    Default squeege hardness?

    Hi people!

    I'm trying to order a new squeege, but i don't know what the hardness is on the one i have currently...anyone here know more about this than me?

    the one i have now is for printing on flatstock with a sharp edge and is pretty flexible, not soft, but yields to pressure...

    Go with triple durometer, they is noice! I prefer 65/80/65. Everyone is different though.

    I like the triple duro too. Using a five durometer blade these days and it's the best. Sounds like your blade is a 75.

    Higher the number, the harder.

    I got a couple of those triple blades and I found them too hard to hand print with.

    I use straight 70s mostly.
