    You want the adjustable if it’s the jets they’re talking about

    If the PMF manifolds are set to shear at the back of the glide that’s better.

    Adjustable I set once and have never moved unless they came loose.

    The other thought is if you have employees using it the PMF might wear better.

    I don't want to beat a dead horse but...
    I was saying that the wand was in incredible condition, but the tube had a few scratches on it. No big deal for me. Tony also told me that he might repaint the wand head if it needed it. I asked him about the swivel and the different versions and he told me that he would put on a new ver 3. I was almost going to pull the trigger on a Mach 12 wand. But the Tony Dang wand for some reason appealed to me from when I first saw it. Probably because I'm a bit of a tinkerer ( I'm a bass player and almost all my basses are heavily modified) I have often thought about of ways to improve the normal wand but I don't have any metal working skills or connections in that field. And Tony's wand was just different and innovative enough for me to like it.
    I guess Tony could have sold this wand to me as a floor model, a second or something like that for more money, but he didn't. There must be reasons that I'm not aware of why Tony is so disliked on this forum but when somebody gets treated unfairly I tend to speak up.. Tony isn't super friendly on the phone or with his texts, he doesn't seem like a warm lovable guy, but he does what he says he' going to do. So as far as I'm concerned he seems to be a straight up guy and I would buy from him again.

    Glad you got a great deal hope it works out for you!

    Mikes been given several wands by Tony.

    He’s shared his honest feeling about the wands.

    They get loose and sloppy in the head for a 1k wand it’s an awful lot to have problems with in 6 months to a year.

    That said Mikes guys love them.

    I also now a guy whose sold over 10 in the San Fernando Valley whose complained of the quality.

    I have a guy who has a different dang wand every month.

    He prefers his with a little sloppiness in his head.

    And his was loose until he got the new one.

    He’s all over Facebook swears up and down Tony’s great.

    As long as he backs his product and helps out people who have problems. I have no issues with him.

    I’m just glad I got my Devastator wand it’s great a year in operation doing 4 jobs a day, 5 days a week.

    I'll definitely let you guys know if the thing falls apart on me prematurely. I'm the only one using it and I'm pretty careful with my tools. I know that the wand needs to be lubed regularly and I'll stay up on that.Hopefully that will keep the swivel from getting sloppy.

    Okay Radar,

    The two wands are the same except for the manifolds as you can see.

    What is the difference between the two manifolds.
    The Red white in Blue setup has on the fly shear adjustment, now some feedback has come back and some guys have said that the shear is not needed for them, and the techs don't need them. I personally like them because I can get my jets hitting so close to the glide that it acts almost like the new upholstery tools.
    I can set the wand down and trigger and the wand will pull the water right up the wand through all the carpet fibers without moving the wand, I have actually had very good results flushing out some filtration lines with this method. I can also adjust then to have more direct impact on a small tile entry way, instead of having to go out and get my tile wand,
    I made these to give the operator every possible adjustment that he would want.

    The PMF manifolds were made to help cut some of the cost because there in not as much labor in making them, They took my manifolds and basically matched the angles on the ones they make for us. So the shear is set to impact about 3/8" behind the glide, you cant adjust on the fly, but you CAN give them a little tweak or bend to get them to hit a little closer to the glide.

    You DO STILL get side to side adjustment, some guys like a little over spray, some like it at the edge, some like it a little inside the glide path, and the PMF manifolds will still give you that ability.

    I will say the rigid manifolds will be less FINICKY meaning you set and that's it, the RWB set up do need to be re-tightened, I think that this has to do with the solution line strap and where it is located on the wand tube, possibly IDK the strap on my wand is pretty high up so the solution line as a whole can move as the wand is swiveled, if the hold down strap is down low to the "T" I think it puts a little more pressure on the lock nut on the manifolds but this is just a guess still.

    Hope that helps a little.
