    I got hold of the manufacturers in china and asked them how much the carbon fibre poles cost. I have a price list in pdf and they are willing to send me one as a sample ($50) on top of the price plus postage.

    36f carbon fibre pole is £140

    26ft fibreglass pole is £21

    I will see how much postage is for 1 of each.

    Don't forget to add duty and vat onto it. When the courier knock on the door he will be wanting paid before he will hand over the goods. ;)

    The guy I bought my c/f pole from was trying to get established as a supplier here in the US, my pole cost $500 US (with brush and gooseneck) through him. Got to talking with him and was able to find out that you could pick up 10 poles via China for about $2000.00 US/around $200 each. Don't know if that was with or without shipping.
