    The evolution wand is the best in my opinion. I have bought 3 of them now.

    I also prefer the evolution wand if you are looking for a 1.5 inch wand. Yes I have tried other wands. I actually keep 4 different wands in my van.

    Evolution wand would be my pick for the worst wand ever made.

    Same here. The whole bottom manifold fell off mine the last time I used it. Was only a year old

    I guess for 1 1/2" it's ok but the 2" wands had heat issues and I didn't like the angle

    Prochem 11" quad is hard to beat for a smaller TM or portable.
    Just one of the most reliable, effective, well designed rigid wands in history

    You could adapt the end but you'd be wise to nix all 1.5 and switch to 2"..
    Huge difference in CFM with 2".. Especially on runs longer than 50'
