I am using the pod for the first time today and I think it's broken already there seems to be a large split running all the way along the middle section that extends the pod lengthways. All I have done is extend it and tighten it up. I did not go mad either I just nipped it up I'm gutted I love the pod but it looks like I'll be sending it back.

I went for the solar p1 in then end after watching the the YouTube videos. I like the amount of adjustment you have with it compared to the summit tackle one I also like the ratchet style micro adjustments on the legs plus I think it looks the nuts lol.

Thatís not an issue Iíve had personally, but obviously somethings going on with your set up, the guys at jag are super helpful. Iíd say give them a call in case you have something thatís not right.

I can set my pod up easily and pick it up and move it around without anything falling off! So something is different with yours.

The screws don't fall off, they are no loss as you say, but the bank sticks do, the adjustable buzz bars come loose etc etc

How ever tight I try to screw them in, they are never secure/locked and easily loosen just by moving or trying to adjust the pod.
Its like tighten one, another comes loose and so on......... a loosing battle and maybe why they need to have no loss screws!

I found my jag black pod to be excellent. Really compact and versatile

Similar experience, impossible to really tighten the knurled screws. They forever keep coming loose and everything comes loose or falls off.

I am starting to lean towards the solar I have been searching around and Johnson Ross are selling them for £349 including 3 rod fixed buzzbars.
