    thats the beauty of the tinternet. i and many others in the trade would likely never have heard of the Wagtail squeegee if not for the net . IF and its a big IF i had stumbled on it in a shop [its not on sale in my regions shops so how would i ever have seen one] even if one got here by luck i likely would have passed by it as it looks very cheap quality . looks are deceiving of course !
    thank christ for the Wagtail i say. its a great invention ,a real game changer

    Pity mr erken keeps making shoddy versions when he has some blinders too
    I was against wagtails on principle after having a row with the old drunkard
    But the slimline is a good tool

    i personally think he should have stopped at the slimline then done some proper marketing . the 2 supply shops near me rubbish the wagtail [why-lord knows-they havnt ever sold any ,could be the other makes are better visually

    ] , iv spoke to countless windies in my area over the yrs,none have ever heard of Wagtail .

    I agree, The wagtail is good on a pole i am getting quite fast, and with the mods detailing is in the past (use a new combi) But in my hands i dont like it, feels awkward.

    better to have the "dont give a sh.it " attitude ,where you dont look at the squeegee ,but instead you are looking at the window glass i found you get along a whole lot better

    this attitude/mindset can take ages to get to,usually comes after you have given up trying to accurately use the wagtail with a tensed up arm action and you relax cos you cant give a sh.it

    I never look at my squeegee anyway
    You can touch the tip of your nose with closed eyes as your brain knows exactly where your hand is so why do you need to follow your squeegee with your eyes..just look at the glass
