What is the best swivel ergonomic loop mop handle?

Tuesday’s Answer:

In my experience, there are none.

While using an ergonomic handle on a flat mop is comfortable, the flat mop is never turned over and the handle offset remains in the same position.

Reversing the handle offset, as when a loop (Kentucky) mophead is turned over, makes the handle too clumsy to use, and the operator must then stop and turn the offset handle back to its original position by pushing a release pin or some similar device.

This is awkward and takes time.
