    I think the b&q pole is a favourite of boarcity .

    I have about 3 Harris poles and they are good, very well made for the price. But for trad poling I use under poles, can't go wrong with them.

    You can't beat a harris pole
    Especially if you clear gutters
    Put a progutter tool on the end and do a whole side without moving the ladder

    This pole in the video have had for many years without problems.
    Just stuck material on the lower part on the pole so to have better easier grip.
    Also the same on the collars to undo and tighten again easier grip when extending pole.
    Pole found in the painters section of the hardware.
    Aluminium painters pole.
    Over the years have changed the pole tips as well to what you see on it in the video.
