Unger is reliable stuff but personally i like ettore squeegees better

If you wanted the best setup it would be a mix and match

Unger ninja boab

Moerman microfibre applicator

Ettore quick release handles

You can't go wrong with either brand, and like Dave says, a mix and match is fine. I prefer under squeegees these days, especially the Ergotec XL handle. And I prefer the under ninja sleeve to the moerman, but I like the moerman for poling big windows as it can hold a tonne of water. Everyone has there own preferences, and you will too once you have tried a few for yourself. At least all the gear is cheap.

That is the ergotec handle tenchy

Personally i would get the moerman tbar and blue microfibre applicator as it holds a lot of water without dripping it everywhere

Handy in the warmer months as you can do a lot of glass without it drying out

I use liquidator channels and moerman/ettore/unger handles but you can't go wrong with unger ergotec until you start to find what you prefer

This is what i am currently using when i trad..mostly insides nowadays but i did have a trad afternoon today on a bunch of houses with a huge alleyway to get to the back gates

Couldn't carry enough water on my trolley so i carried my little 7 rung triples round and tradded 5 houses in a terrace front and back

I enjoy jobs like that when i get a break from wfp

Good photo Daveyboy pics speak a thousand words another question what extension pole (length/s)do you use and do all the different handle fit that particular pole was going to order a pole/s as well for the hard to reach Windows.

 

Thanks

Wagtail, unger, moerman all fit the optiloc cone end on an unger pole

I use a harris decorators pole with unger adjustable angle and optiloc cone for top windows over conservatory etc and a length of plastic plumbing pipe wide enough to shove an optiloc cone in the end for lower windows just out of reach or over bushes etc

Ettore is a funny fit..I'm not sure as never used one but I'm sure the ettore poles must have different dimensions on the end piece
