    Nmm, haven't had any problems getting things on or off so far, although the plastic tips are soft plastic so things go on tight.

    I considered the Unger poles for the optilok tips, but read on here the teleplus sections were pretty loose fitting and difficult to use extended.

    Selfish they are.

    Selfish locking cones. Though they look more like eggs to me, hence the confusion :)

    Got this in the same consignment, and the swivel t-bar.

    The porcupine I like, the swivel t-bar though is only good on a pole; compared to the Moerman fixed bi-component t-bar, the ettore swivel feels like cheap s*%# and the handle is just too small to be effective.

    Also this, cause adding more to my cart is altogether too easy to do..

    The clamp is surprisingly good, since it allows even pressure to be applied over a flat surface.

    i really wanted to like ettore trad products - i mean arent they meant to be the pros choice when it comes to trad?

    but,apart from the beanie hat ,their stuff hasnt worked for me

    i really rate their hat tho- you can work like a dog wearing it on cooler days and your head wont ever get hot . [ungers hat by comparison is only suitable for the lazy-ites ,i guarantee your head will be hot in it if you up the pace] EttoreBeaniebig.jpg
