    Really, this stuff is not made exclusively for 'facelift' or whatever, is it?. It's just that unger make their stuff in red indicating janitorial use:

    Maybe the red rubber is also unger. And it's a tough grade beause it's intended for other surfaces as well as glass?

    they also code their stuff in blue, for home use. Maybe I should get some and call it my exclusive skyhawk blue?

    Interesting I have recently purchased the firbeblade bundles and load of the fireblade rubber
    Not sure what the intended use is for the rubber but I must say it's awesome rubber It never lines leaves residue and It never seems to need changing although I change it every week just out of habit

    Yeah, I'm not saying it isn't good rubber. I've never tried it, but I want to. I just think they WCW/facelift are pushing it a bit, acting like it's exclusively made for them. Or maybe it's a different rubber. Actually, I can't see a red rubber in that picture on the unger website.

    Oh, the green rubber, yeah way too soft, yet looks all plasticy.

    The red rubber - 'razr rubber' as its called, is amazing, it's the best rubber by far, lasts for ages and ages and ages...

    But it may well be that the fireblade stuff is just unger stuff, I've always wondered if it was because it looks exactly the same as the green 'usual' unger stuff, never bought any of it, but was always suspicious from the pics.

    I can say first hand the green rubber is shocking, I really wanted it to be good, (I love the green colour, looks great in a black squeegee) but it was awful, just falls apart at the ends within a few houses..

    Don't bother with any other rubber than the red razr rubber, nothing on the market lasts anywhere near as long, the Moermon rubber is no match for the red rubber.

    I think the real exclusivity lies in my white unger bucket. Did you guys ever see a white one? I never saw any other but mine. I went and bought it from the federation in Reddish many years ago, I live nearby
