    Flag pole

    I've been wanting to do this for some time now. Finally did a little research and found like most things you check on the 'net it's ((information overload))!
    Anyway,this is the one that I sort of decided on, and was wondering if any member has one from this company. I'd like to go higher, but the price does the same, and they become a real challenge to get vertical.

    Really cool that they have the solar lights now that go on the 'top" of the pole!
    I'm also going to change it to a rope kit. I really don't want to hoist that pole anymore times than absolutely necessary.

    Thanks for any input.

    I've been wanting to get one myself. I've been looking on ebay and the Company I was looking at was out of Michigan but I think they all are pretty much the same. The one I looked at was 488.00 and one piece which makes shipping a hassle as they don't ship to a resident. I haven't looked in awhile so things may have changed.

    I have a 22 foot telescoping. The name on mine is "Uncommon The Original Telescoping Flag Pole". My wife bought it from the local Sea Explorers. They installed it and did a great job. I added a solar light a few years ago. My original was a solid pole with a rope halyard. It was a PITA when the rope had to be changed. Of course, I never changed it before it broke when I could use the old rope to pull in the new one.

    The telescoping would be my choice. It isn't that difficult to raise and lower the sections.

    We have 3 flag poles - all from Uncommon USA. 18, 20, and 25'. All three are the HD. All three with the LED solar lights on the top.

    The Good - The poles themselves have been great. They've stood up to NASTY winds (100+MPH wind). They are really easy to raise and lower, i would not bother with the rope kit. You have fly 2 flags per pole, if you wish, and you can fly one at half-mast when needed. They come with the PVC tube you need to install the 'socket'. You need to auger out a 12-18" hole, 3' deep I believe, place a couple shovel-fulls of gravel, and then concrete the tube/socket it. Once the concrete is cured, drop the pole into the PVC and you're good to go. The pole easily slides out if you wish to move it or take it down.

    The Bad - Small issues, but the chain that connects the LED light to the flag has failed a bunch of times, leading to some mods to make it work. In this past summer's storm (the biggest storm I've ever lived through, winds >150km/h (~100MPH)), the poles survived, but the flag actually sucked the rings right off the top of the 25' pole, and took the LED light with it. The light has survived, and it now lives on top of our windmill for a cool night effect. I still have to get the hardware to get the 25' pole flying a flag again.

    We've even got the 2" hitch receiver pole mount so that we can fly a flag behind the gator!!!

    The telepole's look pretty good to me, and a thirty footer would be nice!!

    Any other Q's please don't hesitate....

    I've had a 20' Uncommon 3 section pole for about 14 years. Got mine from the local feed store and I get sale ads every year or so from them. I usually buy one of their 3'X5' flags, either the HD dacron or nylon when I need a replacement. I prefer the nylon as it flies better in light breezes. I use 2 12v 10w halogen spots mounted on a chain link fence top rail to light it with a timer. The lights shine straight up 6' apart w/visors so the light isn't visible standing on the ground. I've not see any solar lights that will stay lit all night or supply enough light coverage. My flag is lit regardless of which way the wind is blowing and the LED/solar unit I had before just couldn't do the job.

    I reckon' I'm getting by as cheap as I can. I have my 3% flag attached to a 10' length of conduit and layed on top of my gutter system out back where my shop is.

    That is pretty cheap.

    Still effective, but cheap.

    Hahahahahha

    Harold, my LEDs will stay on all night in summertime, but not in the shorter day winter. What did you use to make visors??

    Hmmm, so it won't be lit all night in the winter months. Not good, and it would be too much of a job to try and run electric to where I want the pole!
