Using a pole extender with a MLD Duomid. on 11/30/2013 13:19:51 MST Print View

When using a pole extender is it best to have the pole handle on the ground with the extender on the top or vice versa?

Thanks,

I always go handle up, so the the pressure on the mid is more dispersed.

Snow and mud require a rock, a chunk of bark, or similar, to keep it from sinking.

Thanks Greg,

I had my Trailstar pitched on deep snow earlier this year and pole down send to work but I did stomp out a platform using snowshoes.
