    I put down some purpose cut rubber matting off of eBay, very good and grippy.

    There very long goose necks, do you use them regularly ? I have a 10 inch one but find it a pig to have on so only use it when needed.

    I've got a long ali gooseneck from Gardiners and I can't use it either. I bought it before Alex brought out the c/f ones.

    I've improvised for the couple of jobs I have by putting 2 x angle adaptors together. We have a large commercial coming up and will have to revert back to this gooseneck but will try it with a wider brush as Cghwindowcleaning uses

    I noticed my 10 inch carbon one hiding in my van the other day, I decided to put in on to do some windows on my house, felt so weird I just couldn't get on with it at all.

    I found stability was my issue. The brush kept wanting to twist over side ways. Weight is also another factor on the ali g/n. It feels light but its very heavy on the end of the pole at height.

    The goose necks in the picture are not used all the time.
    They are the long ones I use on the odd job like an office I do above shops and a canopy.
    I do however always have the smaller 10 inch carbon goose necks on my poles over time I have got use to them and to me it feels odd with out.
    The longer necks are only used on high level work or window that are well set back.
    The longer ones can be harder to control.

    Thank you for your insight. I often wondered if c/f g/n would be a worth while purchase.:)
