    Well the time has come, finally going to be buying my first pole! Been holding out for the new Gardiner ones ever since I knew they were coming out, been adamant that it was the pole I wanted. Ultimately decided the 25 is going to be most suitable as will be using it for pretty much everything, will get sill brush with it too and the quick-loq connectors with it.

    Gonna be using it with a WCW Big Boy Backpack initially, are there any specific connectors which are better than others to use with them both as there's a few different ones. (I know Damo is probably the best person to answer this!)

    Looking forward to it all now, taken a while for it to all come together but getting there now :)

    Just been getting all my bits together mate. Dodger has done an amazing job on my logo, website, flyers and business cards so far. Been practising trad a lot at home at the moment, getting easier every time thankfully! Really can't wait to just get started now and get some flyers delivered!

    Yeah it was released today on sale... http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/SLX-II-Carbon-Pole--SLX_25.html

    Cheaper than the old slx-25 :Image7:

    Quoting Alex on here as well: "We have tried really hard with these new poles to keep the cost of the actual pole as low as possible and we have succeeded with this aim – as an example the SLX25 is now £215 compared to the outgoing model which was £245 this is despite having more technologically advanced clamps and features. Even if you were to add in the previously ‘free’ hose, connector and Resi-Neck it will still only come to £227.85 which is still a saving of £17.15."
