    I like fans but pencils are very accurate if trying to avoid bits on problem windows etc

    I prefer fan jets. My jobs - commercial windows cleaning. Pencil jets better for accurate work.

    Pencil jets seem to do it for me on every day cleans, fan jets on delicate windows like Georgian glazed as the pressure doesn't seem to force water in and around the lead.

    fan jets for me, but i run my pump at a low force (30) so its more of a sprinkley effect from the brush rather than a blasting misty fan spray.

    Pencils. More water in one place. Guess its just what you are used to. Sometimes use fans on solar panels with a wider brush.
