However it sounds less like the tool and more of a grooming issue.
Sometimes you can't "groom out" issues made by an improper, glide, airflow.
Viscose is, soft, no twist,abused,worse when wet........
They need to make a glide with even airflow across the ENTIRE Vac/Airflow slot.
A glide with a slot to get "crustsies/lint" from Baseboards does not apply for rugs, ugh!
This is also an issue with Paki Bokhara's.
Can't someone

Use a ZIPPER instead of a wand.

MEH!
If you're just "pixie" dust cleaning maybe,but the Zipper is not easier to control in this situation.
One direction working with the nap a wand is more effective.
The PMF was recommended and as I said I bought 2 glides both streaked like no other.
They weren't dang glides either.

Hook a wand with this Glide to a well formulated extractor and voila!


Notice it's round profile and two piece design effectively removing any Bridge support they are a custom one-off option available through pmf for their Mach Wands and most likely the 802 which is a darn good wand as well.

I've told Tom Conway he should use this design on his...

Just trigger it one way and vacuum (if needed) and groom. Try it, I think you have much more control than a scrub wand using a ZIPPER.

I bought what I was told was the best wand for JUST extraction.
PMF2051, 2 or 3 12"width 2" hose .
Whats the part number for this glide.
Or should I just call them? Who do I ask for?
