    they seem to be doing a bit of touring had a txt yesterday to say they'd be in my area with sample poles & accessories to try out, they are in carlisle now so mebbe paulrods is on them, anyway be nice to see a few different poles. wish other firms would do this as the shows are all too far away from me to get too
    i've got an ionics 45ft carbon pole & its a beast, only use it for 1 job & thats enough so i hope they've got some better stuff to try

    I know why they are in Carlisle, the old company I used to work with are getting a second van with a new 1000l heated system, more money than sense.

    well well well interesting i must say, seen his range of poles & had a play & to be honest they looked good BUT looking at weights & lengths gardiners carbon fibre poles are lighter & more compact so they must be must be fantastic. you cant shorten ionic poles or get extensions & no quick release for brushes, no stops on poles, the clamps looked ok but not as sturdy so gardiners are still way ahead, now i need to get a look at the elite poles
