    As I'm only doing big shop fronts and car showrooms etc, I'm thinking I need a bigger squeegy than my Unger 18".

    Any thoughts on what I should go for...Ninja...Sorbo etc.

    How big is too big.....is it, the larger the squeegy, the harder they are to use....or wouldn't that matter on such large windows.

    Must be a swivel handle aswell.

    I find my 18" is hard enough to use never mind even wider and on a swivel.

    It's got to be Sorbo get a 30 to start, don't expect to fan with it though, keep to straight pulls down or across, they really do speed things up. Get a big swivel applicator as well. Watch Sorbos videos on you tube or on his web site.

    I use an unger 22" S channel in an ergotec handle - works pretty well and I can fan with it. Takes a bit of getting used to but is wicked for big shop windows. Also wayyy cheaper than sorbo or ninja. I'd say go for that combo to start off - should cost you less than a tenner from wintecs.co.uk and if you like you can buy a ninja, if you think it's poo then at least you havent wasted a lot and you've got a length of channel you can cut down to other sizes. For instance, I like using the 22", my friend who I work with sometimes hates it, and just uses a 12" on everything..
