I had a CLX 27 for a long time. Have a xtreme 44 and a SLX 47, both I split and add on sections when needed. I would say anything under 27ft a clx would do. But any higher def get a slx. But if you could stretch too a SLX22 I would.

If you don't think you will need more than 27ft a clx is fine. I used it with a extension for a year and it was no problem.. just so used to my slx n xtreme would never go back

An 18 clx is about the same is use as an slx 22 weight wise but a bit more whippy.

 

22 clx i wouldnt want to use all day, i really want an extreme next :1f61c: although i cant stomach forking out 500 plus sheets for a stick

Hi have just purchased the 22 slx after using the 22 clx and yes the slx is a great pole however I would recommend the clx to anyone who is maybe starting out or on a budget. Yes the clx is more flexy but still good value for money

I watched two guys using CLXs the other day and boy did they look whippy even doing first floor windows. My first Gardiner pole was a CLX18 and my second a CLX27.  They were good poles for the money but as soon as I could I switched to SLX poles which were much better to work with.  My current everyday pole is an Xtreme 22 v3 and I love it.

Its absolutely shocking that you are having excessive wear issues so early on.

Get a SLX  I don't think that the new Xtreme is worth the money as the wear rate of a section is the same as a SLX section.

i hurd they were out quicker but this sounds good that you think they were about the same

It's sad that a company like that can have such bad after sales service

If that was a company like Gardiners etc they would do their best to rectify the problem

Amazes me that they are still in business with all the bad stuff i hear about them
