose - unless you enjoy climbing up ladders repeatedly."

Useless

"Totally unsuitable for outside use. Wobbles like crazy even in moderate wind. Would undoubtedly shear in a high one. Will replace as soon as I get a more substantial replacement."

Don't waste your money or time
03-Sep-2013
By
, Dunfermline
"This mast is not fit for purpose, do not waste your time fitting it. Giving it 1 star across the board as there is no option for 0 stars. Mast was flexing in the slightest wind and I have no doubt would have buckled in the first gale. Not helped by the Labgear TV Aerial Wall Fixing Kit which was flimsy and also not up to the job; it could be flexed with the minimum of hand force. Took both components back to the Dunfermline store where the staff were very helpful – no quibble in getting a refund. Buy something more substantial!"

"Very flimsy. Wobbled about in slightest wind with a 48 element aerial and finally snapped after less than a year of being fitted. Made from lightweight material and not really up to the job in my opinion :-("

Lasted 6 months
30-Dec-2011
By
, Wetherby
"Just come back from holiday to find no TV reception! Checked everything inside then headed out to check the aerial and found it flat on the roof. Fitted using this pole about 6 months ago and have been concerned that it seemed to wobble a lot. Might be OK for internal use, but would not recommend for outdoor use as it seems too flimsy."

Don't Buy
25-May-2011
By
, Edinburgh
"Fooled into thinking Labgear was OK quality. Do not waste your money AND time fitting this pole. Flimsy and bends and breaks in moderate wind. Refitted 3 times each time using what's left so getting shorter each time. Even changed D clamps to other side but has now gone for a 4th time. And new aerail damaged now."
