    Tailgating flag pole and stand

    Any fanatics have experience with a decent telescopic flag pole and wheel stand. My wife bought me this one(see link below of 19ft) however, the stand tends to flex more than I would like, even with a light breeze tonight. My concern is the stand flexing and the pole hitting my car with the winds up at Jack. The pole itself is well made, however, the stand is the weak link.

    Anyone have a setup they would recommend? Perhaps one with an aluminum flag stand rather than a fiberglass stand?



    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Re: Tailgating flag pole and stand

    We have a tailgating set with a metal base. The base is the best thing about it, because the pole is nothing more than a golf ball retriever so it doesn't handle much of a wind. The pole on your unit looks much more sturdy.

    Re: Tailgating flag pole and stand

    Judging by the picture in the link the stand is held by the wheels of you car. Could you get a metal pipe that is just large enough to slide over the round part of the stand ? I would think that would make the whole thing more sturdy.
