Gardniers Clx Vs. Brodex Hydra Vs. Facelift Renegade


Recommended Posts

I'm sure this is a topic that has been discussed a few times before but i'm looking to get a pole for 2nd floor windows, i'm thinking 25ft +


All the poles above would be in my price range but really want some points of view from people who have used them. I'm aware the Facelift is yet to come out but want to know peoples thoughts on the clamps and build quality of their other products.


Any advice would be welcome before I part with my hard earned cash

Dude, save a little extra or go without for a couple of weeks to make 9r save the money required for an slx. Honestly.

Although, the clx27 is a good pole if you have only ever used fibreglass/aluminium poles before...

People say its a bit floppy but for a composite pole its bound to be a little.

From what i gather of the facelift, people love the clamps, and rate them higher than gardiner clamps, but the new gardiner clamps seem quite good on my slx2

The other pole i'd consider is the xline poles (cant remember the name, heard a few good things, although think the prices are a little dear for what they are....

Wouldn't bother with brodex (for poles) one word.....rubbish


Personally i'd try saving for a fullcarbon pole if you can, a little dearer, but i weant from a fibreglass pole to an slx and it was well worth it!!
