    need a cheap backup pole that has a minimum reach of 36ft as most of my work is above 30ft :)

    I currently use a smax40 as an everyday pole but i was thinking today if something ever goes wrong with it i wont have a backup pole

    I used to have a smlx25 but i sold it cos it was pretty short for most jobs for me :(

    i came across this: I heard brodex are ****... but as a backup pole u cant go wrong surely ? its 36ft but it will do the job for me i guess :)

    as a cheap heavy pole it will be fine I still cant believe you use a smax 40 as a everyday pole and you sold your slx25 I would have thought the the slx25 would do 99 % of your work H ou do some very strange things H

    Needless to say will be a lot heaver than an smax or the slx you sold but for the price will do the same job.

    Doh! I did say keep hold of that slx pole but you would not listen H as I'm sure you could have got an extention for it if needed :rolleyes:

    yeah i sold the slx to buy a backpack

    plus the slx was no good anyway was to short in length... no point having a good pole their as backup :p

    i just want a **** backup pole that i may use for 1,2 days if my smax40 ever needs something fixing on it :)

    aslong as it overs 25ft am happy :)
