    The dull orange color blower with a grey plastic tip is a strong blower too.

    You can get this from CP or MS Color.

    I've also tried the "Blue Blower with the metal nozzle" but I found it too stiff and hard to compress for my liking...
    I like this one as well.
    Cos the blower have legs that allow it to stand,
    and prevent the tip from any dirt.

    not sure if you can find Martin blower in SG, imho it is better then my giottos rocket.

    main reason is it is much softer. so easier to squeeze and it is oso shorter in at the mouth for easier storage.

    BTW I saw martin and try on it In Bangkok few week back.

    have the blue blower with the metal tip: too stick and hard to press
    the gittos rocket blower: too big to pack in bag and the rubber peel off with very fine black debris
    the cheap grey blower: small, light and strong...

    so, cheap not always bad... ha ha
    Hope to learn from everyone here....

    It is gd but harder to squeeze, needs more seasoning.

    After a longer period of usage, it'll be softer.

    I like the blue one with metal tip, the nozzle feels less likely to dislodge when placed in my camera bag.

    If you are referring Bergeon, it is very good but much more expensive than Giottos.

    If you're looking for the blue blower with metal tip, I saw it on sale at Orient Photo in SLS 6 level a couple of months ago. HAha.... mebbe too late an answer now.

    Honestly, this thread is kind of funny. Try searching for best blower, condom, rubber and this thread might pop out !!! Hahhaaha..... Anyone else might think this is a lewd thread or something ! lol !
