    Or Gumtree etc.

    I am curious to ask you WFP boys if you have any tips about what to avoid in the world of second hand poles on the internet.

    I am shopping for a pole just to do conservatory roof scrubs so dont need huge lengths and dont need to spend £1000000 for one.

    Just a good condition used pole and brush will suffice but are there any key factors that cause defects ect to be wary of?

    Cheers.

    yep and harris poles, as some one, I think daveyboy said are only cheap new...

    ali tend to bend and wont shut open easy

    carbon wear gradually and then the clamps not so good..

    glass fibre...well banana is doing well so far..although it is getting a bit loose...

    I think second hand is generally for a reason..:D

    Most will get shot of their knackered poles on fleebay so its very rare to get a good one at a reasonable cost
