    Using a pole incorrectly, not only awkward and restrictive.
    You generally end up with sore shoulders/arms.
    Find most pole connection have set angle on them to put you cleaning tools on
    So you have to adjust to that angle.
    But with an adjustable angle on a pole you can now adjust the pole to the way you want use it as shown in this video.

    Great vid :)

    A lot of similarities to the way WFP should be done as well in terms of what you said about holding the pole / stress on shoulders.
