    With all this talk of the Masterbater.... oops sorry, Liquidator, I figured I'd change the subject a little as I've not seen anyone make mention of these on this forum. I took delivery of an Unger Ergotec XL today. I've always been keen on the ungers but found the handles way too small for me. This is not too bad on the smaller blades but I couldnt use it on a 16 or 18 as it didnt have enough leverage. So the XL model is perfect, and I'll be buying a bulk pack of unger soft too as I'm shying away from the hard stuff too. They say change is as good as a rest. Using it today, I think this is going to replace my Ettore as my main squeegee for a little while, or at least until the 'Liquidator 2' comes out.:D

    Check out the pic for comparison:

    I bought the red fire blade bundles and the fireblade rubber very impressed it lasts much longer than unger and pulex Which after a few days I use to change the firblade rubber never wears On the edges or lines lasts weeks

    I will have a look at those handles
    I have the same problem using my 18 with an ergotec handle..looks and feels out of place as it's small

    I'm impressed so far, I think I already prefer it to my Ettore. The channels are a lot more forgiving too as the are swept up a lot more then ettores. And they feel a bit lighter too which is a bonus.

    I've heard nothing but good things about that rubber but never got round to ordering any. If I ever place an order with WCW I'll buy a pack. I quite like the look of the red gear too.

    I was against coloured rubber from experience
    Then i saw waggas vid where he thinks that red stuff is excellent
    Gotta be worth a try

    I must admit that I'm really tempted to buy some of the green to see just how Sh*t it is. :D
