Default squeegee reviews..

Anyone every try any "specialty" squeegees?
I know Hobkins has the ergonomic squeegee, and i know Pocono Mtn has the powerstroke squeegee.
After printing for so long, my hands are shot. My fingers are also aching, the skin between the thumb and index finger is toward off from griping the squeegee so much. It sucks.

I was wondering if anyone has tryed any of those squeegees so you can tell me if they work before i spend a crazy amount of money for 1 squeegee like that.

thanks!

haha!
I just bought a new press last week.
I love my manuals, i dont have the patience for an auto, i worked in a fast paced shop with 2 autos.
I think its because all i ever do is print, i run my shop 9-5 then print for a local shop in a few towns next to mine 5:30-8

If your going to do alot of manual printing into the future...invest in good squeegees. I,ve ran several autos but still perfer manual myself. More control.
Keep in mind however, no matter how well the squeegee is designed, your fingers will still turn out like mine...ten stiff gutter spikes...37 years of abuse from printing on manuals.
Maybe try one squeegee for printing white since it is the worst ink to print. Then if you like it, invest in more.
