    I was wondering what you guys think of the Unger Ergotec Ninja squeegee? I'm thinking of buying one this week.

    Heavy, bulky and cant be dog-eared. Marketing junk thats all it is.

    I bought one last week for the fact I want a larger squeegee channel for a few of my regular jobs but I'm not really impressed. I'd rather Unger work on the Ergotec design and make it more sturdy.

    The point i am trying to make is you dont have to dogear at all, and still be quick!

    have a look at the angles to which you go across the tops of windows! now use the same angles going down the sides of the windows as well, this angle going down the left side / and this angle going down the right side \ learn this method and you will find there is no need to dogear!

    Tried all sorts of techniques. I can get it right on some windows. It all depends on the type. Some times I have to switch techniques to get it done right. Now this becomes a pain having to change technique for different style and types of window. I find it for easyer to have 1 way of going it for every window.
