    i use the Facelift Phoenix 26ul pole for an everyday pole, no real need to get to poles as the carbon pole are light enough to work with.

    the phoenix pole has a 30ft coming out shortly.

    i find these are a great pole to use

    aaahhh the phoenix or the gardiner pole,i have both but when i open the van doors up every time i go for the phoenix-not because its a new toy its just a joy to use and so quick-will shave a couple of mins off every job.if it was me buying again i would go for the pheonix 18 and have the extra sections for when you need them to quickly slot into place,
    most will say gardiners as that is what they use and are happy with-fair do's and thats what i thought till i got the phoenix-well worth a look,you won't be disapointed if you go for one :Image9: :Image9:

    When you say the best, it's dependant on the type of job in question as all poles have advantages and disadvantages.
    Weight, prices, flexibility, rigidity, closed length, replacement parts, clamps etc etc too many variables.
    You have to make your own mind up.

    Would a phoenix 26 ft be big enough for most town houses and windows in roofs ect ? or would i have to get something bigger? they do 34 ft one but your looking at parting with 700 plus notes

    I used to do most 3 tier houses itch a 21 footer, 26 is plenty, I have slx 30 and the last section is used once or twice a month, the forth not that often!
