    wagtails are highly regarded and you can put them on a pole, as you can a basic squeegie, but i've heard it's easier to use a wagtail, though i don't have one

    wagtails are ok for shop windows, but for the 1st floor house windows ther difficult to master you will need an angle adapter as you can struggle to at the bottom of the window because the sill gets in the way you will also need to modyfy it by putting on a detailing attachment made out of a wire coat hanger or something, and also if you get the whirlwind one i find it easier to put the wash pad at the top when using it on a pole, hope this helps
