    Doesn't it have a foldable handle? You'll probably have to get a kit for it as it is, for the leak.

    I have six Solos, some more than 10 years old. None of them leak. The handle valves need to be replaced every now and then. Pretty much maintenance free. Never tried an SP though. They might be good also.

    not sure if you are joking or not, but my statment refers to the wet back that you get from the leaking sprayer (THE topic of the post), i'd guess your the raciest if your that quick to jump on somebody, lighten-up*trucewhiteflag* .
