    I thinks it's a 50:50 thing. You either get on with them in week 1 or never get on with them

    I did tell you when you first talked about getting one that they take a while to get used to them. Best start with a normal squeegee.

    I think the more experienced window cleaner who has been using a fixed squeegy for many years, will find it harder to adjust their technique to use a Wagtail.
    I've only been window cleaning 6/7 months, I use Unger squeegy's and my Wagtails with no problems at-all.....whereas, my workmates who've been window cleaning for years with fixed squeegy's, find it a lot harder to adjust their technique.

    I use my Wagtails the most compared to my Ungers, but for me.... it's not all about speed, it's more about ease of use for me.
