Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Duck Very disappointed.
I bought this pole in May of 2013. Today, January 2, 2015 it snapped at the first joint from the ground. There were no winds above 25 MPH, recently. Deterioration began with the cleat that holds the rope. I am waiting to hear back from Annin Flagmakers. The fact that others have posted this same problem, says to me that there is a defect in the product.
I strongly urge those of you who read this, not to buy!

Installed on June 2013. The pole lasted through the winter with needing a repair to the tie off and the clips that hold the flag on the rope had to be replaced. Today with winds at 25-30mph and gusts that hit over 40mph the flap pole snapped at the lower joint leaving about 4 feet left from the ground. If there is any winds over 30mph around you, your better off with a steel pole.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by jim85711 Was more then I expected
I have been shopping for over 6 months on line for an affordable residential fiberglass flagpole and sturdy, I had second thoughts until I open the box and saw itâs construction,
tapered shape, splendid white color, the golden bright shining ball on top of the truck. The only items missing, which I am purchasing is a 18 inch painted Eagle in flight.
this product is easy to assemble and quickly installed. The Fiberglass flagpole arrived on a Friday evening, Hole prepared at 630 a.m. sleeve inserted and leveled, gravel bottom 1 ft, checked level, pour ready mix for the reminder, racked gravel on top of ready mix, let set 1 hour, place the face plate, flying the US 4x6 nylon flag by 9am

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by RPeel Doesn't Hold Up
Time in place: 1 month, and have permanently took it down.
Problem: The pole comes in 3 pieces which easily fit together. However.......each joint is held together by one screw. They just do not hold up at all. As the wind blows and the Flag is waving, each of the joints come slightly apart. This makes the flagpole look like some sort of crooked and rickety pole rather than the straight and true pole needed to hold your Flag.
Problem 2: The rope tie-off is way to small and cheap plastic. One cannot tie the rope of properly without an increased level of creativity. In addition, if you tie to winch down the rope to keep it tight, the tie-off which is made of cheap material, is on the verge of snapping or breaking.
Attempted resolution: I added fiberglass epoxy and an additional screw to each joint. Neither worked to stabilize the pole.
Bottom line: It will look pretty that first day you put it up with no breeze at all. However, with any bit of wind at all, the structure of the pole simply will not hold up.
Do not buy. For nearly $300 you deserve much higher quality.
