Just wondering if anyone knows if the new tks 3g poles are direct spares for the 2g poles.

Went to the bigoneshow today and forgot to ask the guys there.

I have a 501 2g with a repaired number 4, im looking to get a new number 4 and keep the repaired one as a spare but its been a while and cant find a 2g spare, only the new 3g models.

I belive the mandrels are the same for the new models, but would be nice to have some reassurance before shelling out £100 for the section.

I was in a similar position a few months back with my 601 2g. New no.4 is a 3g and fits perfectly. Only difference is different colour alignment arrows and presumably a bit lighter. Saving for a no.3 now so I will have a spare top 3/4.

I got spare section for my 601 2g about a month ago from fishing spares(Billy Clarke's).2g spares are available but will be replaced with 3g when stocks run out.just ordered a no3 for my M2 margin from map,thought I would have to get a M20 one but they still have M2 spares as well.
