Heading to the CSR any ideas where one can purchase a flexible sand flag/pole.
I used an old surf rod for the Simpson but it broke off before Dalhousie.

It is a great 3 piece flag that doesn't break, comes with mounting bracket and under $100

a fishing shop could sell you a "wog pole" actually a squid pole. Willem uses one apparently... Bought JohnR a 7 metre one but it broke unfortunately, maybe a 5 or 6 metre would be better, not too expensive either.

Go to Kmart or a cheap fishing shop you should be able to buy a 12 foot surf rod for for less than $60

The ones from the push bike shop are a bit short unless you mount them on the roof rack. By the way this is what I have used in the past.

a little more expensive, baut I can vouch for its durability
Bullivants Slingrig provide our site ones- rubber coated flexi fibreglass and a quick release coupling for the base. Easy to take off and put on, just get a bracket welded on your front bar or roof rack for it.

I use a piece of orange electrical conduit which I mount into a 3/4 piece of pipe mounted on the bullbar. The conduit is sleeved at one end so it can be cut to length and sleeved together when required. Very flexible and cheap. Use duct tape to hold in place. Cheers
