Our old shower wand started falling apart so off to the store I go.
The old one was a waterpick so the new one was one of those.
Either the hose isnt limp enough or the mount it fits in is too
smooth, the head rotates sideways while in use.
so back to store, tried target.
got one with two heads, one regular fits on end of mount, the other
with hose fits out the side. wierdly the wand one has serrations so
the head cant turn, but the pick spray pattern lever is way too stiff.
worse the vacuumn cup mount for the wand head falls off the wall.
I am now back to where I started less about 80 bucks for the two wand
I passed on the deltas, having bought one about 4 years ago for a home
I was selling, it fell apart just washing the tile.
is it impossible to make dcent products. I hate buying multiple items
to just get one decnt one and all the hassle returning stuff:(

I just installed a multi-spray shower wand for my client that fits all
of your requirements: flexible-enough hose, dial very easy to turn,
stays where you want it, etc. Don't remember the make but I can look at
it next time I go over there. I think she got it either at Ace or at OSH
(Orchard Hardware Supply, California home-improvement stores).
"Wikipedia ... it reminds me ... of dogs barking idiotically through
endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it.
I agree with you that it is hard to find things that are made the way
Ask around before buying, like "Do you have many returns for Brand X
Check if they sell parts for their products.
Does the product have any of those "out-of-this-world" screws that
make it harder to take apart and fix?
If you know you will have something for a while and it's well made,
buy multiple quanities as it may be outsourced to a foreign country.
Pet peeve - companies that make you buy more than one of an item.
I am making a list for future publication. :-)
