what do others use/do to keep poles sliding in and out easily.Not sure if talcum powder good idea. Clean them after each beach trip but still get hard to adjust after sitting between trips.

I reckon nothing beats a wipe over with a lanolin based spray lubricant.

Don't leave too much excess on them just a light coating.

After a trip, the poles and pegs have a going over.

Lanolin on the poles, light coat to the pole and a spray to the threads on the adjustment bolts.
Gearbox oil or penetrol on the pegs.

Respray the pegs with high visibility green or red on the heads every now and then. The long poles and pegs get red (so you can see the long poles in the tube holder), the short pegs get green. Easier to see the pegs when you are packing up, and don't trip over them so easily when camped.

Silicone spray is best for poles and steel pegs - quick and easy too. Zips need a dry lube like graphite powder as it doesn't attract dust/dirt and keeps the runner sliding smoothly.
