IMO rags are not worth the time and effort being such a short life span before they asre trashed. On the other hand, wind socks are made from Tyvek and hold up MUCH better. I dislike the North Wind brand due to the way they set them up (poor quality, not durable enough), rather do a google and get some customs socks with a 3/16" dia alum 2' L. stake with a 1/2" bent around 180 degrees at top, grometted top and bottom through the plastic collar, go headless initially. Go 50/50 on the snows to blues ratio if MS rlyway (either coast go all white). About $400 per 100.
