I may be wrong, but I don't think there was a 10'.  They did make 8', I know for sure.  Modern LED whips typically only go to 6' for the longer ones.

They make a 10 and a 12, i also like the 10' 

I feel if i run a SXS over with a 10' it is there fault no matter what, due to them all running 5' whips, 

the big issue with over 8', it turns it into a freight charge over normal shipping, 

 

If you call them i am pretty sure they have some left, 

They show, request a custom size on there site

You could also check construction supply companies. Mines require all trucks to fly flags on site. I know the CAT repair person across the street has them on his service truck.

Great tip! I know a fella that works for CAT in Mesa. I was hoping to find a used 10 footer locally, as Alper said the shipping on a 10 foot whip is expensive. I'm not a fan of the disco light whips, and the guys that run 3 foot whips on their SXSs are hard to see coming at ya!

Classic Old School buggy Whips with a 3X5 American Flag is the ONLY way I roll!!!!! I LOVE that look 100Percent!!!  Iwrap the white in black electrical tape BUT that is a classic 8 Foot Buggy whip!!!!!!

I like the old school look for sure, I had 2 of them, but they don't fare well loading in the box trailer. Lost too many whips that way. Now I have 2 whips that are fiber optic. I call em light sabers. Different look for sure. I'm not a fan of disco sticks either. 

I feel like leds are the rice racer stuff of today.....

I wrap with waterproof led strip (adhesive on one side) from ebay, use clear shrink wrap and wha lah, super strong, never breaking led whip. Forget the top light, the leds are brighter and you can change or choose the light color.

Slightly off subject, but I really like the Buggy whip using the center pin of the connector for the light/LED  rather than separate wire and connector hanging out- 

Does anyone know if any more-reasonably price whips do it that way other than the faint "glowing" type ?

Try Light House of Arizona.  They are off McDowell and 43rd Ave.  They carry all kinds of stuff for construction vehicles.
