I've been using pec pads and eclipse fluid (coppermine) method for the last four years and not had a problem. I have however lost my plastic spatula and need to restock on supplies. Although I'm happy with my cleaning process it's not always been practical especially when away for home. I've decided a year or so ago to get an arctic butterfly. But which one? I'm a little confused. I thought their was one brush and now it turns out that VisibleDust have a whole range of brushes. I mostly use a 1.3 crop and occasionally use a 1.6 crop and have aspirations for a full frame sensor. Which one should I get?

Arctic Butterfly - 724 should be fine
Agree with Cole .... I bought one at Focus yesterday. I have'nt dared use it yet though after reading a few horror stories of it smudging chamber oil onto the sensor cover.
So I don't have to worry about the sensor size? The 724 is one size fits all?
Don't think you need to worry about that. Just go through it couple of times...

Yes its very effecient a getting the lubricant from your shutter to the sensor. Just make sure the bristles stay in view on the sensor and you will be fine.
For what its worth I have gone back to the air blower, pads and eclips fluid with the ocasional use of the spec grabber.
