    Facias and high up work are the two worst things with wfp and muscle strain Dave, that's why I find it easier and better to do facia cleans by hand on the ladder, it's hard work cleaning facias wfp, maybe give that side of things a miss with the pole, and go back to ladder and cloths...

    It's hard work doing S/F/G with a WFP. Buy a carbon pole Davey, it'll make it easier.

    I've been fine so far but now am thinking i may need a slx
    I am prone to injuring that shoulderever since i tore my subscapilaris..front one of 4 rotator cuff muscles..was over 50% depth tear in it
    2 years to heal rather than have surgery and always seem to hurt it even after 8 years

    I'd a avoid doing facias with the wfp, that's defo what's I cause the most issues for your shoulder, it's so much more strain on the shoulders than Windows

    Cut the panzy BS excuses Davey.

    Only justification you need to buy an SLX is can you afford one?

    :p

    I have a 30ft fibreglass jobbie which i struggle with all the houses i have with loft conversions
    If i had a more rigid pole i reckon 30 would be more than enough
    Both houses in this pic i do..
    Hard work getting the top ones and velux above the conny with 30 ft fibreglass
    I have 19 houses in this road and most have these windows or are townhouses
