True, but there's no EASY, SIMPLE, and SLOW way to unwind it.
You have to kind of feather it when you take the cap off with the crank socket on it.
Also its not something you'd want to do at the field, because if you accidentally let the cap out too far, that spring will go crazy and get EVERYWHERE. It'd be nice if you could just push in a button and crank backwards to slowly let them out, instead of having to shimmy up the cap, then put the crank socket on then sorta feather it out.
Anyways, I'm with you about having more secure detents. My siloh's detent fell out at the field, and I forgot to bring the spares, it was a total pain trying to feed the pods without that detent. Possible, but you almost definitely need two people then.
