    Hi all I'm looking for a lightweight but sturdy pole that doesn't flex too much. And I'm not sure on which brush head ill need. Aluminium or fibre glass pole ? I've currently got a fibre glass pole not sure of the make with a vikan brush head the pole is slipping into itself and I've tried adjusting the clamps won't hold I think the poles worn out. My budget is 200 ideally which I know isn't alot.

    Spray each pole section with clear lacquer and the clamps should grip again
    Learnt that from a youtube vid by Damo
    Build up a few layers where the pole clamps

    This is the vid

    They spray the raised bits designed for clamping on the gardiners pole
    My pole isn't like that so i spray the whole lot with 1 coat then the ends around the area i usually clamp them i build up a few layers
    My pole isn't old but i found it still makes a lot of difference on fibreglass poles
