After using Sorbo and Unger Ninja handles I wasn't sure if this one would be any better but after using it for a week I really like it. The angle is great for pole work and the quick switch from 40 to 0 degrees is great for getting behind furniture or displays close to glass. My only issue is that the release lever is sometimes difficult to unlatch and if done wrong will pop it off the rod, requiring you to pop it back on. Durability wise this handle seems to be sturdy. I've dropped it a couple times and banged it around and it's held up.
