I think it's just the pole? No trolley for £270???

 

I think that trolley is about £450

I think I must be reading it wrong because I can't see how they can do all that for £270!

Well while I'm here, could anybody recommend a starter package? Is building your own or buying a cheap one just asking for trouble?

 

Yes it was deceiving......I nearly clicked the Add to cart button!

I was just looking at that Posh but then this DI vessel http://www.fullcleancentre.com/25-litre-di-vessel/ was half the price of the one in that package. In fact a lot of things on that site are cheaper but maybe a load of rubbish. Really haven't a clue what I'm looking at but I'm going to have to get something soon.

Thanks for the replies guys. I've seen those facelift poles tench, might get something a bit cheaper though to start off with. Is there really a massive difference between fiber glass & carbon fiber poles? I know there is in price so I'm assuming the glass fiber one have a tendency to break??

How do you find that backpack & pole Stuvy?

I did see that on eBay recently and thought with gardiner iv not only got a full spares support and warranty if I ever came to sell it in the future everyone is instantly going to know what it is as opposed to the eBay one

 

You could always make a Harris pole in to a cheapy wfp for not a lot at all or look on gumtree as there was two on there this morning

I have got an Unger 6 meter pole I could maybe make into a water fed pole. I've been looking at different systems all day & I keep changing my mind. Thought about building my own trolley but don't really know what I'm doing & probably end up spending more money than just buying one outright.

 

Looking at this now haha!

I've been looking at them Facelift poles on YouTube & the fact you can close them without getting a blood blister sold it to me! There's one in that pack i'M looking at in the link above. Just got to work out what other stuff I need to get. Hopefully get it all sorted sooner rather than later. I can think of a couple of horrible jobs next week where it would come in really handy!
