Hi Keith,

Try using some stiff wire ie from a coat hanger and push it from the top end. If that doesn't work here's one that will:

Get a section of hose-pipe attached to a tap, put it over the top of the section and try and seal it around the pole using tape or a cable tie, then turn the tap on.
All being well the water pressure will push the bung out


Its also a good way of cleaning the inside of pole sections.

Regards, Dave

I'd suggest soaking a towel in hot water and putting it on the area of the bung after 5/10 mins try pushing something stiff in the hole (careful Stu!!! not meant like that) If the carbon/ glass fibre has expanded enough the bung should come out quite freely.

HI KEITH
when you get the bung out and fit the new one
dont forget to put some line on the end of the bung with a loop
tied at the end then its just a case of hooking the loop
and pulling the bung out hope this helps
