    Hi mates,
    First of all, excuse for my English, I am not from English-spoken country.
    I want to compare between these poles. Do somebody use them?
    I need to work up to 80 ft. I need it for an employer team, that cleans industrial buildings.
    Is X-treme works good above 70 ft. I will need to use a lot of extensions.
    Are Extension sections of Xtreme compatible with Ultimate? (The cost of Ultimate is high, I think to save money and buy Ultimate pole and less expensive extension section of Xtreme.
    Thanks for answers.

    Hi Yakir,

    We have tested the Ultimate on the Dutch cleaning show.
    The 46ft
    It is a great pole, little heavier then the Xtreme, but very rigid.
    If you want to clean regular at 70ft i think the Ultimate will be THE pole.
    It looks to me that you can add the hs #10 extensions for the Ultimate, but i'm sure the Ultimate extensions with control bars will be the best choose and much easier of use

    Not as much. I don't know where he got the time to spend on forums like he did tbh.

    He used to answer threads/questions mainly, but there aren't many questions raised today that haven't been asked earlier by someone else.

    Hi Yakir

    The Xtreme pole will reach these heights when used with all 6 of the HS extensions. However the new (being released in 6 days time) Ultimate will be a more rigid and robust option for such heights.

    The Xtreme pole with 6x HS extensions would cost - £1991
    The Ultimate with all 14 section and Control Bars would be £2695

    The Ultimate would be the easiest to use being fully telescopic in design, it is also the most rigid at these heights, however the Xtreme would be lighter by about half a kilo.

    The HS extensions section from the Xtreme will fit on to the Ultimate pole, but will obviously mean that it becomes partially modular in design.

    Here is a video link to an Ultimate being rigidity tested compared to the Xtreme -

    You have hit the nail on the head - most questions have been asked and answered many times now. The UK Water-Fed pole market has become far better educated and advised in recent years, due in part to the work of the Forums, this has meant that many questions get answered by other knowledgeable forum posters. This means I can make less posts than previously - however I am never far away!
