Ordered the SLX 18 with extension with most popular brush. Could have go the lightest brush and Xtreme and knocked off 300grams, but decided to go for this due to their reputation as well as lightness. Need to go light because of injured shoulder. If I don't take out of packaging can return and will see physio Thursday (£75) who will tell me what the problem is and if I can carry on Got 30 metres of mini bore (the 8mm stuff), was told the 8mm has faster flow rate than 6mm, is this true? Went for only 30metres without a reel just see how it goes, can wind such a short amount up with arms and throw in back of car!
