    Any type of pole would do bud as you can mod it anyway like wagga has done.

    Wagga & Mark makes it look so easy don't they?:rolleyes:

    Who needs ladder :D

    Mind you H-Man has some good mod vids on here to show you how to make any type of pole be it wfp or trad gear fit together using quick-loq method too.

    i always buy a Harris pole and then fit an Anza pole tip for wagtail use . you can buy both [pole and tips)these in BnQ ,

    lasts a long time and not too heavy for daily use

    I like H-Mans pole converstions probably the best as he also uses a plastic wfp angle crank which is a must when using a wagtail to adjust it to get the right angle on the glass. Being quick-loq design can fit anything on the pole you want if you mod your trad tools too and to top it off the same pole can be used as a wfp if attaching a wfp brush & hose.

    H-man is one smart cookie for sure :)
