I use to have dual 5 footers on my truck, then I was driving, my mount came loose and one of them fell off. Shitty day, when shit like that happens.

yeah I can see where that would ruin a day, Mine were cheap, So it wasn't too big of a deal. I just recently bought a 4 foot fire stick, I heard there good. Just have to buy a new coax, then I can try it out.

i wasn't trying to be a dick. it really was a riveting tale, i've had things fall off on my way to classes too, it sucks. a pic is worth a thousand words, after all.... so i saved the effort of typing.

Mag mounts are best suited for cars. Man up and switch to a Firestick or Whip.
