Verdict: Unbelievable. Every model is better than its competitors (which were twice the price). I bought the Shock Core Fusion XP35 and it's the best pole I've ever owned. I've been so impressed that I've now bought the Shock Core Fusion XT15 as back up - a great pole in itself.
As with all Middy gear, I can't say anything bad and I can't recommend Middy's products highly enough.
Thank you Middy, you have a customer for life.
