    It looks wicked. Shame it's shy of photos and have more view of the stock and gooseneck rather than the brush and bristles.
    Liking the colour.
    Looks funky.
    I want one.
    One ordered.

    Yeah I have put in an order in. As waiting on a lot of hose.

    Taken the new mixed extreme off after two houses

    Not for me at all. But then I never liked the old extreme
    Mixed.

    So will sell that and try this little beaut.

    I would have thought flocked bristles on interior trim would have been better for scrubbing as the outer trim splays out?

    [SIZE=medium]Flocked filaments don’t scrub Peter; if Gardiner’s new brush has Nylon monofilaments in the centre, then it will scrub better than a non absorbent filament. So this brush should have improved scrubbing ability. Still a very slow brush though, there just not enough bristles to make it even an average cleaning speed brush, let alone a fast brush. The flocked bristles are a mistake with any make of window cleaning brush.[/SIZE]

    Not interested in cleaning speed.

    Weight factor is far more important for me.

    If the weight keeps coming down then that's great.

    As for cleaning speed I honestly don't know how much quicker I could go with a better scrubbing brush.

    The extremes are very quick due to lack of drag.

    [SIZE=medium]But if you spend 2-3 times longer cleaning you get more fatigued. Multiply that over a week or the year. You can spend 30 minutes cleaning a job using equipment with a weight of 2.3kg, or spend over 1 hour doing the same job with the weigh of the equipment weighing 2.1kg.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]The time it takes to clean affects your business, health & wealth. You’re going to be earning less and/or work longer hours with a slower brush. If you’re physically strong enough to pick up a ready to use water fed pole that weigh 2.5kg, it’s possible to earn £50-£60 per hour [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=medium]Are there really any sound reason why anyone would you use a slower brush for window cleaning, I’m not saying it doesn’t happen. [/SIZE]

    I do get all that. But I can't see a house being cut in half with a quicker scrubbing brush.

    I only do two strokes on most windows. The glass is so clean its untrue.

    To half the cleaning time. I would have to start at the top pull down once. Go up once and rinse.

    What about awkward windows over consv and extensions.

    With a heavy brush some of the windows wouldn't be possible.

    But with a light brush I can do them.
