    I've seen a few bits and pieces about razr red facelift rubber and seems good, how good is it and what's it like in the liquidator

    I've got some razrblade red rubber. It's ok but I still like Unger hard the best.

    iv been using Moerman soft the last few years and really rate it. theres me and my 3 lads we are really caning the old moerman. if you employ you need a rubber that is "a man for all seasons" by that i mean a budgetty rubber that anyone can use at anytime of year . i trialled a few makes before settling on moer soft .

    worst i ever used was Unger soft, so many lines on the leading edge i wonder if theres a disgruntled employee at Unger who gets a thrill out of ruining the rubber stock and seeing sales plummet makes him/her smile! mr.unger if you happen to read this it may pay you to set up cctv in the rubber plant, itll be the most unlikely suspect [iv watched no end of forensic detectives on tv and usually someone close to home does the dirty]

    Whereas i have never once put a moerman rubber in and found its got a nick in it [ which happened loads of times with other makes used prior to my moer changeover ]

    Moerman should be good as they have been making their own rubber for over 130 years for floor squeegees..would be worrying if they couldn't make a decent bit of rubber by now

    I've always used unger soft and usually really good but in liquidator I seem to always get arched lines even when i've tried all different techniques so thought I'd try something different
