Last year I used a ten foot section of electrical conduit as the pole. I screwed in two fisheye screws (measure your flag first!) into the pole and then latched on a flagclip to each fisheye. While hiking,I bungee corded the two clips together to keep them from clanging together. I had Cannon Mt., so i just C-clamped the pole to the side of the tower platform and It worked great. Hiking with the pole was cumbersome in places and i got some really weird glances but I saved the pole and plan to use it again on Carrigain. I am sure PVC pipe does the same job but part of the fun of doing this, is figuring out how to build it and get it to work and stay put among quite possibly some breezy conditions.
