Hi and welcome to the site
Personally I use grey primer from Halfords.
I only spray the No. 1 so shove a pen up the end remove bush and let rip with the can.
I then stand it up on the pen with something in the tip ( to rest against wall )
If i was to do more than No.1 I would mask off with painters tape ( blue stuff )

Welcome to the forum big Bobby.

I've used a couple of grey undercoats on poles over the years and none did any damage to the pole. To be honest I've given up doing it as I think it's more to do with the silhouette than the colour. Just my thoughts. 👍

If you don't to cause a shadow or silhouette, then use the waggler. Simples. Welcome to the site by the way. :upthumb:
