I imagine this has been asked B4, but, I would like to get some opinions (or better yet, facts) on which pole is better for home use. I want to get a 25' pole for the yard. 5" butt, 3" top. The placement will be near to a bedroom window (about 10' from house). Is fiberglass noticeably quieter than aluminum? (as far as noise from the clasps and rope smacking the pole). I am aware of the internal halyard systems, but I have listened to the noise of these (at a school) from the counter-weight and beaded strap riding the pole. As far as external halyards, I think I prefer aluminum, yet the fiberglass seems to have a few advantages too. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
