Been thinking, I have some old korum silver banksticks that I could maybe use in conjuncton with some buzz bars and a stage stand on the wooden platforms instead of a rod pod. This will probably work out cheaper than buying a new pod, so may switch to this. Anyone know of any good silver buzz bars and stage stand that might fit these banksticks?

When using banksticks and alarms I've always put the but ring infront, just as a precaution because there isn't a point in not doing so IMO

I found the same with the KNX, to be fair these days I barely use the pod and always use the single bank sticks

There are generally gaps in the planks that you can at least put the front legs in. If the pod extends enough try to get the butt ring before you alarm. So you are keeping more weight further back. Cant do that with my KNX pod even with 9 foot dwarfs

Not a problem for me as the water Iím fishing is a day only. So wonít need to worry about lashing it down. Just need to keep my eyes on it though!

. . .fox quattro / x pod legs are same diameter as euro / cam banksticks & storm poles which as far as I'm aware are still readily available? Smallest size is 12" though . . .

yep, pods are ok just lash em down if your a heavy sleeper etc. I personally like a goal post set up with the butt ring behind the alarm , Id die of embaresment if the pod got dragged in. Ive seen rods pulled in so i always lash the pod down or even use one stage stand on a leg of the pod if im there for a while and its on a platform. Also platforms tend to be narrow so if your there overnight give a bit of thought as to where you put it so you can play the fish without tripping over your set up

Unless you're having to fish locked up then a pod should be ok. Good idea to tie it down just in case though. If you can get a complete Quattro pod for £50 do it.

Do you think it would be ok to use a pod? Much of the reason i'm looking for a pod is that there are some wooden platforms on my fishery, and if the fish are showing in that swim then I need to be able to put my rods there!

I have a quattro pod, good design, built to last, very light if i remember correctly I used to put a peg in the ground and tie it off onto the peg so it didnt get dragged in. The banksticks are slightly different diameter to the standard fox ones so be careful if you buy a second hand pod with no sticks it might not be easy to replace them..

I've had a look around, and found a few good second hand options, and also some others that caught my eye. The second hand ones I was looking at were a fox x pod, and then a few other Quattro's. But then whilst searching I saw the fox eos pod, so quite a few options. Anyone used any of these models?

3 years ago bought a cheap 3 rod alloy pod to fish a water with impossibly hard banks. 3 years later, still using it regularly with no issues. Will take 3 big pit reels. Leeda Rogue pod 59.95 on Amazon right now.

That actually looks okay, nice feature that it can be used as banksticks and a pod, as well as the stabiliser. Will have a look around for one.

Little bit over the £50 but I purchased the Saber Terrain Pod/Banksticks.
If Iím honest I didnít expect them to be of top quality but can safely say I was very surprised.
Excellent bit of kit and purchased by an offer on ebay brand new for £85.
Theyíre that light the postman delivered them by hand!
