My shoulders are both feeling it but i think it is the 6 day weeks doing it to 1 and not letting my damaged rotator cuff heal on the other 

Ice and anti inflammatories are the best thing Lee

Ibuprofen is ok but naproxen or diclofenac is best if you know anyone who has some

My  exact pole setup, ultimate brushes and now power up hd reel, my shoulder is dicky but wvery little weigh saving helps as far as I'm concerned, maybe a extreme 18 in the future.

@tench0771 only you will know if its the same weight as a SLX-22  by the feel of both of them by being able to make a side by side comparison, I have directly asked suppliers in the past on forums about their weights and they just ignored my questions so i often thought they just copied the Gardiner weight specs to sell their poles. 

The Elite pole I posted a pic of last week or so which X-Line bought out and just re-branded poles years ago claimed the same weight specs as some Gardiner poles and side by side holding each pole I can tell you they didn't weigh the same. I still have both poles in my garage and my S-Max is the lightest. 


As for the new Xtreme not so sure I would by one I had a quick look on another forum and a guy on their who practically worships gardiners and the previous Xtremes  said the wear rate was the same as a SLX and felt fragile I think he snapped some sections as well. He is now happy to revert back to the SLX range.

My current everyday pole is my own type of hybrid in a way started off as series 2 Xtreme with metal bands after 11 months No3 section snapped and was replaced under warranty with a series 3 xtreme section due to stock issues, Then in Jan of this year section No2 snapped so I got my brand new unopened SLX-22 out of the box and replaced the section with the No2 SLX section, Section No1 has barely worn because of the metal clamping bands so none of the typical top part wear issues. Its the best pole I have ever owned.

@Damo bought the series 2 Xtremes in bulk a good while back I think it was gardiners was going to stop selling them as complete poles due to the series 3 been released.

yeah i feel that mate i got 2 extentions that I use for a few job and once im done and I take them off its a sigh of relief! I just got the pole as I was starting out and thought they would be good but ive done plenty of research since then and I won't be going back! I get the shoulder thing as well not sure if its the pole or a old injury getting agitated but i'm defo looking to reduce pole weight as much as possible hope the shoulder settles over the weekend I know how hard a Monday with a bad shoulder is!

Rinse on the glass saves a lot of strain

I rinse on the glass 99% of the time whether top or bottom windows

A lot easier

Especially as just been to the gym and done full body workout on the weights.. no pussy footing around just heavy compound lifts after a full day of conny roofs and fascia cleans

Arms are gonna be no good monday lol so on the glass makes the difference between managing to work and just wussing out for the day
