Default Boat Flag Pole for Rod Holders and Rocket Launchers - Over 10,000 Sold!

Update 4/2020

WOW,

Its been almost 9 years and we have come a long way. Thousands of flagpoles sold. I see them every time I am on the water.
We have been slammed with orders for flag poles and American flags during this crisis. Its awesome to be apart of our country showing it patriotism.

Be aware of some cheap PVC copies showing up. Ours are the original, indestructible, and carry a lifetime warranty.

Thanks again for all your support. It all started here.

I want to personally thank The Hull Truth and its membership for helping me get this project off the ground. We are now distributing flagpoles to retail dealers all over the state of Florida and looking to expand nationally.
Thanks again!

In 2009 I built some flag poles that fit into rod holders and overhead rocket launchers for my own boat. I had searched heavily for such a product and was really surprised nothing was available. After numerous requests to build these for other boaters, I have refined the design and started producing them. There is nothing comparable available. These are the perfect solution for flying your countries colors, your dive flags, tournament flags, boat and trade show display flags, etc.

The flag poles have solid fiberglass rods with adjustable bases to fit into smaller rod holders or larger diameter rocket launchers typically mounted to t-tops.

The stainless steel clips are adjustable to accommodate different sized flags with grommet spacing up to 38”. Clips are easily removed by hand to switch flags. Additional clips can be purchased to fly multiple flags on one pole.

I have tested the poles to 75mph with a 2' x 3' flag but cannot recommend them for use while the boat is moving due to possible injury or damage to your flag.

I will be running it next time I go out and will let you know.

Got the pole but I didn't get out on the boat this weekend. It'll get a good test next week probably.

This is great, I`ve been looking for a way to mount a flag on the boat without a lot of work. Ordered mine.

Got it today. Very cool product. I'm sure I will be feeling a wee bit safer snorkeling off the back with my dive flag waving just that little bit higher. Thanks.

I want everyone to have a chance to fly their flag on the 4th of July so I am extending the free flag offer until the 4th.

I have also been including a flag with each pole for people who placed multiple pole orders and will continue to do so. I want to see some pics from the 4th with flags everywhere!

I got mine yesterday.. I must say it is much better than I expected. Great quality and you couldn't buy anything even close for that price. Thanks for a great product. I've been wanting to put a flag on my boat for quite some time, this just made it very easy.

I've been looking for something like this, tired of that long pvc pipe I've been using! Will place an order today, hopefully I'm in time for the US Flag too!
