We have had our panther fiberglass 25' pole for almost 10 months. We have 2 3'X5' flags at full mast most of the time. We have also had 3 3'X5' flags on occassion. There have been several days with winds at 15-20kts. We have had no problems with the ladder or the ladder mounts. The pole with flags attached weighs less than 10lbs. We can hear a bump ever now and then when the wind changes direction, but nothing serious. All in all, we are pleased with our pole. Best wishes and may God Bless ya, Al & Dee Weaver
I looked at the picture and description of the ladder mount unit. It says that once the mount is installed you can slide the pole through the top mount and then put the bottom of the pole in the bottom mount so you never have to climb the ladder. So, my question is how do you get the flag on the pole if you don't climb the ladder? Do you put the flag on and push it through the mount also?
I already have a flag pole so put me on the list, that flag would look good at Pismo Beach CA. Bought the pole and ladder mounts from Vista Flags about three years ago with no complaints. In fact the wife told me If buy any more pirate flags she is going to make me walk the plank. I think she is teasing (lol).
