    Well it arrived and it has good pionts and bad points, the good, feels nice in hand, its very light, very stiff, looks good finish, clamps look and feel solid.
    Bad points, clamps are bulky, quick release Resi-Neck™ , well just isn't, the join in the pole hose leaks realy bad, the Resi-Neck™ Quick-Release is awfull, you have to move the hose out of the way to adjust the angle of the brush.
    I will be changing the Resi-Neck™ Quick-Release, I've already taken out the small section of inner hose, if only I could fit some streamline clamps I have the most amazing pole ever, however its still mint and I'll give it 8 out of 10 as it is. looking forward to giving it some hammer tomorrow. :)

    The quick release resi necks are same on clx I have, I put the wee lever to the bottom, opposite side of hose and it won't be in the way mate. Iv only used a clx and a Harris but I think the clamps are very good, although Iv had to glue 2 back on so far

    I'm not saying they will have a problem, what I'm saying is they ain't as good as the streamline clamps.
