I've had one on my Rhino for about a year. BadAZZ! It came with a quick disconnect, like for a compressed air hose, and a remote to change the colors and or sequence of the LED's. I just ordered 2 for my YXZ. They are pretty heavy duty, I wouldn't call it thin, maybe can't fly a 3' x 5' flag but I don't know any SxS whips that can.
Rainbow Rods will run a 3X5 flag......Comes with a quick disconnect and remote controlled 140 colors/themes. When we have them on at camp people think we are having a Rave. Brudda Brian has been making them for awhile and I am pretty tough on them as I seem to find the low branches on the Sand in Oregon.
I also run the 5150 whips and can say they hold up to whatever is tossed at them. The other lighted whips I had I was Leary about running them in the daytime but with the 5150 I just put them on when I get the car off the trailer and forget about them. Top notch in my book
