    Wow theres been quite a bit of feed back some weve heard before at trade shows. This product may not be for everyone as we have found out since we started marketing a year ago. We have had success with it though and after working out questions with customers because its something so new they have warmed up to it

    i think it is a great idea !!!!! but most locaters on this forum will not be able to afford the item. most locaters were not even willing to pay 50 bucks for that really nice vest that came out a few years back?????? nice job Bob on the flag thrower!!!!

    That thing is pretty impressive. But, I don't put flags in the ground. I don't think I've put a flag in the ground in over 2 years.

    My new flag shooter will do that, Spray. I haven't built it yet, it is just an idea at the moment. It is basically a pogo stick that inserts flags. Paint out your lines and then go put your equipment away because the fun is about to start. Hop on the pogoflagger and go. Accuracy comes with experience but the fun starts immediately.

    All kidding aside, I was checking out their website and they have a new video on the power of the flagshooter. It will shoot a flag into a block of ice. That to me says alot.

    That's interesting, does the contract there not require you to use flags, even at certain times of the year??? Like in Fall, or Winter??

    I go through a 1/2 case a week. 500 flags each of XO & ZAYO. I flag every time I go to a ticket even if I have been there numerous of times. You would trip over them. Last thing I want is a fiber damage. I will have to post a picture of one of my locates and it looks like a straight orange line. Well maybe not so straight as the bore crew did not put it in straight.

    The cable company does not provide them to us so it is an expense we don't want to incur.

    My philosophy is this: if you want flags, I'll put down the paint and then you can go buy the flags yourself and put them in the ground.

    I'm a little more diplomatic than that but they get the point.

    I had a contractor the other day get on me about it. Here is a conversation we had... paraphrased but as close as I can recall.

    I just finished the meet and was telling him I'll get it marked and it should be done in about 20 minutes...

    Me - Alright, it'll be done in about 20 minutes.

    Contractor - I want flags.

    Me - I don't have flags.

    Con. - What do you mean you don't have flags?

    Me - (Cable company name) doesn't provide them for us.

    Con. - Then how are you going to maintain your marks?

    Gas Co. employee also at meet - We have to maintain the marks after they paint it out.

    Me - (standing there saying nothing)

    Con. - That's a bunch of crap.

    Gas co. - That's how it is.

    Me - Okay, it'll be done in about 20 minutes.

    Well, this tool is different with the flag insertion tool. But, yeah I can say it is somewhat same with flag insertion tool. I can not say anything more about the flagshooter tool before I don't have a sufficient knowledge about it.
