    I am just curious to find what squeegee rubber people find best for them. I know a lot of people of have certain preferences so just curious to see if a certain one is more popular. Thanks

    I like wagtail rubber a lot, but its pricey. Unger and ettore are nice too. I find the channell and the stiffness of the rubber makes more of a noticeable difference then the brand though.

    Ettore seems to be the best and most reliable and longer lasting

    Don't bother with this red and green and blue rubbers you see on ebay and other sites I've found there just a gimmic rubber and usually totally unusable

    I have used Pulex before which i got on with quite well was also cheap. Now i use soft Unger and never had a problem with it. I have seen the green rubber from Unger but never tried it but glad i haven't now.

    Matt i bought 2 of the longest strips of unger green
    I only use it for my top opener squeegee now as it is so small any rubber seems to work as can get more pressure on it
