I ve dropped fans in the middle of summer and had carpet dries to the touch in an hour.

My pc ti was 12 flow, my slot devastator 8 flow.

So there maybe a little more recovery with a holed glide.

Doesn't count

All opinions must be factually backed with a BD Delmhorst with batteries no less than 6 hours old, 2100 moisture meter with pins inserted through fibers, backing, pad and 1/16" of subfloor in 19 random locations per every square foot of test carpet.

well as someone who has monitored moisture in carpet with a meter on thousands of jobs "dry to the touch" is misleading.....in most cases you have simply evaporated faster than the water is wicking up....it's still wet

I use to leave fans here, IF they agreed to bring them to my house when ( they think) its dry.

9 out of 10 times the fans came back the same day.

I dont bother anymore.

I found that people confuse cold carpet with wet carpet. So now I tell them to not cornfuse the two.

I left 3 fans on a piss job senior group home.

Two hours later I went back. nurse jackoff, unplugged two because old jack didn't like the noise.

On another note concerning Matt's wand, the triangle shape, with its hidden/ surrounded jets is extremely handy for getting underneath all sorts of furniture and obstacles.

The old Bently almost pulled it off, but the jets were too far back, and soaked things.

Put your fingertips into the carpet and not rely on the palm or back of hand test..

What prespray is best?….? How heavy did you pre-spray..

Even Frank Perez in CA with his PowerClean Genesis unit did an emulsifier only cleaning @600psi with 240-260degree temps and bone dry in 15mins doing the pants kneeling test.. While it was eye opening for me, you could smell the Neptune hose breaking down..

So let’s get this thread back on track and did Matt ever fix his “banana glide” on his new wand?

Banana would imply that I sent him a curved glide..

Ive sold hundreds of the same design for the 12" & 14" WPs with no fruit factors....

You're welcome for me sending you that awesome picture in our text conversation that i was trying to have with you, sending you compliments as well, the day you were a brat dick, playing in your sandbox

I fixed it last night. I put the matter in my own hands, discovered the outside internal slots were too far out to the edge (keep in mind, this head is only 11.5"), which caused the curve when you pushed it in to fit it. So I cut those out and it now sits perfectly aligned with the lips straight, not curved.

So since this was your old design that you didn't make Mike, it might be good to take a look at one you have and experiment with it and see how much better it fits with those two outside inserts cut out. But what do I know? I've got work to do.

I have the SAME Glide on my 530 Matt.
Its fine.
Leaks are a good thing.

But taking away the walls between the bridges solves a problem that you're not noticing, yet.


Ive sold six of those in the last two weeks with no complaints.


Portable guys obsess on this stuff. Which they should.

You have air to spare on the other hand.

I put the glide on, the same way Trip did in his video on his thread. This isn't rocket science.

Concerning the generous discount you volunteered to me on that wand which I thanked you for, I thought you were looking for feedback in return, which is why I took the time and sent the detailed, accurate pictures and positive feedback with the other concerns, which you were not at all willing to accept.

Leaking is not good on a glide. You need all the suction coming from the slots for maximum water recovery, unless you're cleaning a hard surface (the purpose of the brushes on your hard surface glide) to prevent real lockdown.

I've used both methods and no air leak is better.

Do you realize you’re wasting your time?

Now to set matters straight on me not knowing what I'm talking about by not giving enough time on new tools:
1. My inaccuracy on using the Zipper in the past: I was wrong. It was set up the wrong way and I didn't have enough big jobs to appreciate the benefit of using it and bought another one and I"m glad I did. I'll admit when I'm wrong. But I remember you getting in a argument with Erik and out of spite, you recommended the fking bonzer which was entirely inaccurate on that POS
2. Sapphire upholstery tool: I'm still preferring the pmf internal jet because it cleans more aggressive. I bought another sapphire just for velvet and only use it on that type.

I do give tools a good chance

No Matt, I gave you $150 off to thank you for your activity here.
he likes to take credit for shit he doesn't do,
Can you give me two examples of that?

recommend? I'll stand by my statements. The Bonzer is easier to use.

Trip is using a SSTI14, which a baby could plug a glide into. Incomparable

You're wrong. Leaks assist lift.
