    first off, thanks for the welcome backs.
    It's good to virtualSee all my friends again

    so what's the latest board de jour wonders currently running?

    if you're not aware of what "board de jour" fads/wonders are, I'll list some examples from the past ;
    Kunkle (sp?) vac relief valves
    360, 360i, 360XL, 360E-I-E-i-Oh
    then the other roto extractor from Safire took De Jour status
    Judson TMs
    JudsonJuice
    Zipper

    Boards before this one going WAY back;
    Rodorie Drymaster
    Recoil pordy
    OP machine de jour

    etc, etc, etc


    Not saying anything of those things were bad, or not useful, just that the vast majority never lived up to their "larger than life" pack following hype/popularity

    Only a couple/few I can recall being "genuinely" stellar

    Teflon glides being one... with caveat..
    That being you actually use quality prespray in sufficient quality and/or use mechanical agitation...
    (cause glides don't clean as deep/well)
    and if you're a soap dispensing "wand scrubber" like many outfits large and small, you'll work harder for sure without glide, but you'll get carpets cleaner/faster without one


    and Bridgepoint powder Flex
    That was the last juice I recall that lived up to the de jour hype


    so what's all the rage these dayz?
    Mikey's new love affair with 1.5" Ti wand? (or will become the "the chit" in a few months?)
    Saiger Sauce?

    so what's "trending" these days here?
    or has the place been watered down by ad dollar butt-schmoozing and "everything is great" and there are no "clear" de jour faves anymore?

    The current rage is: Under-powered slide ins and under-sized wands.
    Pretty much the complete opposite of what it was when this BB started :winky:

    Mike's negotiating the return of War Monger. Stay tuned.

    The latest is PEM (production enhancing music.)
    Put it on when you work and you can easily add three four more jobs a day.

    Shark vacuums are becoming the rage. Swivel head, easy to clean, enough power to suck start a volkswagon. And reasonably priced. Get you one.

    Sharks were the rage 4 years ago when there were just two models.

    They rate pretty well with consumer's reports. Ahead of the dysons.

    But they are not professional looking to be used in a customer's home.

    I like to stay a few years behind on technology. Heck I just upgraded to a smartphone 2 years ago.
