I'm using metal masts for my 160m Flag here.
The one at the rear is steel, and the one at the front
is aluminum.
Both masts are about 10-15 ft from the vertical wires
of the Flag.  Farther is better if you have the space,
but I don't feel that my Flag suffers any that I can
Good luck and 73

I am about to put up a couple of flag antennas in my back yard (one
running 50 degrees, the other at 330 degrees, with a common support for
the back end). 

I *thought* I needed to use non-conductive masts (I was planning to use
fiberglass masts (from The Mast Company []) as the
supports, but recently heared that I can use aluminum ones without much
(if any) negative effect.  I assume they're lighter and stronger. 

The question, aluminum or fiberglass? 

Thanks in advance,
