    I'm desperate for a new pole, my old one is falling to bits. Just bought a van system so just getting funds together for new pole...but should be within the next month or so.

    My problem is...CLX or SLX?

    I'm currently using fiberglass, so either of these is gonna be amazing compared to mine.

    I think the 22' pole will do me most of my work, and then would buy extra sections to add to it as it need them.

    How do the CLX and SLX compare? There's only 200g in it weight wise, but I know rigidity is a big thing here.

    I keep changing my mind...so any advice welcome!

    I can only tell you a clx 22 is a great pole and you can use it all day without a problem .I am sure a slx is a great pole but it is over twice the price is it worth it ?

    I have an slx 25 which I use for everything. I love this pole and use it all day everyday.

    I have not got a clx so can't compare but as above slx is more expensive.

    i'm in a similar yacht windyman, gonna need a new pole this yr and am torn. but i would definitely got for the 27/30 ft respectively, and take a section off rather than build on extra, works out a fair bit dearer.
