    I been using eettore squeegee for a long time now and sometime use the wagtail squeegee every now and again.

    I want to get myself a new squeegee which is good for detail round the edge of the windows.

    I got a quite a few bungalows to clean next week in Twickenham so recommended me a good one that I can order this week.

    Ta dave


    PS I know you can dogear the wagtail, I don't want to do that.

    I think for the edges (if thats what you mean), technique is the most important aspect, but I'm playing with the idea of modding my channel differently to the popular dogear. Daveyboy on here posted a link for it but I can't remember what its called.

    I wouldn't bother doing anything to your channel if I were you, I tried it once on my spare ettore channel years ago and **** it right up.

    Stick with your Wagtails Dave....once you've mastered the technique there's no going back :thumbsup:.

    As for 'dogearing'......all you need to do is to stiffen the ends of the rubber, you can do this with ....cable ties...paper-clips....Unger green clips etc etc.
