Steel Whip Sand Flags
« on: February 14, 2018, 08:35:26 PM »
I have a few of these "steel whip" flagpoles that are looking pretty tattered.  For the life of me cannot find anything online.  Anybody have any leads?  Definitely don't want fiberglass poles.

Ryan, I  remember seeing them at Florence Yamaha, One Stop in Reedsport, The pelican in Winchester,  and Parker's in North Bend. I can't tell you for sure if they still carry them... I'll check with Florence Yamaha Friday  and get back to you

old school CB antenna whips work (108"), check with a radio store. I use nothing but fiberglass, and carry spares

Never thought of that. Thanks for the idea. Can't stand fiberglass breaking and splitting.

A 4wd offroad shop might also have a steel antenna if you got one close by. If you can find an old q-whip those are good to, mine has survived quite a few wrecks since 1988 & it's still in use.
overkill is an often underrated achievement

I called the Glamis Beach Store and had them ship some to me.  Or was it Sidewiders there on the south side?  I forgot, been several years.

I use to use the steel whips. I now run the fire stick ones. I have had the same one for more than ten years. It's very durable. My old whips did not old up this well.

I have both and I prefer the steel one. Fire stick gets annoying bouncing off my helmet when riding.
