Swing Flags

I was wondering how those of you who use swing flags make them. I've heard of people using shorter metal poles, but when I used them, we just used thin PVC piping. Also, do you weight them?

There are so many different ways to make swing flags. Some of them use a baton, some use a pole (doesn't matter what the pole's made out of), some have a chain instead of a pole, and some don't have anything - just a weight sewn into the end of the flag.

And they come in a huge range of sizes, too. They can be really tiny or really big. You generally don't need to weight swing flags because you can't spin them anyway.

Our guard used chain ones. But those were getting old so we just made a bunch of swing flags out of PVC piping.

The swing flags we use are made out of the more durable PVC pipe and are about 4 1/2 ft long. The recent trend is to make the swing flag huge for a better effect. The silk is as long or longer as a regular 6ft pole flag.

Well we use professional swing poles. They have a rubber handle on the bottom and a removable plastic stopper on the top. they are very dangerous though. I hit a girl in the head and gave her a concusion. I told her multple times that she was in the wrong place. Our sponsor would continuw to nag me because I didn't do my moves full out. So I got tired of it all and did my move full out and hit her in the head. She never missed that sopt again.

Because of high cost of living, more and more people are looking how to earn money without investing on the internet. But, most of the internet money making ideas are scams. So, the best way finding any legitimate ways to make extra income. My suggestion is to do transcription jobs. I saw an advertisement saying that the free transcription jobs from home for beginners are available at OJCircle. It will be helpful to those, who need to make extra money online.
