    Plastic flags work great if you have the larger well balanced one's. I easily stick 95/100 first throw (even in trees).

    Got no tricks for whiskers except nails but don't have much use for them, maybe 5 times.

    Plastic flags suck, i only use metal the best way i just throw them like darts and sticks every time. well most the time. and whiskers are a big waste, thats what offsets are for, i dont have time to get down and start pounding away into pavement.

    I use wiskers only when required. They are great and durrable , you can have a mower run over them and you'll still see the wiskers.... they will be shorter, but they are still there.

    The biggest pain in the arse, is that you have to either use a PK nail on hard surfaces (Asphalt) or a small wooden hub to hammer them into in the earthen areas.

    The plastic shafted flags are useless in my area, the ground is too hard.

    Whiskers are great for high traffic areas, but plastic flags suck, unless you locate in real sandy soil.
    Now, what the ---- did I do with that ped wrench???????????

    wiskers are expensive. Flags work better if you point the end with lineman pliers/cutters and then use the pliers to push into ground. I find they go into ice that way. I use descreet paint on the asphalt.
