Comon guya. Is Tony's wand all that much better then Robs???
FOR ALMOST A GRAND DIFFERENCE??? BOTH HAVE SIGHT GLASS WINDOWS. AND ROBS IS PRETTY DAM NICE!!!
SPEAK UP AMD GIVE ME THE PROS AND CONS PLEASE!!!
Rob OFFERS ALOT!! And his is wayyyy more affordable
The sight glass is HUGE!!!
I have it on my pmf upholstery tool. And it does surprise me at times. More dirty water to extract that you thought was gone!!!

First of all, Tony had a stroke and isnt building wands. Tom does build wands, and you already asked this question has been covered lately last time you asked.

My mistake. Good to hear he is back at it. I thought I had read he was having health troubles but I could have been mistaken.

I dont want one of Tom's wands. Period! And I did bot get the answer I wanted before. So I'm posting it again. Any law against it?

Please, people who have owned both only need to comment or people with real experience.
I dont need opinions. I want a solid sight glass, swivel wand that will last a long time.
Its alot of money for a wand with features that dont really make you any more money. It's just nice features that snake life easier....

I thought Toms had a view window but they won’t let me get near it. Anyways I’m sure his wand is good and worth buying.

Never asked him. My reference is at conventions they are cold and standoffish.

Yessir. Robs comes with more features and is a much more affordable price for sure.
Only difference I hear is Robs wand head is aluminum and the devastator is titanium.
Aluminum is lighter, just not as hard.
Swivel differences I'm not sure either. I hear both are very good.

The Devastator is made by Tom.

The aluminum is slightly heavier, harder and plants very nicely into the carpet interface. Swivels are same.

Rob,
The extra weight is there because its thicker right??? It needs to be because its aluminum. And the front plate is removable as well.
Well I'm not sure if the aluminum would ever really wear out. As its riding on a glide.

I have nothing but good things to say about my PMF Mach 12 titanium wand. It's really nice!
However I want a back up wand in 2" with a possible 14" head, sight glass and swivel.
