Nathan, you're kidding! Rod pods aren't new. They are those frame type rod rests that generally support three rods with buzzers. Every serious specimen angler seems to use one...

You meet all kinds of animal on the riverbank.

I use one regularly as most disabled pegs are platforms and as you can't hammer rod rests through wood, the pod is ideal.

Just to point out that at Wingham the platforms deliberately have slats so that you can use bank sticks (umbrellas too) rather than a pod.

 

Pods have the advantage that you haven't got to bang banksticks into hard ground. However, many anglers (including me) hate them as you can't point your rods at the bait. This means that you don't always notice small knocks as they get absorbed by the angle at the rod top. Additionally, this angle creates resistance and fish, perch especially, will often drop the bait as a result.

 

My advice, especially if funds are tight, is to spend the money on something else unless you absolutely need a pod for the swims you're fishing.
