    What in your opinion is the lightest pole to use. About 20-25ft long and how much. I want a lighter pole and have not got a clue about them so need your input guys.

    Yes it's the size (tho I think they are slightly smaller, e.g slx-22 is 21-odd foot)- that is pole size tho, so add another 4/5ft for your reach.

    Price depends on what brush options you have etc.

    The clx is a good budget one, but the slx is full carbon & everyone loves them. I've had a go with one & they're very stiff. Getting one once I have saved my pennies (just bought van system).

    James P on here has one, he'll tell you how good it is, he loves it.

    Gardiner's are very good for customer service too. And their brushes are superb, i use the medium dual trim atm.

    dunno about slx but i can really recommend the clx 27 - you can use it 1 handed at full stretch

    That's out of stock but looks ok. By what I've read on here you all rate gardiners very high. Are unger any good for poles?

    'gradients'?!, you need to stop using that predictave text!.
    Seriously though, with regards to gardiners, going by opinion on here, its all good!. I hope to replace both my current poles with gardiner ones, but unfortunately i need 34' + for my highest windows, so that means £385 for the 35' sl-x, ouch!.
