Detailed Online (wide mouth bottle) snow foam lance is what I've been using for a few months and no complaints especially for £26 delivered:

They must be. I had the exact same thought.

This recent release from DodoJuice looks exactly the same but in different colours.

I'm currently looking for a new snow foam cannon to replace my cheapie Amazon one. Trying to choose between the Polar Blaster and one of these two...

Throw another one in to the mix: https://www.in2detailing.co.uk/produ...nce-cannon-pro

This one is interesting, seems to work well from the videos I've seen. There's a weight at the end of the draw hose so that it moves around in the container, if you've got it at an angle then the draw hose follows the solution slopping around inside.

Had the same question a little while back which I asked in this useful thread, the answer is yes. This will be what I'll try next, the full unbranded version. Gives you an idea of some of the markup at places.

Autoglym Polar Blaster is very good.

I got one early on and was a little worried initially that the output didn't seem quite as "strong" as my old AB lance, but having used it a lot i have come to appreciate the difference the smaller nozzle makes and it does make very thick foam, even tho it comes out at about 90% pressure compared to my old AB HD Lance.

Once i had gotten my head around this, i came to appreciate the benefits of very thick foam compared to volumes of thinner foam, so i am now very happy that its doing exactly what i want from a foam lance

Works well, but be aware - the little "window" on the side is not see through. So you have no idea of how much product you've used or are adding to the lance.

I wouldnt buy another and am actively seeking a replacement bottle.

Thanks for sharing this AD18!

Might be worth picking one up from AliExpress in that case. I will say that if you look carefully at the metal connections on the the ones on AliExpress and the ones from Stjarnagloss and Dodo Juice, there are some differences (whether that means quality/performance diff, I don't know).
