    Last time I bought a Wagtail it was yellow. I liked that one.

    I have a lot and I do mean a lot of retail glass to do (a shopping center) short poles and hand held.

    What is the current recommendation for a wagtail for this? My old yellow one was perfect for this type of stuff.

    I need a straight to the packet option. I don't want to mess about 'modding' one.

    Cheers.

    If you were happy with the yellow one these guys still have some stock plus yellow pads...you'll have to enquire whether they've also got the white snap retaining clips... http://www.cleaningspot.co.uk/cgi-b...arch.y=0&search=ACTION&page=search&PR=-1&TB=A
    If you want to get a similar feel with something new...ish I'd recommend the slimline flipper.

    id say go for an 18 inch slimline that will be big enough to cut the big glass down in no time

    few yrs ago there was a 36 inch yellow , i had one , this was very good on big glass not sure if they still sell them in the uk could likely get one direct from Australia or fit a big channel of a different make to the slimline

    14" slimline flipper
    Go too big and issues on not 100% flat glass with standard channels
    14" on a pole is quick even on big glass

    Could always put a liquidator channel in it:whistle:

    So is the consensus that it should be a 14 inch Slimline for short poles for large frame-less panes of glass.
