. . .apols but most people that waffle on about the benefits of single sticks are reading a script . . .the vast majority of single stick users on UK waters I've ever seen don't split them up pointing directly at the spots they're fishing - they're lined up neatly 102.45mm apart to ensure their folded handles are kissing. . .which means it would have been quicker and less disturbance to use a pod

I will upgrade to the new jag pod in due time . For me the versatility to be able to take an alarm off easily makes it a no brainer.

In my opinion you can beat single sticks where possible and with the new jag pod itís easy to achieve

You dont need to set it up on the bank to see its more versatile. You can tell just buy putting them side by side. I dont carp fish anymore so I wont be looking at them on the bank any time soon. One day the bug might return so you never know they might get an outing on the bank sometime in the future.

Ive goty the RP1, had the nano/micro and the super compact before that

Personally I wasnt a fan of the micro/nano apart from the packdown size - I personally found that the uprights wouldnt lock unless you got the allen key out and youd get twist if fishing locked up and i didnt think it looked as nice as the others

The Super compact I really liked im a fan of goalpost set up anyway so couldnt grumble and it looked ace - I also liked to use it as a 2 rod set up with uprights so its a versatile piece of kit

The RP1 for me does everything - packs down small and isnt a faff to set up - the uprights ensure that its sturdy and I can take out the middle sections and fish a tarty 2 rod set up easy

I have both and love both!!! my excuse is I'm keeping the nano pod for my lad where in reality I'm not selling it as I like both...
I've got the nano wit 2 x nevs on 2+1 for days and fishing a canal basin I drop onto and I leave my delkims on the rp-1 for session fishing....
No sense I know having 2 pods but I'm mortgage free,no debts,kids and mrs want for nothing...we both work hard,so why not? like the 9ft se

Two totally different pods. The rp1 is more versatile than the nano and can be used as single sticks and quicker to set up. Ive got the 316 rp1 and its a lovely pod but recently bought the new solar universal pod and that is superb. Its a bit more fiddly to set up than the rp1 but its much more versatile and will cover everything. I always thought solar were playing second fiddle to jag in the quality of there machining and finish but they have definitely caught them up now with there new range of pods. If i had to sell one it would be my rp1 which shows you how much i rate the universal.

I've just test driven my new Jag Mk2 Super Compact Adjustable - yes its effectively a skinny quattro but the adjustability is great (decent rod splay) and means I can get good distance between big reels . . .looked at the RP1 at a recent show and whilst def quicker to set up is small and a bit limited IMO . . .unless you are constantly swopping between 2 and 3 rod limit waters . . .

That's why I said fortunate and not lucky. Lots of people work their balls off, but due to unavoidable circumstances are not able to have a large disposable income. Not a criticism of you or anyone else. People have the right to spend their hard earned on anything they like.

You must stay in doors I canít imagine with your attitude youíd have any teeth left if you tried human interaction 😂 every side of the bed must be wrong for you dear lol.

If someone wants to spend that money itís entirely their business to do so. Is it overpriced? Yes but so is a high end car. A decent telly etc. Itís called being an upmarket brand and to be fair to them the customer service is spot on and you only need to buy the gear once.

However not all people like it, and thatís fine, there are plenty of brands to accommodate people of varying budgets.

I work hard for my money, if I want to spend it on jag, or a nice bottle of rum, or treat my test team to a social, or buy someone an expensive gift or spa day etc thatís totally up to me. And should not emotionally distress you.

I truly hope you find a bit of peace and maybe consider taking a break from the forum it only seems to wind you up x

Who gives a toss where it's made? Do you check your veg to make sure it's grown in the uk? Grow up if your that simple minded. And I can 100% say that £450 of bait be it sweetcorn or your best mates bait company is gonna catch me more fish than 450 silly quid spent on a let's face it a fashionable I have money to waste pod??? We all like nice stuff so buy a nice car not something you put by a lake and **** of over... Jag porn say it all

I'd say you are fortunate in that you can afford expensive gear like jag. You probably have enough disposable income to buy whichever bait you like. Not everyone is in that position. But what you need and like within your own budget, but get your priorities right. Good bait will catch you more fish than an expensive pod, when compared to poor bait and a cheap pod. In fact it could be said a pod or indeed any rod rest is not essential. Some kind of bait or lure is.

Some people have an eye for quality and unfortunately some donít at the end of the day itís what there happy with

Does it do anything more than a £50 / £100 pod? I don't think so il keep my 50 quid fox pod for when I use a pod... Seen a few bits of Jag gear on the bank and I don't see what the big deal is? Rather spend it on something useful like bait than a stand for some rods

Look through the previous thread on here and i did a quick review of mine.

For me its suits what i require from a pod with its versatility. For other it may not be the one.

The build quality appears to be second to none and now i have used it a few times i really like it and even though its a expensive bit of kit i will probably not be buying another pod for a good while yet.

They are a lovely pod and beautifully engineered. I havent used mine and probably never will as I dont carp fish anymore but its a really nice pod. Its relatively cheap compared to my solar universal pod as that works out at £620 with the new captive buzz bars which you dont need with the rp1 so works out a bit cheaper. I paid £395 for the 316 version. A lot of people must think it is worth it though as jag said on there fb page that they have never seen demand like it and are flat out making more.

Its like anything else really, are the new tech mags worth £600 each, personally i don't think any of it is worth the price they charge for it. At the end of the day its a pod to rest your rods on thats it and you can do that for a lot less money. Jag know people will pay it as carp fishing these days is probably more about how good your set up looks than actually catching fish.

£440 ❗
Are they really that good ❓
They look the business and quick to set up, but £440.
I know I don't need to buy one but are they that good ❓
