    The smax50 is a good pole.
    A friend of mine has one that gets used loads and says its a good pole.
    Side by side in comparison against the 47 extreme ,the extreme will be lighter and stiffer but the max will reach slightly higher at around 55ft.

    We have had several clients ask this type of question so we have just posted a video showing the two poles - SMAX50 and X3 Xtreme47 - in use on a 5 storey property - neither pole is fully extended, but are being used at about 42ft in the videos.

    Hi Tench

    The old model Super-Max 47 Compact is exactly the same as the current SLX47 - whilst it is very compact it is not quite as rigid in use as the SMAX50.

    The 47 looks a lot rigid then the 50. I'm in catch 22 I'm turning work away because of the pole size. I may wait save a bit more for the 47

    What cannot be shown in the video is just how much easier the Xtreme47 is to use than a standard carbon pole such as the Super-Max50.

    If you only need the pole for occasional work of limited time quantity then the Super-Max50 makes a good option, but for those carrying out a lot of high level work the Xtreme47 is a much easier option to work with.

    I guarantee you that if you were to use both poles you would buy the xtreme 47. It is much easier to use and trust me, at 45/50ft every gram of weight and every degree of extra rigidity counts.
