    I use Ali poles, I haven't been tempted by CF poles for a couple of reasons.

    The ali poles take and get abuse. I would hate to think how quick the ends. Of CF poles would get damaged.

    Poles get gunged up with muck quickly, and that is heavier than the poles themselves, so the lightness of CF wouldn't last long into a clean before the mud starts clinging to the pole insides.

    On high cleans, I have an assistant and two of us can control long poles easier than just one person. Its safer too on high jobs.

    I've got the cf grippamax/gardiner twinned to the same numatic vac. The cf poles have survived a lot in the year, having a door slammed on them, bring thrown around, dropped etc.

    The plastic ring trim fell off them but actually made them easier to use.

    305g for six foot and I'd class them as hard wearing. My ladders look more busted up.
    It's the hose mainly, and vac hose inlet that usually gets blocked for me, not so much the poles.
    I've done about ten gutters in January and only used the vac once, I prefer ladder.

    It's the thick mud that fills the hose that pees me off, but what really pees me off is roof fabric membrane in the gutter and tile overhang, ladder beats those straight off so that's why it's become my first choice. It's nice to have the two Methods available though...
