Makro racer telescopic shaft???

Post by the rainbows end » Tue Apr 23, 2019 7:48 pm

I am thinking of upgrading to a makro racer but have read somewhere there is no adjustable telescopic shaft.
My Garrett Euroace has one and I was just wondering if any Makro 6ft 2" users have a problem with this.

Many thanks.

I have a Macro Racer 2 and that has a telescopic shaft and I am sure its the same set up on the Racer...Incidently, I am a shade over 6' and I find the Racer 2 plenty long enough on full extension but I suppose its comes down to what you are used to from your previous machine...

Your best bet is to find somewhere that stocks both models and see if they will send you a pic with them side by side at full extension....
