I want to cut my Swix CT1 (composite) poles down from 50" to about 46" and I was wondering if anyone has any good advice on how to get the grips off? It is pretty damn hard. Or would it be a better bet to just take off the tip/basket (both are removable) and not bother with the grip?
Also shoud I be worried at all about the fact that they are carbon fiber/composite? Like will they splinter or not cut cleanly without the proper tools?
