Hi all.

I'd posted earlier in the week about a Preston to Matrix adapter that I couldn't really resolve, so I'm looking for some more help please.

My pole roost normally sits on my LHS, but with the fitting issue sits on the seat box main legs and across the side tray which isn't ideal.

I'd like to put it on my right, where all I have is a pole sock for shipping back, but again I'm loathe to put it on the box legs. It'll be right in my 'flight path' when I get off the box, and I'm so clumsy I can see huge problems.

Ideally I want something to give a bit of distance away from me for the top kit roost, which then goes over to a free standing maver roost.

So far the only way I can see to do this is with an outrigger arm and screw thread and buy a screw in top kit support..

What Im really after is a arm that will fit onto my round seat box leg at one end, but fit into the matrix roost bar on the other.


I appreciate this isn't exactly the biggest problem to have in the world! But with my history of breaking gear the more compact and organised I am the better 😉

Cheers

Have you looked at the Preston Offbox 36 Spacer Bar. I use one to keep my Preston Offbox 36 Standard Kit Safe away from the sidetray on the LHS.

I bought a couple of frenzee roosts, I put one on a cheap tripod that I bought off amazon for £12. The other one is attached to a maver accessory arm that fits on my seatbox leg. Holds 6 topkits & can be placed on any leg if I need to use a brolly or the bankside doesn't suit a particular position

Ironically I had looked at this, but forgot about it.. Definitely worth a look

Just remembered.. The Spacer looks great, but the square insert isn't compatible with my matrix roost... Unless I get a Preston roost attachment of course

Why not put it on the right rear leg and have it pointing back along the same line as your pole? Obviously lower down so it is not in the way of shipping in/ out. I do this and have no issues at all.
