    I'm having the same problem, I've tried moving handle away from the window, lighter touch, heavier touch, everything that YouTube has said and still never perfect consistently, I've just tried razr red in and it's even worse!! I'm thinking I might mod it a little because when it works fine it's brilliant, I want it to work so bad lol

    Yh edges are great and sometimes no lines when I lift handle away from the window quite a bit, but always arched lines, really considering bending the clips back slightly

    Are you using the moerman soft rubber /? i swear by this rubber and at end of the day its what the channel is desgned to use

    i always cut the rubber leaving some small seca.jpg overhang past the tips, i use an anvil type secateur to get a perfect cut

    iv been using moerman rubber at least 2 yrs . i got into it after trying to find a budget rubber that would suit everyone in my small crew of workers . in that time since iv not once bought a duff batch, whereas prior i had so-so rubber experience of other makes,

    watch out if you buy precut rubbers cos any old tom dicc or harvey might carelessly let it rub on summat when cutting it to size[ruining the edge] ,instead i recommend you buy it in the big multi pack [10 lengths each of 42 inches] , its cheaper to buy that way but More important its sealed in the packet straight from the factory
