    we have 2 poles which get swapped around between us, theres an ultimate medium on 1 and just put an extreme stiff on the other, the ultimate feels better on the glass but the extreme is quicker for spider webs etc & of course much lighter but like paul1 i change my mind a lot

    Ultimate flocked and Ultimate Medium soft.
    I have an Exline Evo-Lite which is also a cracking brush (love the color) but I find the bristles a little long for most of my work. The Ultimates get round the frames better but are not so good on ledges unless you angle them over with the angle adapter. Most of the time though I just step back and raise the pole to change the angle if need be.

    I love the ultimate flock that I got on your recommendation, now you have used both the flockedwhats your thoughts on the medium soft and what do you prefer, as noticed today my flocked brush got clogged up a fair bit was working in the sticks today so plenty of dead leaves etc.

    is a flocked brush suitable for regular everyday cleaning ? I always assuned had to be a stiffer bristle like the mediums I use currently? using a superlite at moment find the bristles too long anyone tried the new compact superlite? tried the soft supreme before but didn't last me two minutes, cheers all
