Ok so let me begin this with a little context and background… I haven’t used an Ettore pole in 2 YEARS. On my first day of training 2 years ago, on my very first pulldown, I broke the tip clean off. It was literally brand new, fresh from our local shop. Since then, I have not attempted to use the Ettore pole (the orange standard one) out of fear that it will just break within a week.
FYI - I use the Ettore Back Flip and Unger OPTI LOC 3-section. I have never had any issues with Unger tips breaking or even cracking. But… I’ve always wished that I could snap my Back Flip onto my pole. After a while, my Back Flip t-bar becomes loose on the Unger pole and will often pop off if I come down onto a ledge with even just a tiny amount of effort. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been pelted in the head by my falling mop lol. So… I would LIKE to give the Ettore pole another shot with the updated Back Flip that snaps onto their tips, but not if it comes at the expense of pole-durability.
Your opinion? Thank you!
