Recommended Posts

I just cannot make my mind up, i have got a phoenix 22 carbon. Its just a **** hair too short for some of my work so thought i would treat myself to a new pole?

So pretty much 100% going for the new slx 25, just for a change and experience, but gotta admit the more i look at them i just dont know if i could do with the clamps, the facelift ones wear out and cause spinning but just make sense.

 

I'm beginning to think after much much much reading and youtubing that there's absolutely nothing between them, i think with a full year under my belt with the phoenix and learning when is best to replace the clamps to prevent spinning therefore wearing out the pole itself, at this moment in time on monday i will be ordering another phoenix.

But i bet i change my mind another 20 times before then lol, poor steve at aquadapter i bet i really get on his wick lol soz mate i dont mean too

 

So input please, i know we've all been there, read that but one more time for me please......whats your preferences and why?

gardiner ............ because there the bomb, iv heard few people slate the new smart clamps but work fine for me, the levers can move but if u tighten em up a bit it sorts that issue out, well has done for me anyways

I got a quote from the ones from china and it works out like your saving 150 quid on every size pole...that was in comparison with gardiner poles, think it would b best just getting it from the uk to save the bolloxin around

Was speaking to Somone on Facebook yesterday about these Chinese poles, here's the link he gave me-http://www.composite-china.com

I too am looking for a good starter pole to go with my homemade trolley I'm building just can't decide which, for me it's out of the Phoenix and a clx

nnniiiiiiiiiicccceeeeee.......like someone said, they are ALL made over in china anyway!!!! That changes the ball game totally, i have seen a picture of a very similar pole to a phoenix x but with blue coloured clamps, i have to admit after doing my weekly maintenance today i just cant see me using lateral clamps.

Thats who i was emailed, got a quote on a bundle of 10 poles rangong from 22ft to 50ft and to be ohnest i compared prices to gardiners and it was like every single pole was around £100-150 cheaper from the chinks.

 

Decent saving but not the best, if they were half the price then it would be worth it, i think its probably going to be alot cheaper if your buying big big bulk.

Iike 1000 units per time.

 

We'll see if tenchs link will be any cheaper tho

Here you are tenchy.......scroll down to the bottom and you can see the different colours available, only thing i can notice is the clamps aren't chamfered to prevent finger nipping, also found all the clamps and levers for spares.....starting to wander if its worth buying some then flogging them lol

just looking on that ali baba and do you have to order a minimum quantity or something as i dont have a clue how it works!

would it be worth doing a group buy if somone we knew had bought some before and trusted the seller?
