    Is there much difference in rigidness between the clx 22 and the slx 22...

    I was thinking of getting an slx 22 but just noticed the is only 60g difference in weight..

    So is it really worth an extra £100?

    Hey Belfast

    I've been doing a lot of research on this subject lately.

    While a nice light pole is good, the key is the more rigid the better, so the 100 quid difference is not just about the weight difference, there is quite a bit of difference between the clx & slx in rigidity.

    Having said that, i'm not so sure how much difference that would make at 20/22 ft.

    But if it was me i would treat myself to the slx over the clx. A lighter and more rigid pole = a much nicer pole to be working with over 8 hours..

    Good luck

    one good thing about the clx is the whip in it,now used correctly this whip takes a lot of strain out of your body,so that 60 grammes in a more rigid pole may not be what you want ?

    Rolo: I have heard that before. Some guys like some whip on a two story job.

    If you decide to expand your operation and clean some three and four story mid rise commercial buildings you can buy more sections for an SLX and your're all set. The CLX would be to whippy at that hieght because the CLX is a residential pole.

    The CL-X is a budget pole, (Decent) the SL-X is a premium pole. (It's a lot better) Personally I don't think you can beat a good stiffy! :rolleyes:
