I'm a freelance live engineer and usually work alone when engineering for bands. My tops weigh roughly 24kg each, and so can be awkward to get them on standard poles. However, The winches are fantastic and make my life so much easier!
The poles are very sturdy and heavy-duty and the locking system keeps my tops pointing straight, which I've had issues with in the past using other poles.
The poles are quite long even in their lowest position, but are still at a height. To give you an idea... My subs are 25" tall and with these poles, the bottom of my tops sit roughly at my chin height (I'm 5'9").
All in all, I'm very happy with these poles and can't imagine ever going back to lifting my tops into position again!
