Where can I find the floor brush with short neck? All I found is the one with long neck.

Why did TriStar change the neck if the short one was fine?

Can a Electrolux Epic 6500 SideKick 2 fit the TriStar wands?

Tristar cannot use attachments made for Electrolux. I tried using my Renaissance sidekick it won't work.

Well it could just be me but i found the original neck way too short i have to bend down in order to keep the nozzle flat

Could that be the reason why the floor brush neck was extended?

I also saw that TriStar went back to making the short neck; or did TriStar forget to update their website?

Worse yet, TriStar is using plastic nylon bristles on the EXL & MG Series floor brush; they should use natural horsehair bristles like the old CXL floor brush.

Really? I always assumed it was horsehair but comparing it to my other horshair floor brushes the colors are not like the actual horsehair it's also just slightly stiffer but for being nylon it's not bad
