    Hi guys
    Can you advise which squeegee is best?

    I currently use the basic Unger green one, 12 inches long, which I would like to cut down to 6 inches, so I'm looking to get a second. Is the Ninja a good one?

    Regards
    Jon

    The unger ergotec are my favouites now, but I use the ergotec xl for my 14in as my hands are a bit too big for the normal one.

    I'd get a liquidator, if not any stainless steel really not a huge difference

    Mine's a variation on a theme. (Modded PC Flipper). Didn't like the pad on the Moerman channel UNTIL I got hold of some of the new clips that are on the Precision Glide. They keep the pad further away from the rubber making it easier to close out. **** weather over the weekend so I put my Army sewing skills to use and reshaped the pad to the way I think it should be made anyway. I'll post a pic of my current setup tomorrow...but...I have to say the Wagtail Disc and handle and Liquidator channel is an absolute winner...

    I agree, the Ninja ain't great! I like the handle but as a complete squeegee i find it cumbersome. Seems to leave a lot of detailing too! I'm not an expert on modding...yet, but not sure if it's easily done on it, think you have to remove the end clips and dog ear the channel?

    To mod it you may as well use a standard unger channel
