How many of you remember playing flag football in middle and perhaps in high school? For me, I remember playing this form of activity quite fondly because I was mostly playing the hiker (center) position where I was the player that kept “snapping” the ball to the quarterback where he makes plays and throws the balls to other offensive linemen that’s on my team. I never really never played the gridiron type of football in high school which is the most common version that’s played in the NFL. If I was, I would very likely play the center position, because I that’s the only position that I was good at playing.
My other highlight of playing this game was when I was playing defense where I caught an interception. This only happened once, however. If memory serves me right, we didn’t score after I caught the ball, but we were very much in field goal range. There were no field goal posts when the game was going on. So, kicking a field goal was not an option. From where I caught the ball we went four downs, but had to turn the ball over to the other team for not scoring. I haven’t played flag football in over 20 years, and I just thought I’d share this.
What I’m going to do for the rest of this post is introduce you to a flag football set called SKLZ 10 Man Flag Football Deluxe Set by SKLZ. This set can be played with 5 men on offense and 5 men on defense. Instead of tackling on opposing player, you simply pull one of the football flags that’s shaped like a long ribbon from the belts that’s attached to the opposing player’s waist belt who’s holding the ball as shown in the picture to the right. The flags are attached to the belt using velcro where one team would wear the blue flags, another team would wear the yellow ones.

This product has received a rating of 4.6 stars out of 5 from the mostly satisfied customers who purchased this item. I have not used this item before, but since it’s coming out of 249 customers, I feel that the rating is enough to convince me to promote this item on this site.
One reviewer stated, “Purchased for my son to use with his friends. Has gotten a lot of use and really held up.”
Another reviewer stated, “These are a good deal, I’m happy with them and would get more if I need them.
I would recommend this set based on product durability and the reviews. The only drawbacks that I found is that the items in the set might come in smaller sets. For instance, the cones that come with the product can be “very small” as several reviewers stated. What happened was that he/she purchased larger cones to use a ball marker on the field.
Another drawback could be that the belts might not be as long. I know that there are people of all shapes and sizes. The belts measure at 34″ and as stated earlier, one belt fits most.
