WARNING
Maximum length of pole manageable by an individual with good physical strength is limited to 10 meters.  This is due to the nature of relative weight of the far end of the pole at distance.  Beyond 30-feet (10 meters) is beyond the reasonable limits of an individual's personal strength and ability to control the hook-end of the pole. 

When a pole extended more than 30-feet (10 meters) is to be used, it is required to have the assistance of additional persons and use of counterweight on pole base is recommended.
