Hi all. I have an old hotstick that was handed down to me, so I have no idea how old it is. It keeps slipping, so it is kind of useless right now. Is this just a normal part of their aging and there is nothing I can do about it? Or does someone out there someone out there know of a way to repair them?

Extend it all the way out. The inner core has a high point (ridge) that as twisted interacts with the inside of the outer part. Paint the ridge with some resin to build it up slightly. Can make it new again!
