    Welcome - Waspak


    Thinking of getting one to help my tendonitis of my shoulder?

    (I meant my shoulders not back).

    Is it worth it?

    I am only part time, but wanting to expand.

    The waspak is a very good product.
    it looks a bit silly but for commercial cleaning it is really a good product
    it helps lifting your pole so you need about 50% of your energy in your arms,
    but for residential it is not that good.
    it will lift your pole to much so you need more force to pull your pole down.
    works best with poles over 3000 grams

    I tried it out when I went to the Amsterdam show I agree it does make you look a bit silly but it works excellent it makes a very heavy pole weigh next to nothing I would say great for high commercials if you want to try it out pop to my show as I know they are turning up

    So a waste of time for on an SLX 22 and doing domestic houses? Won't it make it quicker or life easier when doing difficult windows over conservatories for example? Or cleaning fascias where you put a lot of pressure on shoulders?

    I don't care how I look, you should see the hat I wear. I injured my shoulder and wondered whether this would help shoulder on domestic 1st floors and ground floor windows? Or would the pulling it down be cause problems
