I too was at the similiar point as Sam a couple weeks ago.
However, since implementing the extra solution and SIDE/SIDE/GLIDE method, I make no mods to anything LQ and now it feels like this:
The lack of glide leads to a whole array of issues. To go along with Eric, I'll sometimes wet the rubber itself - something Id never do with standard squeegee.
The only thing is trying to fit an Ettore rubber into the v2 clips is difficult, so, dont use them. Simple.
Good work to Sam. I knew youd break through.
