I have been looking at the different Wahl clippers and now i am totally confused by the different one's available.
Jessie has a real problem with clippers close to his face and I have the Andis corded clippers. I was looking for a smaller clipper that has the corded or cordless option.
These are the one's I have been seeing. If anyone has the name and model of a good one please let me know.

Wahl Chromado Cord-Cordless Clipper price $149.99

Wahl 41590-0434 Limited Addition Clipper Kit, Silver Bravmini $89.65

Wahl 8786-451A ARCO SE Cordless Rechargeable Clipper $122

Wahl Bravura Professional Cord/Cordless Pet Clipper with Speed Control $149

There are a few different options and I dont know which one will work on a thick coated cocker. HELP!!!!

I have 2 of the Wahl Arco's and I absolutely love them!

Here is a link for one for $119.93-

http://www.petedge.com/product/Wahl-Arc ... /47057.uts

I know several people have the Bravura's and like them equally as well. They use the same blade as the Arco.

The advantage of the Bravura is you can use it as a cordless or corded where the Arco is only battery operated. However it comes with 2 batteries and they stay charged a long time.

I had the Arco and now have the Bravura. They are both equal as cordless except the combs-the arco combs are awful, never stay on. The Bravura combs are awesome, and with the combs I can do a complete cutdown or trim, where the arco combs would not stay on at all. But for faces and bottom of feet the adjustable blade is awesome and I love the cordless.

I think the Bravmini only has a 30 blade, not the adjustable 9-40 blade. I wish they would come out with a mini that has the adjustable blade.

If you shop around you can find them on sale and sometimes with a bonus blade.
