    Ok guys, so I'm into week 3 of my 8 weeks recovery from surgery and I'm planning for my return.

    Step one on my agenda for needs is a new pole.

    Here are my priorities for what I'm looking for in a pole.

    1. Between 28-35ft.
    2. Light.
    3. Durable.
    4. Sturdy.

    In that order.

    I don't care about price, I don't care about brush, as I'll be slapping my Gardiners on there.

    I know some love the new Fusion poles, and I know some love the Gardiners.

    So I'll take ALL advice, but please if people have both, or have used both, please comment and give me your opinion.

    Only had slx as far as criteria goes, old model, superb. New version should be better still. Doubt you will go wrong with that or a Phoenix. Only thing I'd add is if money is literally no issue, the extreme I believe is the lightest and most durable.
    Hope the recovery goes well. All the best

    Looking at the Xtreme it seems very nice, if it's held in high esteem I may give it a go.

    Money is no issue because I can't afford to injure myself again, so when it comes to the fact cleaning windows is very repetitive I'm trying to keep my muscles as calm as possible and under less stress. So even spending £600-800 on a 35ft pole is worth it, especially as I'll be using it every day for years.

    Buy the extreme 25ft and the the extension pack.

    It adds 10ft and makes it a 40ft pole inc the reach part.

    Extension pack is EXT 35 and they one left in sale!!!!!!!!
