Make a great one for under $20!
I just made my own. At our local Army Surplus I bought a lightweight aluminum walking pole (like a ski pole for hikers) which is basically what Clinton uses (he refers to it as a ski pole several times). It is light, durable, adjustable in height (set it to 4 foot length) has an ergonomic handle grip on the end, and a rubber cap for the end that slides off. I attached a 6 foot length of cord/rope and the rubber cap holds my "flag" (a $1.39 black bandanna). It works perfectly. It's strong enough to really rub and scratch my horse when I am desensitizing and easy to use. The flag and rope ends remove easily when I don't want them on. I figure having $400 worth of his training DVDs is enough, Clinton doesn't need my extra $70 for his handy stick. Mine cost me $18.99.
