Price Vs. Quality In price vs. quality comparisons, POD outperforms competing products, even some much higher priced ones, by a country mile! Internet photos can not portray the huge difference in quality between POD and competing plastic products. We use only expensive poured aluminum molds to create POD. This means we end up with a far more finished looking and refined product. The differences in quality are easily visible upon close inspection.
The most frequent comments from new POD owners are, "The quality is much higher than I expected", "POD is much larger than I expected", and "POD is a lot stronger than I expected." What we hear most is
"I Love My POD"
