Super max hm VS Slx. Gardiner Poles

Recommended Posts


Alright you bunch of W....... window cleaners


Getting another pole soon, currently got my 25slx on the market place here, will be buying a new 27, with a possible extension.


My question is, Slx or super max?

I’ve never held a super max, not much in weight, Slx slightly lighter. I just wanted to see what’s more popular and why,


thanks chaps 👍

I have a Supermax 35'  the two top sections are high modulus n its made from 3k carbon which as website says is there most robust pole.  I would say the supermax is a bit stiffer. Slx is still a good pole though at the height your using.

Got two smax poles. 50’ ish. Construction of the pole is good. I think there’s too many sections though. I’d prefer longer sections.

The poles have taken a lot of abuse and still haven’t snapped. 


I do find that if used horizontally at full extension, ie from a picker, the middle sags down quite a lot. But that’s reflected in the price I guess.


Get the best you can afford!
