    I'm looking at buying 2-3 new WFP as my aluminium one's are getting slightly old now. I was thinking maybe either a Hybrid or Carbon Fibre.

    I'm liking the look of the NTEC Carbon Fibre 30 ft & The Reach-iT Mini. Anyone had one of these?

    These are a must!
    It must be 3 storey height (apart from the mini) and as light as possible but sturdy at the same time!

    Any suggestions? What are your fave poles?

    Cheers,

    James.

    rule of thumb for poles at the mo is gardiners. clx 27 for 180 quid, that's my next pole, or for just over 400, the slx 30. barely anyone has a complaint against these. wish i could get on the bandwagon sooner!
     
  3. Agreed, gradiner all the way clx 27 is mega light great value for money

    i have to agree with the lads clx is great value and if you have the work the slx lighter again these poles are sold as far as australia and the states so i think this confirms how good they are also their customer service is excellent

    Yep gardiners are great mate. I'm getting new pole soon. Going to be the full carbon slx. Hear great things about the clx tho too. But I use one pole for alot of my work, so gonna invest & get the slx. Makes a difference on a pole im using all day every day.

    Cheers bud, looking at them now, I see what you all mean. They are reasonably priced and looking at the vids on youtube, looks like everyone loves them judging by the comments!

    Cheers,

    James.

    I was debating whether slx or clx, as there's not a great weight difference, but slx is double the price. But it comes down to rigidity. When fully extended & the weight is at end of the pole, a bendy pole feels a lot heavier than a rigid one.

    I have gardiner's dual trim brush too, it's so good to use! Great with new swivel resi-neck.

    GARDINERS ALL THE WAY - just depends what you can afford. SLX if you can afford it worth every penny
