    I think i have FINALLY got to the point where i have everything i need and enough spares to keep me on the road.

    It seem's like every month i needed to buy something. But apart from a stingray i haven't really purchased a lot this year Oh and some univalves :)

    Long live reliability lol

    I've bought nothing this financial year for my business. I only spend about £100 on stuff every 2 years( not including motoring expenses)

    It seems like there's always something new that I want to try out. Today I ordered a univalve, some v2 vision and a Gardiner ultimate brush amongst other things. I don't need any of it, I just like new things. Hopefully it'll be money well spent.

    I think the expenses are incurred when we try to save money by starting out with cheaper gear and the attitude of 'It'll do for now'

    However as we progress we go from Aluminum to glass fiber to carbon fiber poles, we could have saved cash if we did the smart thing and just bought Carbon to start with.

    I am sure Damo has had many incarnations of his set up as have I and to be honest it has taken me about 3 years to get to the point where I am happy with my gear. No need to spend cash now, just on consumables, occasional resin, replace brush heads when needed that sort of thing but unless they re-invent the wheel I don't see any big expenses at all in the future.

    I agree. I like buying new toys for work, it keeps me interested.
