    The ergotec xl is a nice squeegee and will suit a big lad like you, unless you have jeremy beadle hands. Also the Ettore pro plus has a nice long handle and is well made. The ergotec xl is my favourite at the moment though as its nice and light and the blade is a lot more forgiving then the ettore.

    No big sopping applicator then to drip over custys floor
    Also less to carry about in the house

    Depends which one
    I have a new style slimline that only has a short grub screw which will grip the channel but not go through the channel
    It just needs packing with an old piece of rubber under the channel to take up the gap
    If the wagtail you have has a dent in the underside of the channel to grip the rubber then it doesn't need the screw to go through the channel
    If not then i daresay you need to drill the channel
    Post a pic if you can
