As anyone used a different make topkit on a top of range pole,after reading the browning page on Facebook they have fetched a topkit adaptor out to fit their no4s so any topkit fits their poles,main end 22mm tapering to 18mm,if you have purchased a browning pole from such a date they give you an adaptor free.I emailed browning about it,they told me to email the place of purchase so I did within 2 days I received one.But my only concern is would a different topkit from a top of range pole throw the pole out at long lengths?

Then you can't sell your old pole or pass it on without top kits.

Top kits are made for the relevant pole unless you buy cheap universals. Why would you want to put a spurious part on your high performance pole. If you own a cheap pole then fair enough, but I wouldn't personally.

I think the map and sensas kits fit already. The sensas match kits are a decent quality and those map shalla kits fit and they are about 40 and 6ft long so would be ideal for most commies, they do seem to be out of stock in most places though .

That would give you 47 tops kits all with NG green

With the adaptor in place and A.N.Other make/size/length/weight of kit it will make a very different pole
