Mighty MountReview by Gary Q
Great mount but could use better screwsReview by Jeffrey C
Extremely solid mount to the stakehole.
No holes needed to be drilled.
Poor quality fasteners supplied with the kit.
I mounted a 102" SS whip and 6" pot belly spring using this mount. SWR was an instant 1.3:1 across the whole band.
Overall a 4.5 rating.
This is my 3rd FIRESTIK mount that I've owned. The mount works as I expected, based on prior FIRESTIK products. I am supporting a 108" antenna on a 2" x2" mount. There is no flex at all. The mount is solid. I made several minor adjustments to the mount during installation. FIRESTIK has apparently done some cost cutting over the years since my last purchase. The SS screws supplied obviously came from the lowest bidder. The SS screws failed while LOOSENING the mount. 3 of the 4 stripped during removal.
Better quality screws were purchased at a local hardware store. This also required retapping the lower plate. The same sheet of directions must be supplied with all of their mounts. The pictures on them were not exactly like the kit I received. I also had a couple of parts that were not shown in the directions.
I give this mount a 4.5 simply because of the poor quality screws supplied. Now that I've installed this mount, I'm certain that I won't experience any difficulty with future mounts. I do recommend this mount to anyone with a pick-up truck. (Written 5/13/2010) (Posted on January 2, 2012)
