    As per the title really. I don't particularly like ladder work so I'm going to practice tradding with a pole in case I can't WFP for any reason. What's the best squeegee for the job? I have a couple of wagtails but just wondered what others use.

    I use Unger blades, with an angle adaptor fitted to the Moerman 6 meter telescopic pole.

    You can get the Moerman pole in ToolZone for a cracking price

    I have two slimline wagtail flippers 10" and 14". Stick it on a 5m harris pole with an angle adapter. As others have said you will struggle with the frames but is doable.

    Check out some of the vids on youtube.
