Flying Wing Ergonomic Squeegee

Postby printworks, ink. » Mon Aug 22, 2011 1:14 pm

Has anyone tried the Hopkins flying wing ergonomic squeegee? I have a ton of wrist issues and would love anything that could lessen the pain and fatigue that comes with a full day of printing. I do push stroke more than pull now and that has helped, but i'm ordering some squeegees and want some opinions about it before i lay down the cash money.

I bought one of those squeegees and honestly didn't like it. It was awkward for me to hold and didn't fit in my squeegee rack. I didn't use it for an entire print run so I don't really know if it helps with wrist problems, but I do know it feels really weird in my hands compared to a standard squeegee. I would say just keep doing push stokes rather than pulls... that's what I do! :D

Some of our guys love it and some hate it. It all depends on the printer.
