    Yup looks good, get a couple of different size channels as well. Try Unger soft as well I had some pulex not long ago and don't like it (although some prefer it).

    Been going back and forth between Pulex and Unger, everyone either loves or hates them lol. Guess I need to try both.

    I was going to buy a Rojak Ladder Stopper but was told on another forum that they were useless if it was wet and ladder spikes are much better and grip to anything?

    Thanks for the tip.

    But not trade quality. If there was a great price difference in ladders I would understand a little, but when there is hardly any price difference between Diy (occasional use strength) and trade (everyday use strength) why go for the cheaper option tho?
