    Have a lot of 4 story apartment houses around where I live and cant see doing them with my 25 feet Renegade alu pole (which is absolutely fantastic value for money when you just start with wfp) .

    So decided to invest in a 35 feet pole to get more work in as it looks that nobody cleaned those windows for years..

    So what pole to go for? Gardiner or Phoenix?

    Yes I checked. And the price match Gardiners SLX now. If not it is even more expensive and I was just wondering is it so much better or just overpriced.

    The gardiners clamps are what make the difference imo
    You don't get the problem of spinning sections due to wear as they adjust with a twist of a **** and have shims in them
    A lot better than the old clamps
