    I would love Alex Gardiner to make these available for all poles, as I think it would greatly help with repetitive strain, and less tiring with the higher work,

    Maybe two carbon fibre handles with an adjustable fitting mechanism (so it could fit all poles) would be brilliant, keeps them light being carbon, and some sort of adjustable strap so you can use them on all your poles would be great, I think there is a huge gap in the market for handles, it's amazing it's not been done yet, so we'll done Alex for thinking of it, and actually doing it!

    Some prototypes would be great? Just to see how it feels/works?

    I was doing a monthly office this morning and these handles would've come in handy...

    Love to give them a go!

    Dunno, I think I'd turn the top one 90 degrees so it was like a ladder rung to hold... But can't tell without trying it!

    You see I think that's brilliant spruce, I think that's worth a try even for everyday work, many a time I wish I could have the handle type grip at the bottom of the pole for better control and comfort...

    Yeah that's the one spruce posted Dave, but it's only for reachit poles at the moment, which no ones uses, Perry might make them available for all poles, but I'd like to see Gardiner so them for all there poles,

    Perry only recently came up with that idea, no ones used them yet, not seen anyone mention them, so don't know how readily available they are from Perry
