    Hi all.

    Been using the original wagtail flipper for about 5 years now & it's ready for replacement. However, things have changed in this time & I'm faced with either a slimline flipper or pivotal control flipper. Is the only difference the pivot being either on the top or bottom? And also can I still use clips to hold the pads on with these? as I make my own pads for my flippers.

    Thanks.

    In short yes. The flipper I find is a little more forgiving and if you've been using the older blue disc version you will be purchasing for all intents and purposes the same tool. The PC used properly is very precise but an accurate touch is needed at all times. Also because handle is top mounted the pad set to flip up can be problematic. Flipping under is fine.

    Bear in mind that if you purchased a PC and didn't like it you can easily turn it into the original flipper with handle under ...

    I'm after that new no detailing squeegee when it comes out but want it to work the same as a wagtail.

    Do you know if those new no detailing channels will fit a wagtail daveyboy1 ?
