    Slip and using it at the right angle away from the glass depending what handle you are using is the key... if you don't have a good slip on the glass and the right angle no matter what rubber you use in those channels you will struggle. Also you have to adjust your style as they don't like tight turns either due to the design of the end clips.

    I bought some red Razrblade for mine http://www.bladerightcleaningsupplies.co.uk/p.php?p=FaceLift- It came today, so I cut a few lengths. I only have 2 trad jobs tomorrow. Will keep you posted.

    6 weeks and not changed my razr yet
    To be fair i have been using mostly my wag for nearly 3 weeks though
    The razr in that's not worn either

    The moerman rubber that cones with the liquidator isn't built to last imo

    I'm supprised moerman don't supply liquidators with good quaulity hard rubber instead of that soft rubber which to be honest is not that great.

    The razr is silicone rubber instead of natural rubber which is why it performs differently.
    I am surprised more companies haven't made any silicone rubbers
