    Will all dog eared channels you will find that rubber wears a little quicker at the ends. Soft rubber can wear very quickly especially on older frames. Razer Red is by far the best. I get great longevity from that but I do have all handles set at 25° now. More soap than normal to increase slip, 25° handle. A little bit of support at the clip ends in the form of plastic or wire sliver at the back between clip and rubber. Soft touch on the glass and you should be good to go.

    Just a thought:rolleyes:
    Wearing problem is about 5mm on each end of the squeegee rubber.
    Could say this is the weak point.
    So is there a coating that could be applied onto the ends 5mm on the squeegee rubber
    This stop/slow the wearing of the rubber at the ends.

    I use razr and can do at least a couple of months without flipping the rubber and that is with constant use

    I've ditched the razrblade red and gone back to Unger hard, like others have said, it leaves too many lines. I liked it to start with, maybe it is a bad batch?

    Hi Keefo yes, just a small piece of small zip tie between the back of the clip and the rubber. Acts like a retention clip and holds the rubber perfectly solid. Bob gave me the tip a couple of weeks ago. Works well. Nice bit of fine tuning...
