    I just cannot make my mind up, i have got a phoenix 22 carbon. Its just a **** hair too short for some of my work so thought i would treat myself to a new pole?
    So pretty much 100% going for the new slx 25, just for a change and experience, but gotta admit the more i look at them i just dont know if i could do with the clamps, the facelift ones wear out and cause spinning but just make sense.

    I'm beginning to think after much much much reading and youtubing that there's absolutely nothing between them, i think with a full year under my belt with the phoenix and learning when is best to replace the clamps to prevent spinning therefore wearing out the pole itself, at this moment in time on monday i will be ordering another phoenix.
    But i bet i change my mind another 20 times before then lol, poor steve at aquadapter i bet i really get on his wick lol soz mate i dont mean too

    So input please, i know we've all been there, read that but one more time for me please......whats your preferences and why?

    gardiner ............ because there the bomb, iv heard few people slate the new smart clamps but work fine for me, the levers can move but if u tighten em up a bit it sorts that issue out, well has done for me anyways

    I got a quote from the ones from china and it works out like your saving 150 quid on every size pole...that was in comparison with gardiner poles, think it would b best just getting it from the uk to save the bolloxin around
