I've seen that too with the adaptor part.
Luckily I have a big vice and I popped the stem top and bottom with a center punch a few times like a bad knurling job and re-pressed them back together.
You shouldn't have to. I agree..

The extending bankstick has to be done up proper tight and so does the adaper female end...
They aren't Solar or Gardner quality...but they aren't the price either.

I like rock and roll.........just not in a pod..

I think you must have picked up a faulty one pal. Iíve been using mine a while and donít recognise those problems.

I got the wychwood pocket pod in alloy and it's shyte.

Main stems were just glued into the block so they came off. Had to glue them back. Tops came off the stems. Had to glue those back. Useless with an extending bankstick for the middle because it wobbles about too much so needs a solid one. Wychwood no longer make the 12mm sticks that match them.

I use sticks with matrix piledriver for tough ground. Easier, quicker, more solid

5 minutes to set up ainít a long time when In the past Iíve managed to screw up every type of bank stick available during the eighties. Bought a gardner pod as a kid never looked back, I get the single stick thing and if need be I can set up a two rod and single set up easily enough from the pods 4 legs and buzz bars.

Even when I cycled to the lake I carried a sod pod.

They are a great pod..
I bought a used one
I got it cheap compared to what most pay for a used one.
It was still 3 times the initiator of this topic's budget though..

I rarely use it ..
Too Heavy...
Takes too long to set up and pack away.

It's the best pod I've got for snag fishing locked up with the rods sideways on though.
Doubt owt else could match it..

Too many where I go buy stuff just to show off to the rest of the Clampetts..
Hundreds on rods/reels ,bivvies and alarms....Oh and now baitboats...

They haven't a clue about rigs or bait unfortunately.
One who's been a carp angler for years thought a flock of Black Headed gulls were Gooseanders FFS.

I have exclusively used my world wide since 2005. Just a great bit of kit. Extremely versatile.

Wow lots of suggestions on this one!

For me it is as some other people have already said, I often find getting my bank sticks in limits me to a swim with soft ground etc. I also think putting them in properly can be really noisy at times if the ground is tough, the vibrations etc. has to be spooking fish in my mind.

When I say mobile I probably also mean a bit quieter and lighter in general.

My mate has the Cygnet pod that I think's been mentioned on here and that looked pretty decent, although some of the other ones look like they could almost be clones of each other. Has anyone got one that is described as 'featherweight' or something similar to that? Whilst that sounds ideal in regards to mobility I can't help but shake this mental image of a savage take tearing the thing in to the lake!

I have a nice stainless set up I made like that.
The adaptors were not NGT though...Bison they call them.(BISON TELESCOPIC POCKET ROD POD ADAPTERS - STAINLESS STEEL OR CARBON ) on Ebay.
The NGT legs/short banksticks are OK ish..some I sent back..locking toggles all up in a heap...they're cheap.
I pulled the uprights out of the adaptors and shortened them and pressed them back in.
2p coin with the rim flattened a fraction makes a great tool for getting the slothead screw proper,proper tight which you do need to do on the extension bankstick to stop rocking.
Sound set up...goes in a jacket pocket.
Wychwood do an ally set and a stainless set in a custom roll bag..not too expensive..
I use the ally set for piking with a haversack and longish walks to very rocky shorelines.

The shorter the uprights are, the better IMO.
All those adaptors would be much better if the threads for the legs were splayed out further apart.
The angle is too narrow with longer legs if you want max stability.

Lots of places I go you cannot get a bankstick in and pods are necessary.
