Care to take a guess, after looking at my best sellers in www.greenglides.com, how many of the wands are produced with perfect consistency?

Greenie's aunt and I were discussing the sad state of affairs today and could come up with only TWO.

Guess which they are...

I'd "guess" the injection molded plastic ones

..LT.A.

One, is the Evolution but not because of it's molded plastic head, rather it's aluminum mounting rail.

It hasn't changed since its inception.
The Sharpshooter will be using a Delran version soon. Their screw on design has too many variants.


The second wand is a bit of a joke, as it hasn't been around long enough to see a change in manufacturing, but because Joe Bristor is involved, I wont be surprised when hes forced to find another manufacturer, they will inadvertently change how the glide fits. Hopefully for the better. As it fits now, is yet another knock off of the (stupid) Prochem Titanium.
Luckily, Rob and Dang all did the same after Conway lead the way, and one Glide fits three different wands, yipee!

added to the SharpShooter/Trident wand page..

******This Glide can also fit the Trident wand from Smack/US Products. On older models you will need to cut out the center bridge and use small wood screws instead of the sheet metal screws. Please be aware that Trident wands had a few variations and to fit the SharpShooter Glide on to it will require lots of cutting, possible trimming, use of a heat gun, compressing the heck out of the foam gasket or possibly not using it, some cussing and possible relocation of the end screws, so buyer beware as modified Glides can not be returned. But it will be worth it...******​

The Trident wand was manufactured with a wider glide slot designed to improve wand recovery performance IMO and used with SMAK portable units. When they were attached to a truckmount they stuck to the floor. GG turned this economy wand into a high performance tool.
