This is my first pole, in a strong wind it looks like a fly rod, I have replaced it with one I made, a 35' steel two peice welded together weighs about 200 lb(first picture), I Can fly two 5'X8' flags with no problem. My flag flys 24/7 I have two 100w spot lights on it with a dusk/dawn switch on it. I buy my flags from my senator for around $21 for a 5'X8'

My flag is up 24/7. Yes it is lit up at night. It has flown since 9-12-01.
I was on duty 9-11 or it would have been up then.
