Hi folks was considering buying some aluminum flat bar and a spare head to modify my tripod into a 4 rod tripod, do you think the tripod would still be stable with 4 rods....i would only be using the 4 rods on clean to mixed ground, 2 x flattie fanatics on the outside and 2 14ft beachcasters inside to try for something bigger ie rays. I would like to hear from anyone who can say how doable this would be and if there's any potential pitfalls or plus points of this setup

cheers

Oh thats not a bad idea at all bud, I was going to put them in a row of the top of the tripod but your idea is so much more simple bud and better the way it spaces out the rods. Thanks very much bud

Sorry mate . I ment I don’t like the v tops . Do they do any different tops . ? But like the idea of fitting a rest to the leg like Jordan has done .

Sorry mate my bad, the golds ain't v tops, worded it wrong, they are same as the existing heads as in jordans link, can't see any diff tops bud, i got the leg rests also and are a handy bit of kit, even if u ain't using more than 2 rods, easier to set ya rods up and saves rods from getting buggered on the floor!

I've tried using a longer bar to spread 3 rods out as I found they were too close together with the standard bar,which was good,but did cause some twisting about.I used the top mount shown in the previous link,just had to drill a hole for it,and used sliding cup,from fleabay for the butt,works really well.I've also got the other cup shown in the link,but only use that to rest the rod in when baiting up etc. as I find 4 rods a bit much !HTH.:thumbsup:

Thanks fella:thumbsup: Sadly too far for a days fishing, but looks the kind of place you could spend a week camping on the beach, luxury:)
The reason I bought the shelter mate. Gonna head down there very early one Saturday morning and come back on a the Sunday afternoon probably.
