    telescoping flag pole

    I just picked up a 15 foot telescoping flag pole at walmart.....well ok it's not a true flag pole, but a telescoping pool cleaning pole. It slides to 5 feet long at it's shortest, and 15 feet extended....Here is the kicker....20 bucks, the cheapest one at camping world was 79.00. Their 20 foot telescoping was 212.00. I figure I can mount it up 5 feet on my motorhome ladder for the extra 192 dollars.......I had to drill 2 holes so I can zip tie the flags to it....the little woman gave her thumbs up.....thought others might like this option too.....

    Re: telescoping flag pole

    if you use plastic wire ties to mount the pole on your ladder, you can cut it down to take home after every game. just a thought.

    Re: telescoping flag pole

    How big of a flag are you flying and will it be sturdy enough to fly it with a stiff breeze??

    Cause if it works, it sounds like a heck of an idea.

    Re: telescoping flag pole

    Im flying 2 flags, the new logo flag over the old logo flag, this thing is very sturdy and the flags are roughly 5x3 each. If I need to add a zip tie to the ladder to sturdy it up I will.

    Re: telescoping flag pole

    I have a steady 12 to 15 mph wind blowing right now and the thing isn't even flexing.....this seems like a good inexpensive option....
