    I was thinking of trying out a wagtail flipper, and when I had a look online, I saw that there were two different versions. I can't seem to find anywhere that says what the difference are, so who here knows what's different between the two of them?

    Orbital Aluminium Flipper

    Slimline Flipper

    These images are from wagtails website, though if you look on WCW's website, the images look the same, just to confuse things even more for me:

    the top wagtails swivel is directly connected to your blade holder. and lower wagtail has a fixed bracket and disc which ya handle/swivel connect to
    the top wagtail therefore has handle/swivel higher up so when ya squeegeeing at bottom of window allows scrubbing pad to keep out of the way better
    think the top model is newer model combi and can change flipper pad for high windows but the pads are small for this so people make bigger pads themselves and fit them
