First pole was this weird Unger pole maybe 20’ looked just like a trad pole but was curved at the top. Then a Tucker 45’ aluminum complete with soap dispenser. Then an ABC copy of the Gardiner modular pole, stiffer than anything ever right up to 60’ but fragile as all get out. Then a Gardiner CLX which I thought was great until I got wind of all carbon fiber poles and picked up a RI – Pro which I picked up about 4-5 years ago. I like it despite constant clamp problems but now only use it on bigger stuff since at 7’ collapsed it really isn’t a good match for resi which is 95% of what I do. So now my main squeeze isince early last year is a 25’ Simpole, collapsed length of under 5’ and all Hi-Mod. Perfect for what I do and I can add a couple of sections from the RI-Pro when needed. I like it a lot and can just go over to Phil’s house and pick up parts. I still use my CLX, floppy as it is, as a trad pole.

    I’m going to say Phillip reminds me of my dad. Brilliant mind and won’t settle for 2nd best. I have been in the window cleaning business for 30 years and after seeing his poles at the IWCA Convention I know he makes one of the strongest most durable poles out there. They are not the lightest in which you have to pick your poison. This being said there are the different vehicles for each individual, you have your Mercedes, Toyota’s and Hyundai’s of wfp’s. To each is there own but I will be the first to go on a limb and say after seeing his products these last few days those poles I was extremely impressed. Well done Phillip John Alexander

Simpoles are great poles for multiple purposes. You probably know about using it for water fed window cleaning, but I have also used mine for cleaning solar panels, cob webbing, gutter cleaning, softwashing, and snow brooming. It is a light but durable tool.

Phil Alexander is always available when I need advice, and has always been helpful to anyone that asks for it, in many forums. Thank you, Phil.
