Every player needs a well-fitted flag football belt and durable flag football flags. While there are a variety of options out there, the release mechanism is what really sets them apart from each other. For example, some leagues use Triple Threat belts where the entire belt falls off when the player’s flag is pulled; others might use belts that are attached by Velcro. But the best flags for flag football really depend on the specific organization’s preference and budget.
FLAG football belts and flags are attached by a small piece of plastic called a pop socket. When the flag detaches from the players belt, it emits a popping noise, which makes it clear to everyone that the play has ended, avoiding any unnecessary injuries after the play. It also helps the referee more accurately spot the ball.
