Actually I am thankful for them. They help me not become complacent. Innovation needs fire. My 2019 motivation level just went through the roof!Being in the public eye we leave ourselves open to all sorts of critism. Sometime though we can add a little fuel if we lose our own humility. Your a leader in many ways. Unfortunately we have to rise above even when under attack.
I am not opposed to the wands you make, I love new tools, I just have never held one in my hands to see what it feels like using a different wand.Actually I am thankful for them. They help me not become complacent. Innovation needs fire. My 2019 motivation level just went through the roof!
PS:I have often considered sending out thank you cards to them all.
Haters gonna hate brother its just what they do.After reading back through this I can see the little bully crowd can dish it out but can't take it. The ones that call others liars and cheats are the worst offenders. They let their emotions run their life and get stuck with little or no innovation. When you can't win on an even playing field all they have is name calling and deflection.
That's why I am moving more into manufacturing because they can't stand it when someone makes a better product and it out performs their closed mind production. I did it with the wand, I will do it with a CET tool. I don't get in a battle of words because I don't want to win the battle, I want to win the cleaning war.
I appreciate you trying to make a "logical" defense instead of resorting to your normal immature emotional tactics. Thank you. Now let's break down your "accusation". One, we know that you are tight with the competing forum owner and his advertiser the Zip. Couple that with despising my success and your lack thereof.I'm just calling out false advertising when I see it. A few years ago, the creator of the Bonzer did the same type of false advertising to boost sales of the stupid rotovac. Do any of you remember this picture attached? He did two things purposely wrong, he went too fast and or put tiny flow jets on the tool to make that aw29 (that most of you new guys use who do awesome work) make those streaks. He purposely and falsely attacked another tool to sell his products that isn't needed. And Rob is doing the exact same thing. I don't see anyone else getting those results on their zipper like was shown above.

Please don't play dumb. It's a whole clique that greases each other and you are just a blind pawn. That's good you found something you're happy with. Just because it fits you doens't mean it fits others regardless how much you want it to be so. I swung a wand for 30+ years with no glide for most of them and my shoulders are fine. Sounds like you had the wrong wand or technique. Plus I taught myself to be ambidextrous to spread out the work and my shoulder and arm muscles actually stayed lean and strong.I’m not “in tight” with the zipper guy. In fact, I tried to challenge the drag wand designs with my high flow mach15 for months. And after I bought my FIRST zipper, I hated it, told everyone how much I hated it and sold it
Come to figure out...it was set up wrong for my style of cleaning. The trigger was on the wrong side, and it had a hole glide in the front, instead of a slotted glide, and I didn’t like the talk boy version
So after my shoulder was acting up from my business DOUBLING since 2015, I had to do something else from swinging that wand. So I bought ANOTHER zipper that Erik changed to my needs. That’s one of the best tools I’ve invested in.
And you know better than to go over a commercial soiled carpet without a prespray. The bonzer just picked up what should’ve been extracted in the first time if proper chemistry was used.
If it walks like a duck, cry's like a duck and looks like a duck it's a lib.First off Matt isn't a liberal. Second he did at first hate the Zipper as he has stated, Third, the only one here arguing that has any gain financially in this little spat is you Rob Allen.
Now there is nothing wrong with making money. I just would like to see it done in a more honest and fair approach.

Who are we kidding, we are all in business to make money.
You guys preach a "more honest & fair" approach but do no, nada, zero testing to prove it otherwise making your points invalid. I have tested all machines openly, fairly and evenly. But facts don't matter with libs. I did zero of the cleaning in the last test and didn't even watch as I am too busy. All I did was report back and you guys can't handle that almost blowing blood vessels.
So I offered to take it a step further, opening my school, using my film crew and do side by side tests live and on camera with anyone. But what do I get? Crickets. No one wants to see their investment shown up by VLM or a lesser heavier unit. They can't handle it.
It's winter.So much drama. Feels like high school sometimes on here. I have a devastator 12 in wand and love it. I wasnt opposed to the tmf wand, but I live near Tom Conway and he offered the size I want soni went for it. If I was getting one for my techs I would go with the tmf or bentley. I spent several days recently cleaning dozens of identicle vacation cabins on a famous golf course. I had the devastator and a bonzer. I like using the bonzer. It held up fine. But it with my small truckmount even with short hose runs if left the carpet wetter. Even with a slow dry pass. And it also picked up about halfthe sand that the devastator did per unit. We measured. This doesn't mean that it wouldnt work better with a bigger truckmount. Just my observations.
