Has anyone seen/used this yet? It looks like an interesting concept which may finally bring ergonomics to the nozzleman.
AND it can be fitted with a smooth bore

That nozzle looks like it belongs on the set of "Men in Black III"
Interesting concept, that is for sure - will be interested to read the feedback of anyone who gets to try one - it certainly could be a big improvement on what we've currently got. What stage is it at - is it available for sale now, or have they just made a few for trial?Busy polishing the stacked tips on the deckgun of I.A.C.O.J. Engine#1
...and before you ask - YES I have done a Bloody SEARCH!

I had the opportunity to try out one of these nozzels at a demo. I was impressed with its performance. It shifts all the strain from your wrist directly to your bicep, which should allow for longer operation with less fatigue. I placed an order for a couple of these extensions for field testing but have not received them yet. The other nice thing is that they will fit all of our existing nozzels, if I recall the 1.5" extension was around $90 and the 2.5" extension was around $110
