No OR16s OR Flag Included.
Each kit includes Wire, spring, washer, screw eye, split ring, 6/32 screw and limited instructions. One kit will upgrade one OR12 Side Planer with the two OR16’s you purchased previously. This item is ideal for light biting fish. The flag will pull down when you have a fish on or if you are fouled in weeds.
For use on OR12L and OR12R boards.
OR12TF VS OR12TFEK
Off Shore Tackle offers 2 different Tattle Flag HD Upgrade Kits as aftermarket accessories for your OR12. The first is the Original OR12TF, which includes the HD wire, spring, necessary hardware, flag and two red OR16 Pro Clips to install on an OR12 Planer board. The other is the Economy kit, or OR12TFEK. The Economy kit has everything the Original has except
WITHOUT a Flag or OR16’s.
When fishing with monofilament line, the factory configuration of an orange OR19 on the bracket and a red OR16 on the back of the board will work great a majority of the time so you would just need to purchase the OR12TFEK Tattle Flag™ HD Economy kit. The Economy kit also works great for anglers that use releases other than the OR16 on the bracket, such as the OR18 Snapper or OR39 Sam’s Pro Release.
One might ask then, why would you want the full OR12TF Tattle Flag HD Upgrade Kit with the extra flag and the OR16’s? Some anglers choose to use an OR16 on the bracket as well as off of the Tattle Flag™ HD wire. This configuration is used when
you are using monofilament line and don’t want the board to trip. When the rod line is placed behind the pin in each of the OR16’s, that ensures that the board won’t trip and/or come off of the line. The extra parts and enhanced packaging are what makes the OR12TF more money.
In conclusion, for most anglers the OR12TFEK Tattle Flag HD Economy Kit is all that is needed. If you decide that you want to replace your flag (available in red or green to customize your preference) or need the extra OR16 to keep the OR12 secured on the line, they are available to purchase as aftermarket items as well.

Just as described works extremely well. Very pleased with purchase
This product is extremely easy to install and takes your boards to the next level. Worth the upgrade!
Perfect for the the newer boards with stationary flags as long as the flag has the holes to attach the spring. Could probably drill one if an older model and not have to buy the more expensive kit.
