Snow foam lance

Hi... as I'm on a phone the search function isn't working and I can't find much on lance recommendations at all.
Could you lovely people please help me out and recommend a good lance as I'm guessing this is as important as the actual snow foam.

Thankyou

Pretty much all the same. Cheap ones from the bay work perfectly well. The lance is not as important as the foam.

I'd personally avoid the cheaper karcher one. It's a bit flimsy and doesn't really foam up very well.

The brass ones are really good and pretty much all the same. If I didn't already own one I'd probably get this one:

I half agree with this. As long as the fittings are metal you'll be fine

Search facility in the site isn't great you're better using Google. The site search facility will work on a phone but you need to go into advanced search.

Here's a search on Google for pages on here I searched via my phone

If I remember correctly the in2detailing one that smiley posted a link to was positively reviewed.

Ok, just to update I went with a ICOCO lance from Amazon... it was only £14... I paid more for the actual foam ( Bilt Hamber Autofoam ) at £17 for 5L
Once it arrives its experiment time....i'm a Snowfoam virgin

Most important thing is to actually maintain the lance.

This means flushing thru with clean water after use, and then occasionally stripping it down, checking filter and cleaning internals from build up.
