    It's a personal choice what you use but they say hard rubber is better on hot glass in summer months

    I do like softer rubber most, personally i am a Big fan of Sorbo and their rubber. If you are new to trad i would say try sorbochannels/handles it is very easy to Use for a beginner​

    I did buy some squeegees but the the rubber on them just leaves streaks and look bendy could I just buy decent rubbers and use the same squeegees that I already bought? Thanks for all the advice
