    Nice one mate. Like that bloke needed any more squeegees on his belt. lol:rolleyes: I'm gonna tag boarcity on this thread as i know hes interested in these moerman boabs.

    I'm finally getting by belt how I want it with a good little idea on the pouches, but I'll get it just right before I post the pic up.

    was going to buy the Moerman boab, and Tolish kindly tipped me off somebody selling them cheaply on Ebay.
    but now iv spent time fixing /raising the quick release on my gangs Pulex boabs , a really useful mod that is,erlier in this thread - im going to see how they go for a while.

    a boab that i cant yet understand whether is it a good one or bad idea is the pvc boab and the Wagtail boab,both makes have a plastic bag set up instead of hard plastic - now i can see its going to be a tad lighter and kind to the rubber blades . but how long does the bag last?

    Could have something to do with the fact that all there squeegees are a different shape, so they'd have to make it fit all. Although I'm not even sure if the boabs fit squeegees in, I've never seen one in person.

    Good point tolishpurd, wagtails are a very different shape to regular tools so could well be the reason, although wagga just cuts a slot in his hard plastic boab doesnt he.
