    I started doing it recently the way I do now and can't beleive how much less detailing
    Best one is my 0° swiveloc
    Don't know why but I can fan as good on the end of a pole with that as I can with a squeegee in my hand
    It's all about stopping the rubber leaving the glass as it rides up the window rubbers

    I use 0° on a pole for awkward windows
    But just got 30° one also and trying that out for normal windows and seems good
    I don't lock 0° just leave it loose and fan on the pole..if it is loose you can twist the pole in your hands to turn the corners easier
