    Just got my 3 extra extensions for my SLX 18 and separate hose. The SLX's pole hose would be too short. Anyone got any idea how to store this lot to keep it all together when I throw it into back of car or van? A long thing bag and put pole in a plastic tube to protect it perhaps.

    slippy. I keep asking myself if you are for real or are a fictional poster who has invented a complicated life to have a laugh on this forum.

    Surely if you have ordered all those extensions then you need to have ordered the right length of pole hose to suit?

    Keeping it all together means carrying around a 35ft pole. Too heavy for my liking. I just wanted to use the SLX 18 or 22 as it's enough for 95% of jobs and keep the three extra extensions with extra hose in a bag or something for rare times I need them. Are the base caps the screw on plastic things that go on the bottom of the pole, then yes got them why?

    Use the longer hose and have a few extra yards dangling around. No dramas.

    Hi this might be silly but have you thought about getting a fishing pole bag if you can get same size as your extension poles it will keep them from damage and dirt and keep all together
