why dont they make a 1 3/4 inch tapered to 2 inch so you dont need a whip hose?

Oh, they did that with the Prochem Trijet wand but its no longer available. Maybe Prochem was ahead of their time on that one?

Wasn't Prochem's 4 jet like that too? I like the way Sapphire made the connector on their upholstery tool so it's doesn't matter if I want to connect a 1 1/2 or a 2 inch to it. It's ready for either one and I find that pretty handy. I do use about a 6 ft. whip and probably will until I retire. I tried the 2 inch hose to the tool thing and just hate it even though I can see some slight advantage to it.

I have a CMP-14 that is 1 3/4' with a 2' inch flair.

Takes 2" hose on the outside and 1 1/2" hose on the inside.

I always thought the 1st. manufacturer that would make a good quality 1 3/4" wand and get a hose manufacture to make 1 3/4" hose for them would make a killing.

That would end which is better to the wand? 1 1/2" or 2"
