I like the little Prism tube tails just fine (I have two), but sometimes you need to Go Big!

This 100' tail has a large diameter and really makes a show.

$50 with stuff sack

Shipped

I bought this one new as a backup for my identical tail I use from time to time pulled by my Prophecy. Its a big kite, makes the tail look normal...  :-)

Seeing the original post refers to a 25 foot flag , what kite of rod would you suggest?

Don't overcomplicate this, it's fairly simple. Clip the upper left corner of the flag to the line with a carabiner or something similar. On the bottom left corner, tie on a short line that ties off to a sandbag. Adjust the quantity of sand based on the size of the flag and the lifting capacity of your kite.

I fly my 3'x5' Clemson flag this way, although on the bottom corner I just attach one or two carabiners for weight (I fly smaller kites, not big lifters). Works fine, hangs straight, looks good.

Over complicate?  Roll Eyes With your method, when the wind gusts or luffs what happens to the flag?

Anyway, here's a video of a fella named Glenn Mitchell doing just as I suggested. He gives some other useful tips as well.

Maybe sleeving a rod at the bottom edge of the flag? Has this been tried before?

Fasten a rod to the hoist edge -in a sleeve or otherwise. Connect the top of the rod to the kite line. Connect a separate line to the bottom of the rod and attach the free end of this line to the kite line some distance below the top-of-the-rod connection. Adjust this line so the rod is held vertical when in flight.
I'm thinking I saw this in an old kiting book, perhaps 25 Kites That Fly by Leslie Hunt.

The hoist end of the flag still wouldn't be vertical. Check out the picture on Gomberg's site showing a flag flying. https://www.gombergkites.com/e-stream.html#a-flags
