    Very good brush head but i smashed the **** out of the wooden frames today you have to be soo careful with using the brush head it seems like it needs more hairs on it especially on both sides bit of a shame really as its a really good brush head i hope Richard takes note or he might already know .

    I know what you mean about the stock, I think I may glue a bit of foam on the bottom and sides although I haven't had any need to yet, but think if I lost control could do damage. No so sure about the bristles. I have a gardiner sill brush which I don't think has half as many bristles and loses one nearly every day but still has enough to do the job a year on. The tecbuk hasn't lost one yet.

    Hi Neil,
    Comments noted; I have been using the brushes for about 3 years, give it a bit more time; go easy, and let the brushes bristles do the work you will soon get into a new cleaning habit.

    I cleaned 5 jobs today in and out , and i noticed that the brush gets right into the corners of the window and cleans the window perfect and i must say i feel very confident in using the tecbuk, I'm not slating the brush head at all Its just my first thought from using it for the first time, i will try and be a bit more careful with it so it doesn't bang the frames but if it keeps doing it i will have to put some sort of sponge on the corners . Other than that its great.

    Hi Neil,
    It’s good to hear you already feel very confident with the brushes cleaning abilities after only a very short period of time.

    I always move the brush as fast as I can on the glass when cleaning, as I start to clean alongside the window frames I have gotten into a habit of being more controlled with the brush, positioning or placing the brush with less pressure/force, so if it does hit a soft frame no damage is caused. Upvc frames can often get knocked; these types of frames won’t be damage by the brush, bash away if you are in a mad rush.

    I personally use the most rigid poles; beside the other benefits to cleaning these poles provide you do have more control over the brush with the pole having less whip and flex.

    Richard

    I agree Richard, from I bought my carbon fibre slx I have found controlling the brush is so so much easier, and the "bashing" is reduced.. I had the same issue with my superlite brushes when I first started and was using the carbon mix clx pole..

    The composite poles are ok for starting off, but ill never buy another one. I never thought there would be much difference between composite and full carbon fibre.. Yesterday I needed my clx 27 to reach just 4 windows.. I had already done a few 100 windows with the slx, as soon as I started with the clx, wow I nearly put the brush through the wall!!, it whips so much and really with the clx I cant work as fast and as controlled as i now want...

    Iv been cleaned wfp now for approx 8 months... Now I'm really getting into the swing of things, with technique and confidence, I'm now flying through the windows, I'm getting compliments on the results and the system, and I'm enjoying work so much better!!

    My aquadapter arrived yesterday, it's now wrapped up and under the tree..

    So after new year I will have the perfect pole set up... Slx 22... Aquadapter... Tecbuk brush....
