    hi folks
    looking for a budget pole for fascia/guttering pvc work
    i dont plan on doing windows so the pole wont be used all the time probably just an add on to gutter vac work
    looking for 25-30ft pole i think
    has to be cheapish and stiff
    cant afford to go down the carbon route
    any recommendations

    Yes I'd recommend a CLX27 for budget comprise as that should be enough to reach past most conservatories.

    Thanks for the replies
    I was thinking aluminium might be more rigid??was looking at the renegade facelift or brodex summit
    Never used any type b4 tbh
    What would be more rigid hybrid or aluminium?

    You won't need a really rigid pole for S/F/G. Your brush will be resting on the plastic a lot of the time. Just buy a CLX-27.

    Aluminium is much heavier.

    no good?the weight?or what
    i feel like i should clarify that the pole will only really be for when custies ask for fascia/gutter exterior cleaning when clearing there gutters with a vac
    maybe 3-4 times a week say
    it wont be used everyday nor do i plan on doing windows
    the clx-27 looks good but a little pricey for occasional use
