Now on version 3! (Updated photos coming soon) 

A slightly larger redesign, the puck now has room for a ground spike for even more versatility. The leg angles have been optimized for better stability. There is now a weight hanger, so you may add a small weight for even more stability in windy conditions. 

O-Rings in the wells provide even better, more secure retention of the legs. The o-rings are user replaceable.

An honest review by Dan_In_SD on YouTube. 

The center mount is a 3/8-24 stud mount.

Constructed of rugged ABS plastic and printed in the color Orange for better visibility.

Need an adapter for your coax or radio? Maybe a wire winder for all your radials? I sell those too!

You need to provide the legs, counter poise and antenna.

Here is what I find that works well. 

12 ground radials cut to 2.5m works great. 24awg silicone wire works well, is lightweight and flexible.

Legs can be made from any rod, pipe, fiberglass pole that is approximately 3/8" in diameter. See note for further sourcing information.

For length, 24in is good size for portability and stability. Cut to your requirements.


Replacement O-rings on Amazon, 10 pack.

20AWG Silicone Wire for radials, 100ft spool.

3/8 Aluminum Rod, precut to different lengths. McMaster-Carr

Note for sourcing legs:

There are a number of places you can source legs for your puck.

I have provided a link to McMaster-Carr for easy reference, but it's not the only place.

Lowes and Home Depot sell aluminum rod if you are able to cut them.

Additionally, finding a local metal distributor can provide the cheapest cost per foot.

If you want fiberglass rods, driveway markers and tent supports can work if they are the proper size.

Do you have a 3D printer? I make this puck available for free.

Awesome puck. Used the prototype for over 2 months now. No issues to report. Pretty solid. I bought 10mm diameter aluminum tube to make into legs. Works perfectly. The whip i would suggest is the MFJ1979.


This is the best little puck for a quick easy and portable setup. I have taken mine to the top of several mountains. It supports a 17 ft telescoping whip with ease and is light and durable.
