I had to take our older swivel wand off the truck for two days while I replace the 1/8the QCs..
The crew came back to the shop all passed off and threatened to use it leaking or otherwise if I was not done.
Looks like I need two on each truck. Our rigids never get used and the Zipper is their go to for big rectangularscreen
Tony's new wand works great but has a serious flaw in the swivel. The locking collar can not be removed once damaged and it damages easily. We'll keep using it until late a promised new design arrives in two weeks
Tom's old Swivel is still going strong with just a hint of play. I re-greased it over the weekend, which did not effect the play.
The mounting hardware and system fit the manifolds are it's weakness. Not a lifetime set up for sure.
If I were Tom, I'd be bringing a dozen of his new wand to Nashville, as I'm sure he'll sell them all.
Mark my words, in three years from now I predict:
-Swiveling will be the industry standard amongst the WWW crowd and possibly the franchises
-PMF will be assembling Tom's perfected Devestator
-Swivel adaptor kits for other wands will be available
-Every manufacturer will be offering one
-Marty will still be rigid and waiting on the fad to prove itself.
