    a quick demp in hand of the features followed by my poling efforts, im very new to poling for a tool like this, i did have a go with wagtails a few years ago but never quite got into it properly and went wfp for any poling

    if i can get a decent mod for detailing and or window sill tool i would consider using this on customers, but for those handy with a wag , you will like this i imagine.

    Jonny there's a couple of things that needs to be kept in mind here. First and foremost this has been designed and tested by Bob primarily as a pole tool and if you've been following his Youtube channel plus a couple of the guys in the US they have always made heavier pads for the Wagtails because that is ALL they used them for...pole work...so the weight of the pad has no bearing on bio mechanics. In hand you have a couple of choices. Use it as a bare fixed squeegee, or as a pivoting squeegee (sans pad) using a scrubber in the other hand as normal. Alternatively I may investigate making a smaller lightweight pad for in hand use... and actually you're way off base "use it daily in hand with that pad? You'll have RSI by the end of the week"... :)

    I am very good with swivel on a pole due to Bobs help and Wagga
    Looking good though Paul

    A bit of practise and you could leave the ladders at home

    Well, isn't this the Wagtail, but with a flexing handle, and the flip-over pad on the top? I've been using one like this for several years with the pad underneath, and in the last year with the Liquidator channel. The wash-pad, being square is the way I have it, and you will find that the edges will wear away after a time, making it useless. I make my own pads, and sew square pieces of the soft Velcro at the edges, which will act as a scrub-pad and also stop the pads wearing away. I can't personally see that it is that much different. Sorry.

    I'm sorry mate but you won't find a wagtail that performs like that even with a liquidator channel
    The swivel is what it's all about and this swivel is extremely sensitive
    Try one and i bet you'll prefer it
