The weight side doesn't bother me, once you can handle the flex then you can use it to your benefit. It also doesn't need as much maintenance and I've found that the clamps don't need tightening up, as much. The SLX clamps always seem to come undone and then the pole spins.

That is strange as the clamps and clamp mechanism is exactly the same on both poles 😕

 

Usually clients find that the SLX will outlast the CLX due to the harder carbon as opposed to the softer fibreglass.

SLX are rock solid. I think it's a common misconception that they need to be mollycoddled.

I've had mine ages.

I bought a new clamp for it 6 years ago

I've had 3 CLX poles and very rarely tighten the clamps. My only SLX clamps, especially the first section, has to be tightened daily, sometimes more often. You also don't have to clean it as often and don't get black finger with the CLX.
