    Hi been doing trad for a while and I am merging over to wfp so was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a good pole to start off with as I have been given one but seems rather heavy . Not looking to spend loads , unless someone has a good second hand one for sale ?
    Also any tips and hints for someone starting out with wfp would be great.

    hard to come by, trouble with gardiners stuff is it sells on ebay for almost as much as it costs new just less the tax,
    if you get a 27 & don't need the height often you just buy an end cap & take a section off untill needed
    a 27 does 3 story ok but you can get extensions if needed

    Yeah I have noticed that on eBay. I was watching a 22 the other day and it only just started and it was on £73 with postage ! I could get away with using a 22 I think

    My friend does wfp so he's giving me the water so that isn't a problem and I have a trolley system with 25l tubs . I just wanted to try and get a light weight pole that's not too expensive to see how I get on .

    Get yourself an 18 and a 27 bud. You will find an 18 will cover 90% of your work on 2 storey domestic and the 27 will do 3 storey, over connies etc.

    Cheers, Mike
