    When using a 3 part extension pole - is it best to fully extend the middle part first or the part with the adaptor cone on it first
    Ie fully extend the middle section and then the top part to reach the window ?
    Thanks

    I would extend from the end, as it would make the end feel lighter..

    Yup and probably easier, once the middle section is extended it'd be hard to reach and extend top section without bringing pole down.

    ONLY extend the first end pole(the lightest) if need to use it, other wise extend all the others first,

    Have you got an unger aluminium pole?

    If you extend the end pole first (and dont need to use it) more chance of it breaking as you say its really wobbly)
