    it won't feel right at first, try using it at a 20degree angle.

    It's weirdest thing ever.

    Gavbs pole was not a slx25....

    Ive got an slx25 and they are noit heavy at all....

    What you mean by its heavy is that when your holding it and putting it on a slant and keeping it at that slant for ages... u can feel it in your arms... and got to keep doing it.... But i love it when i feel like that.... u jsut gotta get the job done mate :)

    What i do is when its awkward windows over conservatories... i get a step ladder and stand on that and it makes life much easier for me... :)

    Slx25 is a great pole :) If i get another pole im going to ghet a clx though because their good aswell
