    In winter which type of rubber do you prefer to use. I've always used Ettore soft. But I keep hearing people say that hard rubber is better.
    Which rubber have you found to do the best job?

    I use hard rubber for downstairs and upstairs (when up ladder) but if im using wagtail on a pole for tricky to get to windows i use soft (seems a bit easier to blade off when doing pole work)
    Ettore rubbers aint bad just dont use pulex soft there ****! but if your not using pole then go for hard rubbers, more durable mate

    soft all year round for me,

    @adyspurs, how are you too quick for soft? a soft rubber with a light touch will be quicker then a hard rubber with heavy hands
