    I've used my belt loop from the beginning, but it sucks when the flags
    stick together.

    Dracula and UULC:

    Same problem here. I take the elastic off and bang the bundle about 6 good stiff hits on the door sill of my Ranger. Helps some.

    I am sure though you guys probably already thought of that though!

    I have ranted about this b/5 - there are flags being used by SMP in Oklahoma that do not stick together. Verizon is also using these flags. We tried to get these in Texas but were told they cost more. My solution - I beat the bundles against my bumper and throw however many stay stuck, sometimes 4-to 6 at some marks.
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was !

    I'm all for a good rant here and there, but you guys are seriously complaining about flags sticking together?

    When the flags stick together I just throw the ones sticking together. I know there are better things to complain about, but this is a sore spot with me. I would hold my taigate meeting and pull flags apart. I had some folks on the crew who would spend the time to pull 1000 flags apart. I have even left them on the hood to loosen them up. My bad, they just melted to the hood in the Florida heat and with the engine running and A/C on high.

    I didn't think anything of it until I was introduced to flags that don't stick or melt together as they do here in Texas - by the way, it hit 100 today.[insert Sweaty Smilie here]
