So I found out that both of my shoulders are shot may need surgery in one of them
So I'm thinking of trying a push pull style wand.
I had a bonzer it was stolen lol I did like it but wasn't in love didn't get to try it very much.
Never have touched a zipper
I really like the look of the Bentley pro
so those are the ones that I know of to choose from if anybody would like to chime in I would greatly appreciate it

I did some side by side testing with a bonzer and devastator. I didnt mind using the bonzer, and I wanted to like it. But with my small truckmount the wand pulled more water, and literally 4 times the sand out of the carpet where I was cleaning. It was easy to duplicate the test over and over again. They were vacation rentals at a golf course resort. I used a disposable filter to trap the sand. The difference was obvious with my equipment. I think with more vacuum I would use a bonzer or zipper.

Response should be overwhelming, I believe that over 90% of carpet cleaners are suffering from carpet cleaning related conditions, such as joints, shoulders problems. I too, belong to that category . It started with right shoulder years ago and it had nothing to do with a carpet cleaning, still condition worsened over the years. I kind of wish, my Bonzer was stolen instead. Truth to be told, I'm not a big fan. Between 2 regular (2 jet, 6 jet, both gun type trigger) wands, Bonzer and CX-15 I had acquired recently, I should know, what tool is best for me. For obvious reasons I've chosen 2 jet. It's under 8 lbs.,solid built, with a slotted teflon glide. Water recovery is not the greatest, but I can outweigh it with use of air movers. This scenario applies exclusively to a worn, matted down cgd carpeting, where 6 jet wand is locking down on carpet. It's true that Bonzer retains heat much better than any other wand I tried so far. Also, it is true that Bonzer weighs almost 27lbs and because of complicated concept of vacuum relief, glides are not very helpful. I use it almost every day, but only partially , when I need to attack really trashed cgd. I've heard many good things about Bentley , but only from 2 people and their monthly workload I can easily fit in one week( about 35 K sqf), residential accounts not included. So yes, I would like to know which wand glides effortlessly on any carpet , because I didn't find one as of yet.

Definitely try something out before you pay out several hundred dollars. For commercial accounts, larger home, places with plenty of space, I like the CX-15. For smaller rooms, I like the Hydro-Force swivel wand with the Teflon glides - https://interlinksupply.com/index.php?item_num=1603-3348

The Soft Touch valve is also important for the ergonomics of the hand.

There is a gentlemen in the midwest who had similar problems and developed his own ergo wand. Senior moment, I don't recall the name right now.
