    Everybody has there squeegee that they use.

    Why do you use the one you have advantages/disadvantages.

    What could be done to improve that particular squeegee etc.

    I use the Unger ErgoTex 'cause I've always used it. I've tried Ettore and to me they suck.

    I can't think of anything they could do to make ErgoTec better.

    It's handle is oddly shaped, it's angle from handle to blade is awful and requires more effort. It's uncomfy.

    What you just descibed angle to the blade is the problem with the wagtail as well.

    Stainless Unger ones, they work well but a bit on heavy side and cold in winter. Looks like an ergotec next but I do keep pondering on the idea of trying a Sorbo one as well.

    The angle from the handle to the blade is not the problem.
    Just because a particular squeegee doesn't work for for one person, that same squeegee will be OK for some-one else.
    I use Unger Ergotec Handles and different types of Wagtail Handle....don't have a problem with using either.

    It's not a fualt of the items being used or the person using it....we are all different, and have different style's/technique's of working compared to each other.
