    What do you guys find aches the most when wfp ing all day,

    I find my left shoulder takes the brunt of it, nice lactic acid burn! Then my neck occasionally gets a bit sore,

    Also finding my fingers feel achy recently, from gripping the pole all day, not the other pole, I've got a wife:thumbsup:

    I find if you use poles like these you could end up with a bad form of aching [​IMG]

    Carrying all the money I make throughout the day lol

    On a serious note, everything aches after I've give the pole a smashing all day, but I work quick breaking a sweat on each job and got a cheap ass pole which is heavy as **** when I get home I can hardly keep my eyes open! But get my whites on an head into work to so my other job :-/

    Just my arms from lift that bloody reel out of van. That's my next task. I got a 18ft Ex Ceed pole and its taken a load of weight off. I can work much faster now. I use my SLX with 1 extension for the bigger jobs.
    Then I want 6mm hose instead of 8mm. That could make life much better again.
    Then when I am loaded (never) Ill get an electric reel

    I find my right shoulder hurts and can be tender and painful after a long days shining. I use SLX 25 and try not to overstretch. Also rinsing on glass helps.
