Most tailgaters like to fly flags of their team or college while at their tailgating space. For the past few years I had used a telescoping flagpole to fly my flag while tailgating. Unfortunately this past spring during the NCAA Baseball Regionals, the old flagpole had had enough. Since it was made of aluminum I was able to place it in the recycle bin but I needed a replacement before football season. I did my research online and finally decided on going with an Uncommon USA 20′ Telescoping Flagpole.
No one likes to pay for shipping so I was in luck when I took my family to the Orange County Fair and saw that Uncommon USA had an exhibitor’s booth there. I couldn’t really classify it as an “impulse buy” seeing how I was going to order one online in the next few weeks. I just didn’t wake up that morning thinking I would have my new tailgating flagpole in my possession that day. I was also lucky in that they were running a Fair special and the price I paid was lower than the online sale pricing I had researched. Lower price plus I could take it home without paying for shipping? I couldn’t get my credit card out fast enough.
The Uncommon USA 20′ Telescoping Flagpole already comes with an American Flag included but as part of my purchase I could select an additional flag. Because I already had a Chargers and Cal State Fullerton flag (the two teams I tailgate the majority of the time) I went with the State of California flag. I also went ahead and got the Flagpole Wheel Stand to take tailgating and hold my flagpole firmly under my SUV wheel.
Once I got it home I was thoroughly impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of the Uncommon USA flagpole. I am unsure what brand my old flagpole was but it definitely was inferior in quality. I was so impressed when checking out my new flagpole that I thought it would make a great video demonstration.
Judging by the video and comparing it to my old flagpole, I was confident this flagpole would be appreciated by other tailgaters. That is why I added it to the list of products we endorse and sell on our tailgating gear web store, Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com.
