    I saw one of these in a test and I think I want one. On Mike's Youtube test video there was an Orange and blue one. I really liked the look of that. I did an online search and I can't seem to come up with anything. Is there a website where I can order one directly?
    Currently I have a Prochem Quad. I need something lighter. I want to stay with a 12" head and a 1 3/4 " or a 2 " tube. Also I want a Teflon hybrid glide on it. Another one I found is the PMF Mach 12 TI, it also seems interesting to me.
    I am 6'2 and the quad seems like it is the right length for me.
    I do like my Quad a lot , but around 1700 for the titanium model???
    Are there any other 12" TI wands with a 2" tube that I might not be aware of?

    Get the Dang.

    Well unless it bothers you that the paint peels off. Or that the head flops around loosely like a fish.

    After all it's only money...and you can't take with you. :winky:

    The Dang is an $800 to $1000 wand that won't last two years.

    It's only money. You make a big fookin mistake, so what. Look at how much you saved over buying a quality tool. :eekk:

    Not to be confused with pigsnot. He is a tool also but not quality. :winky:

    I have a mach 12 with the 1.5 inch tube, titanium version. Awesome wand, great airflow, adjustable jet angle. The 2 in will be even better.

    I went from the prochem quad to the mach15 and I love it. I'm 6,5 and it feels perfect for me. I also have the westpak 12" with a slotted glide, and it's allot better than the prochem quad. I suggest getting the mach15, due to how much faster my jobs are with that extra 3" of width. I never thought it would amount to much, but it really does. I used a mach12 for over a year also, and it can't beat a mach15

    at my supplier I closely inspected and weighed the WP 12"x2" 4jet. I didn't know or remember my local dis. had them. 8.5lbs with GG as compared to my stainless WP 14"x2" 11.5lbs. 3lb difference and $775.00. The welding is adequate(ish). Would it kill you guys at WP to dab a little filler on your tack welds? And would it kill you to pick up yer phone? The tread taps on the jet bar aren't dead on 90 degrees, tapped by hand? Check valve extenders, is that the norm these days? Looks like another component to foul with age/heat. I'd trade all the polishing for craftsmanship. Will my joints notice a 3lb difference?, I'll have pay to find out...

    Just curious Ron. How many times have you actually changed the jet's angle?
    And why?

    once I'm sure, PMF usually has it wrong.

    Just once. When it came I found it was spraying a little too high for my liking. I have adjusted it so it hits the carpet just in front of the vacuum lips. It hits at an angle instead of spraying straight down like an aw29

    We try to control the weld quality as best as we can, but as Mike said, that's one of the downfalls of doing business in China.

    Not sure when you were trying to call, but there are only 3 of us in the office so might go unanswered now and then. Just leave a message if you can and we'll get back with you soon. If you want to get a hold of me direct you can PM me and I'll get you my cell.
