    As title. Im 56 and getting bothered with sore fingers and one keeps locking. Just wondered if its a common problem or is it age related?

    Cheers,
    Steve

    My main problem is ingrained shite in my fingers :confused:, I tried using latex gloves but they kept getting stuck between the sections on the pole, bloody annoying it was.

    Mee hands are constantly a mess, dry, nicks & small cuts......they are basically sand paper hands. They don't lock though - that's still to come.

    My knees started playing up - it doesn't like kneeling anymore:(

    Yes I get that sometimes too mainly when griping small diameter poles for long periods of time. When working with larger 50 mm guttervac poles I don’t get cramp in my fingers at all. Therefore it must be something to do with the hand/fingers muscles natural grip width.

    I have the same problem but its when I use my bigger diamt SLX40. My fingers go into cramp. Once I don't need to use the SLX40 anymore, I put it away and take out my SLX22 and finish the job off with that.

    Why don't someone produce an ultralite carbon pole with a kevlar outer skin then. No more black hand and might be bullet proof too :D

    I had an operation last year to release a trigger finger.
