Slap Sticks

hey as I am not a typical scenario player ( Sorry I am/was a tourny guy )

Does anyone have some good pictures of some slap stick / flag markers ?

Working on some for our big game, I want to try an bomb proofing them.

No Pics. Easy to make. Post with 2" PVC T fitting on top. Insert 1 1/2" pipe through it after paint half Blue and other half Red. Glue on a Red and a Blue end cap. If any of the other teams color is showing, it is neutral. Has to be completely red or blue showing on one side.

If you use Rebar driven into the ground and the pipe placed over it, it will turn as well making it a little more difficult to slap the color. Also easier to install and remove than trying to bury PVC pipe in the ground.

Flag on a rope. Taller 2" PVC pipe with T fitting on top. At the base a 4 way fitting or drill a hole if you don't mind breaking a few. Run a rope loop through the top and bottom and attach flags. One of the flags should be at the knots to make the loop.

Paint a colored bands on the pipe where the flag has to be entirely above for it to count as a up flag. Or which ever flag it highest counts as up.

You could also use a PVC T Joint and use a slightly smaller diameter pipe inside to slide back and forth. Paint each end a different team color. The field i play at commonly uses these types of slap sticks

Then there's these that Sean Scott cooked up last year. I took the picture at the PBN/CPX Meet & Greet. Electronic, scores to a laptop, LED lights that change from white (neutral) to red or blue depending on which side pushes the slider. Very cool. I don't know if they every fully finished them, but I think they had some pretty big plans with them. Probably have to reach out to Ryan at CPX now for more details.

Those LEDs are damn slick.

I used 16 Spinners/Sliders and oddly enough the players almost didnt use them to score points... lol

Ill post up pictures, I have them someplace...

Solar powered slap sticks. They sound expensive, yet they're also extremely awesome.
Is that a plastic light bulb cover on the top? I want to know more about how these work!

Lantern battery, I believe, was the power source. The whole idea was pretty simple and cheap, but development, from my understanding, was complex and costly.

I'd assume the cover is Lexan or something similar.
