This extreme is spare and has been used for around 5 or 6 days in its life. Had a call from a fellow company and was desperate for some window cleaning gear. Lent him a few poles, he helped me when we had some issues. This is one of the extremes. Notice its a bit shorter. Section 1 snapped at the end. He lent it against rear door, rear door was open and snapped the top section as it got crushed in the door opening with the wind. Not happy to see a pole giving back to me this morning in THREE PARTS!!!!
