    Jeez man, you have really stuck a spanner in the works!, i have been drooling over gardiners poles for ages now and getting close to being able to afford to replace my 34' fibreglass brodex. now you are telling me that the gardiners clamps are Swear word!, which (apart from customer service) is the only real problem i have had with my brodex poles. Now i'm not so sure about the gardiners poles!, thanks!!, Doh!.

    Sorry i thought it was common knowledge the clamps were **** they are small and week but they are easy to repair and the poles are so lovely and light you just get on with it but i have heard a lot of good things about the elite poles recently

    gardiners pole are light, but the clamps are Swear word!, one prob i had on mine was i had to keep tightening the clamps so much that my hand use to hurt when opening and closing it, it turned out the section was wearing away, i replaced it with a xtel section and not had the problem since, saying that i would still buy an other

    Well i suppose del boys van (reliant supervan is its proper name!) and my 34' brodex pole do have two things in common, they are both made of fibreglass, and both pretty unstable in the wind! :)

    I have an Elite 30, very happy with it, clamps are good, have a look at the Reach it poles as well, Clearvue on this forum sells them.
