    I need a new 18 foot pole and was about to get a the new brodex hybrid but noticed the phoenix pole. Both of them are around the same price but the phoenix seems to have better clamps.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Avoid Brodex on my personal opinion having bought and used one.

    I've used facelift poles for a good 8 years and they're good, but look at the warranty and pricing as well as reputation.

    I'm going Gardiner next, used them a few times and so much better than facelift it's scary.

    i just got a unger nlite, i got the hybrid one (same as clx type) i like it, feels very good quality, and the brush i got with it is as light as the extreme gardiners i was using, when i held them both in my hands wish i had got the carbon one

    Phoenix all the way, if you could stretch to the 22ft one then that would last longer as sometimes a 18ft isn't always quite long enough.

    I just bought the 22 foot phoenix pole. I do have 2 other poles that are bigger but this will be my main one.

    phoenix 18 is a damn good pole,same weight as a clx but a hellova lot quicker in use-its those clamps that make the difference,i got the cheapest one to try but it very quickly paid for itself in the time saved during the day so i can fit an extra job in-pay back time for me on this pole was around eight days in total,gardiners extreme brush on the end is well worth having-buy one you won't be disapointed
