    Not sure which poles o go for I know carbon poles are lighter but I heard they do break compare to aluminium poles which are very strong but heavier

    Only ever used the carbon....most I've used is 4 and I wouldn't want to try with anymore than that, it was hard work with 4 carbon so dread to think what it would be like with ali.
    Never come close to breaking one yet.

    Hello,
    We find Carbon poles get dirt stuck to the sides of them just like aluminium poles.
