    i've used mine for a week and love it......but!!!! i cant see it lasting long, the bristles are spreadinging already. but it is beautiful to use i love the way it spreads onto the window and how it gets right into the corners and sticks to the edge of the seals. i might get their sill brush next

    You are right they have changed - due to market research and customer feedback a while back we made the change to slightly finer bristles to improve cleaning ability and speed on the glass. If this does not suit you as much send me an email and I can arrange a switch back to the type you like.

    No I do like the newer one. It doesn't seem to be as aggressive especially on leaded glass ;)

    Not sure if my brush, a super light dual trim medium, is the new or old design. How can I tell the difference if I only have one brush and nothing to compare it with? I absolutely love it for first cleans and monthlies. It's my favorite brush and the only one I think I'll be using. I'm the kind of guy who likes to keep it simple.

    Hi Mike

    First of all is it a white and red one? If so it is the very first softer version. If it is white and black one then the absolute way to tell is to take a vernier scale and measure the white outer bristles - on the newer ones this should read about 0.25mm (0.0095 inch) the older stiffer batch would read about 0.35mm (0.014 inch)

    If I were to take a look at it in a short video showing you brushing the bristles with your hand I could probably tell by the way they bend.

    If you bought it within the last 9 months then it will be the newer soft one. Drop me an email and I can always help you out further.

    You will be pleased to know Mike that from the 1st of April we will be having a US direct website that will be stocking nearly all of our pole and brush range in the US at nearly UK prices.
