  1. This is something the company I work with have just brought out.

    They are awesome! Why no one has done this already is a mystery to me.

    Isnt that just a variation of an end cap?, not really a new idea surely?. I can't justify a carbon pole anyway so it doesnt affect me, but given the cost of them, i would have expected a carbon pole to already have some protection on the bottom?.

    on the bottom of the unger alloys it's a green plaggy fitting, and mine, on the section i keep as outside is down to the nib, the one on the next section poking through, so using alloy as end cap will last much longer, although if the closed length is quite short, not such a wearing issue, but won't crack if it takes a heavy knock.
    are you part of the team what makes it clearview?

    Looks good - but I much prefer the Pure freedom ones that make sure the pole hose is never caught.

    Would also worry about anything you knock with the pole - instant scratch/dent on a car, or worse.

    Good idea, but I'll not be changing

    Good point Dave, i had another look at the pics, very sharp looking edges!. Its a constant worry if working round a customers car, though i usually try to keep my hand round the bottom of the pole in such circumstances so if the worst happens, my hand will hit the car 1st!.

    I do the same - bit paranoid about it.

    I clean at the main Ferrari dealership - could be VERRRRy bad!

    Their service centre is even better - 12 Bays - fully fitted, and normally 3 or 4 engines being tuned - sounds fantastic!

  10. oooo Ferrari....see if you can sneak some pics for us :)

    Do you guys all have the hose going up the inside of the pole??

    Reason I ask is because i have been converted to having it run outside the pole all the time now for a few reasons.

    1) The clinking of the hose inside the pole drove me mad!
    2) If i wanna change brush head or pole...done in seconds
    3) Hose not around your feet at all, so no trip hazard for you or anyone else as the hose is in your view all the time
    4) the hose doesnt drag dirt or grit up the inside of the pole and into the clamps (ive got no scratches to my poles anymore from this)

    This is all good but the only downside is it sometimes gets caught in the odd bush, but all you have to do is flick the hose n it wraps itself around the pole, one more wiggle and its free again.

    All i can say is TRY IT (for a few days to get used to a new way of working)
