There are three main types of Color Guard equipment. Flags can come in a variety of heights, but the most common is six foot, with a four foot 'silk' (the fabric). Poles are made out of different materials, usually lightweight metal, and are weighted at the top and bottom. Poles can come in black, white, gold, or silver, and can be taped with electric tape to achieve a specific color. There are also rifles, made of commonly wood, or plastic, and either 36'' or 38'' long. 38'' are more typical the more advanced the guard is. Rifles are usually white, with black or white straps. Bolts can be black, silver, or gold. Similarly, Sabres come in a variety of lengths, and are made of metal or plastic.
