    Most of them are dogeared in a wagga style, unger, pulex.

    The one furthest to the right was the first one i ever dogeared about a year ago, that is a pulex. The second from the right is where ive split the channel too far as an experiment which i dont recomend. The rest are all about right and i get very little deatiling when using these.

    This is my ettore which has been dogeared the way polz n bladz does his, its my favorite as its not prone to damage when dropped, the wagga style split channels are great too but will bend out of position easily when dropped, u can of course bend them back but eventually they will break if u are unlucky, also i spend a lot of time filing and sand papering these so they are not sharp anywhere, but its very hard on the wagga style and they end up "biting" scratching u fairly regular, whereas the polzn bladz one doesnt have "teeth" and is more hand frieldly.

    I am the same..have lots of channels which i seem to collect
    Any that are no good anymore tend to get chopped and played around with until they do and then never used again
    It means i buy rubber in long pieces for the odd sizes
    Been using the same 4 lately so the others just sit in the shed
    My daily setup consists of 5.5" 2x10" (1 30° and 1 0° swiveloc ) and a 14"

    Interesting u have x2 10" dave, with different handles.

    Ive probably had a different set up every month for the past year, it will be different in a few weeks im sure.

    I find the 6" is best as the smallest, i have a 4.5" which rarely will feel any benefit from instead of a 6". Whereas a 6" is a gd all rounded for top openers and window sills

    I have 2 10s both on swiveloc handles
    30° is for normal 0° goes on my pole over bushes / above connys etc
    The 10 seems the best size for 0° as i can fan openers etc with it on the pole
