    that will be the hybrid.love the clamps on these phoenix poles.i use the full carbon.shame they stopped making the 18 ft carbon!!they only do a 22 ft carbon with these clamps.the hybrid will be a bit whippy for you, compared to a carbon pole.

    What size you after? I wouldn't recommend any "hybrid/glass" pole above 18ft. The extra cost of full carbon will pay you back 100 times over.

    Had my two carbon facelift poles for 2 years and still going strong, no issues at all,

    Gardiner wins for quality, but I prefer the facelift clamps,

    My dream pole would be a Gatdiner pole with facelift clamps,

    The facelift clamps are so easy to use, and so fast, no spinning, pole doesn't spin when bringing it down, and you can do it one handed with ease,

    Would love Alex to bring out the option for similar clamps on the gardiner poles
