    I have used the skyvac 44mm poles very light and with the big machine doesn't block that much think the gutter sucker ones are a hybrid mix not 100% carbon saying that the poles are expensive from skyvac am looking into getting some 52mm poles for really heavy ****.

    I narrowed it down to two the Grippatank Carbon ones @370g
    But I'm also looking at blade right aero space alloy
    Not sure which way to go don't fancy a hernia so opting for carbon but the alloy will take more abuse
    Any one got the blade right poles how do they compare to a set of Grippatank Carbon poles

    I just bought the Grippatank poles after weeks of looking around,,they should arrive next week as they are out of stock when I ordered
    Also went for a bottom halve section at 3ft might help me out one day.
