    clx are a great pole but you are gonna get people me included telling you to spend as much as you can eg an slx, but i would deff get the longest clx/slx you can afford if you can get a clx 27 you can strip it down to 22 if thats all you need at the moment

    the clx 22 is a good pole i wouldent get the 27 clx as its a bit wipy if u can strech get the slx22 thats a ncer pole to use as its stiffer also the xline poles seem to get good reviews on fb ill b trying one of them next time the clamps felt the best ive ever used to b honist but get carbon if u can aford it if ur defo guna get 50 50 carbon glass then the clx range is hard to beat imo

    when i first started into wfp, i bought a dodgy old brodex knowing nothing and quickly put an order in for a clx22 and was an amazing cheap first proper pole to start out with, i eventually moved onto a slx and would defo recommend paying the extra for a full carbon slx as they are alot more rigid but as a first pole you cant really fault the clx with a brush and hose too in the deal!

    I use a CLX-22 - I would say it's a good starter pole and probably much better than a cheap eBay pole. It can get a bit whippy on windows above conservatories. I'm looking at getting an SLX-22 in the New Year and might just use the CLX-22 for first cleans where I need to use virosol etc...

    Yep slx. I had an slx 25 great pole used it on everything. If you can stretch slx is well worth the money

    like all the others started off with a n tech 27 hybrid then heard about clx and was well impressed by the weight and quality then in the last #3 years moved on to slx and even treated myself to an extreme the other day I think if you use it everyday make it the best you can .
