The SICHTKRAFT Wind Flag complies with ISSF (International Shooting Sport Federation) specifications for 50 m and 100 m ranges. According to the ISSF rules, wind flags must be placed at 10 and 30 m on those ranges (additionally on 70 m for 100 m ranges), on imaginary lines separating each firing point and its corresponding target.
The ISSF recommends wind flags with colors with a high contrast to the background. That is why we offer the SICHTKRAFT wind flags in 8 bright colors, some of them neon colors, for highest visibility even in low light circumstances.
The ground spike is made of aluminium and it is painted matte black. That way, there are no irritating reflexions and the shooters are not distracted. The ground spike is adjustable in height and it is available in two different sizes, 65 - 120 cm and 95 - 170 cm. This gives you the chance to compensate for uneven ground and have the height of all wind flags perfectly leveled.
The cantilever arm which holds the flag is made of stainless steel and it can rotate freely. A sliding disk made of weatherproof PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride) ensures the response of the flag to even the lightest winds. It also prevents distracting squeaking or friction noises in general.
All the small parts are made of stainless steel, too, just like the cantilever arm. So the product is 100% corrosion free.
The wind flags themselves are made of polyester fabric, ideal for outdoor use. The weight of the fabric is according to specifications 150 g/m². The wind flags are sold individually as spare part and can be replaced easily.
Please have in mind, that the used fabric is intended for outdoor use, but that neon colors can deteriorate when left in heavy radiation for prolonged time periods. We recommend to just take the flags and the flag holders from the ground spikes and store them indoors when not in use. That way, the colors will stay bright for years.
