Has anyone tried both the Rapid RH long reader and short reader? I know the short reader used to be the standard, but now it seems like Wagner is pushing the long one. Does any one have any preferences, or know why?
I prefer the long reader, I have fat fingers and it is difficult to use the short ones. I would see no value in leavng the short readers in the sensor. I would think someone might need them worse than you do!
I think the new orange long reader has the ability to hold the info after taken out of the hole. Besides the fact it's easier to use on deeper depths. I gots fat fingers as well.
What do you guys use for getting the short reader in and out of deeper holes?
I used a loop of chalk line attached to the bail on the reader. I would keep it tight to allow me to hold the bail up so II could find the slot and turn into position.
Back when we had the short reader I just drilled all holes an inch deep. That made it easy to use the reader.
But hey, I did find some guys that actually wouldn't drill deeper than 1 1/2" because they couldn't get the reader in and out.... Seriously!
I have a small needle-nose pliers that worked pretty good. Love the longer reader though.
