    just thought id share , the SYR tiger sleeve [blue and white ]is a cracking sleeve . i almost overlooked it too

    When i first started out 6 yrs ago i bought a few different sleeves of different makes not knowing which was good or not. First impressions of the Syr was it was no good as it didnt scrub well and didnt hold much water either so after using it briefly i washed it in the machine and left it to one side. Months later came back to it and suddenly found it was scrubbin well. Long and short of is the fibres its made of are very like scrim fibre, you need to break it in first before it works well .Then it has a coarseness to it that makes it a fantastic scrubbing sleeve for everyday use. i now have about at least a dozen of these sleeves for my crew .

    Cheers boarcity. I am looking to get some new sleeves and had planned to buy the porcupine after it was recommended on here, but might give the tiger sleeve a try.

    As a matter of interest, how often does everyone change their sleeves?. I have been using the same ones for 3 years.....probably not good.

    I suppose I should change mine soon considering its the only one I've ever owned. :oops:

    Its an unger ninja and it still seems like the day it was bought, but I bet I would notice the difference if I bought a new one. I'm open to trying some different ones though.
