I was gonna say, I go through a mojo duck every year. It seems like some newbie steps on it or drops it every year. A goose flag is cheap compared to that.I use up a goose flag every year. And not necessarily Heavy Hauler's either. Avery, Final Approach, they all get beat up, thrown to the ground, stepped on, just basically abused for the season. The flag is torn, muddy, bloody and the poor rod is more "S" shaped than straight. Of course mine is stored in a pouch in my gun case and well, that gets beat up also.
