    I was curious to see if anyone has any experience with pulex regular rubber

    I currently use unger 3star soft rubber but have since ran out and the shop near me no longer sells it.

    I've got a good price for the pulex regular and was wondering if anyone rates it?

    Better then the soft and lasts a lot longer especially on the ends.

    Also when using soft, tend to find that you can get nicks in the rubber this doesn't happen so much on the harder rubber.

    I've been having issues with watermarks on the edges of the glass due to the soft rubber riding up onto the rubber seal on the window. I'm kinda hoping the regular rubber helps me get tighter into the edges.

    I detail a lot so that sorts the marks out but it would be kinda nice to not need to detail as much

    Sorry for babbling on.

    Will do mate. I'm hoping it reduces my detailing a bit. Might give hard a bash too, I've heard a lot of mixed reports about the hard. But I'll give it a bash and see.

    That's my first day done using the pulex regular rubber mate. And if I'm honest it's really decent.
