    I totally get that too. I started out with WFP but I still find myself choosing trad, as long as I can reach the windows lol and reason I look forwards to insides. There's just something innately more satisfying about getting up close and personal and tradding with your soap and blade than just spraying water over some glass :thumbsup:

    Just look at people like wagga and polz
    Both have wfp and both choose to trad also
    Sometimes it's easier at certain houses that i know the frames are clean to just get my harris pole and wagulator out and speed fan the tops
    Jobs a good un and doing the bottoms before you know it
