    What you have, recommendations, etc. I have had a lot of the <$100 variety and they are just junk. They do not hold up (yes I am hard on things).

    I have an echo gas pole saw that is sweet, but looking for a lightweight hand pole saw this off season.

    arborist friend of mine has the 20 or 21' silky. Swears by it, but they like $400. Maybe worth it?

    Thoughts... go.

    I really like my Wicked pole saw. I have the biggest one and use it quite a bit on hang and hunts. So many people think they need the string pruner but I found I always ended up getting that string tangled in crap and am happy the Wicked doesnt have one.

    I recommend that you be careful. At least more careful than me.

    The limb :(

    Just about the time I thought, “That limb is dead. It won’t hang up there very long and it won’t hang and swing like a green limb would. I should move. Any second now...” Then the falling limb drove all those thoughts out of my head and as I turned away, I saw my hard hat; un-worn, laying on the ground, through the blood on my glasses.

    Those are brain cells I can’t afford to lose.

    Silky is far and away the best I’ve used. They’re a little pricey but you won’t be disappointed with how good it is once you try one.

    Is this the saw some of you are talking about? I see this is the last one. If this is not it can you give details of the one I need to look for? Also, do you feel you need all 21 ft?[​IMG]

    This is the other model I'm comparing, one is 20ft, other is 21. Not much difference. Just asking the guys with experience with these which is better? Why? Thanks guys[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have the wicked pole saw and hand saw and really like them but theres always that one branch that u just cant reach...mine was like 150 if I remember rite not the top of the line they make but super sharp and very well built...not ideal for a hang and hunt but I have a hooeyman I like to use for that! All depends how much your willing to spend on a saw

    Another vote for the Wicked saw. I have 2 of them. Previously I wore out a pole saw per year buying them at hardware stores.
