    decided to go back to the unger s channel today and it was like putting on an old pair of slippers, fed up with the temperamental liquidator, had it working ok sporadically but always seems to need adjusting to prevent draglines. Read quite a few threads and understand that it may be down to a bit of technique, rubber size, endclips etc, just seems to me that for the cost of them they should just work full stop.

    For me they have just worked from day one so I'm sold on them but for others? If they don't, they don't. Sell them, give them away and go back to what suits you. No biggie.

    Everyone is different
    Some people struggle with the entire channels as they are wider
    I have had no problems personally but if it don't work for you then use something that does

    I have had no problems using it, but i got wooden frames all over, so the rubber is torn within 1 hour witch means big expence in rubber. Got one office with loads of internals where i use it and it saves time, so i m back using my ettores. But nothing wrong with the tool as it is, it all comes down to technique.

    I suppose they work properly in their own handle, but for me they work OK in a Wagtail, I've never got one to work in an ordinary squeegee handle.

    They are a fad, nothing more, I give them 3 years and they will be selling off their surplus at poundland!

    I reckon in 3 years they will be developed into an awesome bit of kit

    definitely harder to use the moerman channel [when fitted into a wagtail ] than the original wagtail set up

    i know this cos iv been using the Wag-moerman non stops for weeks now but one day last week i got up my ladder realized my squeegee was still in my van so got a co-worker to throw me up his wagtail [original] squeegee and the glide was oh so much better it was a real joy to use

    hoWEVER i had to touch up the edges with a rag which i never have to do with the moerman

    im sticking with it but i dont love it not sure why its just a gut feeling . like i thought id got a great girl but then noticed moneys gone missing,cant put my finger on where its gone....
