    Hi Boonie welcome to the forum!
    I haven't used the bent handles but if you got a job with high ceilings i can imagine they would be ideal, as it can be a struggle getting enough pressure with a straight handle when boxing the walls

    Their better for stand ups,better pressure points on the high and low. other than that, if your running mostly horizontals, I would not concern yourself too much with them. Also, some guys have a love hate relation with them, mine was hate
