    Hi.. Anyone use Gardiner Poles looking to upgrade from a fibre glass one. In short looking for a reasonable carbon pole for normal two story houses any ideas out there or what do you prefer to use?

    Cheers...

    I got a gardiners slx22 recently and it's an absolute brilliant pole.. There is a few triple windows it reaches, but will be fine for all 2 storey! Light, and great control and will speed you up.. You will really see the difference
