    Smurf posted a good clip the other day about a man with a bent nozzle...:confused:

    I have a bent one and I don't like it. I've since straightened it a bit like the vid shows but yet to see the difference in feel until I get another pressure wash job. If I had the choice when I bought (the jetmac advert showed a straight nozzle- avoid them) then I would have gone for straight.

    I use straight, tends to make the spray go away from your feet better!

    If you use a standard tip then a straight lance - if you use a heavier turbo nozzle then a bent one, as the angle of the water lifts the end of the lance & makes it feel almost weightless - - after a few hours working you'll notice a massive difference in how tired your arms are!
