The new channel arrived this morning. The metal channel is the same except for a notch in the middle and the writing. The back of the end clips are tighter to the rubber to better hold it in plac

Well the nice people at Moerman are sending me a channel as a prize in a competition they ran. 😎

Spent a little time cleaning and re-cleaning my back doors this evening, happy to say the channel works fine, the end clips are good, zero detailing is still a reality. Blue rubber, not there yet

I couldn't really see much difference in their promo between it and the 2.0. Usual buzzwords about redesign/patented etc but not much else. Also I have used their blue rubber and imo it's nowhere in the same bracket as the green unger.

Can't get on with a moerman with the blue rubber at all. I only use unger pro soft. I havent tried the green rubber yet.

Jesus Christ the only difference I see is the blue rubber in it 🤣

The end clips are different not sure how different though 😉

As I understand it the new end clips hold the rubber more firmly which is a good thing except if you favour Ettore rubber which is a bit thicker.

The bit that worries me is that they are supposed to put less pressure on the end of the rubber which might be a step backward?

I have a 10" 2.0 so when my new channel arrives I can do a direct comparison between the two.

The back of the end clips are tighter to the rubber to better hold it in place. The front of the clip  looks like it is slightly less angled than the 2.0.

Does it work? Too early to say really, I have tried it on a couple of windows with not instantly great results but maybe the rubber needs bedding in? Will test more tomorrow.

Blue rubber, not there yet, maybe it's a bit too cold? The black rubber seems to have the edge but that has already been used a few times.

Unger green rubber imo is by far the best on the market followed by Ettore master rubber, that blue moerman rubber is awful.  Pulls and drags across the glass.

I run with Ettore in all my channels for years, a very reliable rubber.

Brilliant rubber so smooth. Unger Green though has surpassed them imo, not only does it have the same smooth glide over the glass but it's so durable so you get that longevity. Hoping they will release more sizes though.

Unger rubber is good, but reliability from batch to batch is inconsistent imo.

My use case scenario is that I only squeegy a handful of windows each month, five of them using a pole. The Excelerator/Liquidator combination has been a revelation but I do need a rubber that is ready to go out of the box, it could take me months to switch on a piece of rubber.

Next time I order some acid I will order some Unger green & some Ettore to test.

FYI I used both Fairy & Squeeze Deluxe in my trials, I found that Fairy produces more suds but Squeeze Deluxe had more slip.

Wash up soap is all you need the slip is great and cheap as chips.

Here stateside "Dawn" is the best wash up soap imo. 10 years it's never let me down 😉

I think Dawn is the same as UK Fairy but different colour. They are both made by Procter & Gamble.
