    New toys are always great. Smart clamps. Mmmm. Might put some on my old pole and see if they improve what was ruined by the old clamps.
    Has anyone fitted smart clamps to a worn pole and had an improvement?

    I fitted the new clamps to a clx I had, didn't make much difference really, plus when open the new clamps are loose, so sold the clx

    But you sold your smaller pole to Kentkleen a while back as you wanted only 1 pole to do everything. What's changed?

    I have a play with another window cleaners clx 27 the other day and I wasn't too inpressed.

    Although it did feel light.

    Think the clamps I would get use too in time but it wasn't love at first sight lol
