    hi ugys i think ive decided on purchasing a skyvac atom with the discount at wcw at moment and wondering though do the 38mm bore hose or carbon poles get blocked much for those who use them?
    i did fancy something with the 51mm bore but they tend to be more for the bigger vacs than can give more suction?

    Cheers mate I ended up ordering a set up from gutter cleaning systems with 50mm carbon poles, hopefully that will be spot on!

    Everything will be that much heavier than the 38mm poles and hose!

    Can't see it making a massive difference pal plus these poles from gutter cleaning systems are full carbon not part carbon like a lot of others inc skyvac so hopefully that will offset difference.

    To be fair (they're competition so I shouldn't be!!) they may not have realised themselves. To my knowledge they buy their poles from China and they use a different cloth which is quicker for them to make, we looked at China but decided to make our own Carbon poles to guarantee 100% carbon (and it's cheaper!). We had a Skyvac pole in about a year ago and we discovered they were part fibreglass then.
