    My arms were wrecked yesterday after doing a PVC job with the pole.. They ain't so light when they are stretched right out! I have a clx27 and would like to get a lighter pole, maybe clx 18 for daily use..

    I remember my first full day working trad and it felt like a workout in the gym.

    You'll get used to it.

    A harris pole aint light when compared to an slx or other carbon. It'll weigh a ton after a day's use. Go for lightest you can afford.

    Just take a section off, I'm sure you can buy a bung for most sections



    Gav, even though a Harris isn't very light I say go for it, because 1, they are cheap 2, being alloy they'll be practically indestructible and thus usefull in situations like when the other pole breaks. Also think heavier poles can be better for 1st cleans, get more scrubbing power, but that's just my opinion
