    I have that potbelly for 102's. My ferrules hold my various whips. Just want a light duty spring for ferrule to sit on.

    Here's a video I did with my Little Tarheel where I used the stock whip, one I robbed from my Sirio 5000 which is something like 6ft 4in, and finally a 10ft one....

    Suffice to say it's definitely worth sacrificing 6m and using a much longer one.

    The black spring is a Larsen. I prefer it as it's much more forgiving than the Hustler. Just has 1/4 threads and needs a stud reducer. IMG_20200525_162925271.jpg

    Found a use for my $35 Rigrunner hamfest find. This one is cool because it has two 3 amp USB sockets. IMG_20200526_161542778_HDR.jpg

    I went ahead and bought the WM securement bracket. Runs a rod thru the ‘poles to brackets mounted each end.

    I've never seen that model before. Pretty slick how it locks them. All I've seen/have are the little plastic locking clips.

    Sheet metal little flimsy. Backing plate will tame it, I hope. The Puck is model# 602.
