    Thanks mate! I was looking for something like this. I was chatting to a bloke on the bank the other day and he was using one of these and recommended it as a good basic pod.

    Seems it's very similar if not almost the same as another famous make

    Fox Stalker Pod Thompson pod

    Can anyone spot the differences other than price?

    Arrived today, not have a chance to get it out and look properly but at a glance it looks a nice bit of kit. Nice big padded bag. Once the missus has gone to bed I sneak down to the shed and have a better look.
    What was awesome was the FOX warrior micron alarm that mysteriously appeared at the bottom of the box among other things I ordered.

    i had a similar pod to this for years and frankly i hated it. it was far to high of the ground and the bobbins swung like mad in the slightest breeze causing my bite indicators to sound like an orchestra on warm up

    Awsome!

    I've had a play with mine and it looks good. It's stable and easy to set up. You can get the rods pretty low with this pod by lowering the uprights. I won't bother with the cross bar as I'm only using two rods at relatively close range and one of those is a float rod.
