These have been designed to be used as Bank side Markers or as distance Sticks. 20” long in two versions- Titanium with Stainless Augers or Carbon with Solid Titanium Points. The large white Head sections have been designed to not only be highly visible, but also to provide a handle to help fitting the Sticks into the ground, the is even an Isotope Chamber in the top accessible via removing the Stainless Grub Screw (15x3mm Isotope Size)
I originally designed these for my own use, to combat the problem of close range fishing to a far bank, when all you see at night is a huge black wall of foliage with being at close range; I used to use Beer tins with reflective Tape around them as markers for years – but these are a little bit more refined, and made to last.
Providing a highly visible marker night or day, shown in what is normally a 30ft high, black featureless wall of Bushes and Tree's at night.
Titanium or Carbon version Price = £15.00 each + Postage
New for 2017, this latest version has removable Solid Carbon Posts of a one piece design, very strong, also very light weight - even when fitted with the tallest 5” Posts, the whole Rod Stay only weighs in at a mere70 grams.
Fitted with 4” or 5” tall Posts as standard to allow fitment to all known popular Alarms, the Posts are removable via the use of an Allen Key in the base, Posts are also now available separate (So if you change your Alarms and need shorter or longer Posts, you only need to buy 2x Posts in the length you require)
The 4mm thick Laser cut Stainless Steel Base Plates are fitted with MPS Quick Release fittings as Standard. If used with the addition of 2BA Stem Adaptors, you can up-grade Indicator systems that still use a primitive screw thread attachment, to the 360 degree self aligning, instant release/fitment that has been incorporated in MPS Indicators for over 14 years.

MKII Digging Stick
A new up-to-date version of the original Digging Stick now made from the very best materials possible. Starting at the A4 Stainless Steel Auger incorporating a “proper” screw thread, that is fitted via a 4 stage fitting process (Pressed, Bonded, Pinned, and then Crimped – they don’t drop out!) into the main Shaft, which is made from Military Grade ½” Titanium. The Stainless Top fitting has a removable Tommy Bar incorporated into the design, which is locked in place by a Solid Titanium Thumb Screw.
Now the clever bit –to prevent the Solid Carbon removable Tommy Bar being misplaced, it is stored inside the Digging Stick’s main Body. You just remove the Thumb Screw and tip upside down, the 9” long Tommy Bar will then drop out.
# Reg. Design
Total Weight = 136 Grams
Total Length = 121/2”
To use just hold vertically and turn Clockwise, applying gentle down pressure at the same time, let the Auger do the work for you, no need for brute force. If the Auger will not Screw into the ground, then try another location.
* If the ground is so full of Rocks it's impossible to even make a pilot hole for Bank Sticks, I suggest you use the sensible alternative “A Pod type System “rather than wasting your time trying to use separate Bank Sticks.

At last a compact Multi- Purpose mounting Kit, that can be used as a Stabilizer, Platform Mounting or even a Pod Anchor at will. Made completely from Solid Stainless Steel except the pair of Thumb Screws, which are made of Solid Titanium as you would expect from MPS. So there's nothing to corrode, or coatings to get scratched.

The 4” Solid S/less Spike for the Stabilizer, is the “Proper Job” being 10mm in diameter its impossible to bend or break.
The stability achieved when used as a Platform mounting for Bank Sticks, even shocked me- shown mounted on a Railway Sleeper in the Photo, which I then picked up off the deck using just the Bank Stick/Mounting as the handle, and the Mounting did not even flinch!

Mounting Bushes are a very simple little device to prevent Trident Fantails, Panthers, Tigers or Hobbit Systems from moving about when used on Wooden Platforms. Ideally used in pairs, you just slide over the Point or Auger of the outer pair of TBN's, then position your set up as required. Hold the Mounting in position, remove the TBN, then fit a small Wood screw through the centre with a Screw Driver. Re-fit the TBN into the Mounting, and that's it.
Sold in pairs, either in Black or White, with Screws provided. Weighing a mere 14 grams each, small enough to even be store in your tackle box.
Price £5.00 Per Pair plus Postage
Solid Titanium Buzzer Q/R Fittings
Seven prototypes of various designs were made, but of all the seven, only one version was the “eye catcher!” And this Chunky Solid Titanium version was it.But with being Titanium, weight is not an issue, in fact the Barrel part only weights 32 grams.
To remove/fit your Buzzers, is just a case of undoing the flush fitting Grub Screw in the side of the Barrel with the Allen Key. Flush fit so nothing what so ever protrudes for your line to catch on when Slack lining. Designed to be 100% "Wobble Free" plus unbreakable.
~ Can be fitted with Solid Titanium Thumb Screw Locking for little extra cost as shown RH side of photo.
Stupidly simple to use/fit: The Solid Ti Barrel Screws under your Buzzer with the Indicator Bracket fitted prior, position your Bracket (Hockey Stick as some call them) Then tighten, using the Allen Key provided as a kind of Spanner. The Stainless Steel Inner Stem, then just screws into what ever Bank Ware your using, tighten up via the Allen Key Socket in the Top of the fitting, and that's it.

These are the most powerful Isotopes allowed for civilian use. I only stock 15x3mm White Isotopes, the reason being – to save you money.
White Isotopes will light up any colour Mag Head or Bobbin in the huge range, Only obvious exceptions are solid Black Mag Heads and Basic Bobbins.
*Buying Coloured Isotopes to match your Heads means if you decide to change your Alarms/Indicators colours, you then also have to go and buy new Isotopes as well, with White Isotopes you don't need to this.

I have been using one of these simple little Gauges for over 7 years now, and would be lost without it! The “steps” are in 2mm increments (10,12,14.16,18 & 20mm) you just pick the size of Step to match the Boilie you intend to use on that Rig.
You just thread the Loop of the hair through the hole in the “Step” size you want to match the Boilie diameter, and make your Rig as normal, without having to mess about putting a Boilie on.
For bigger Baits you simply "double the Hair"- by placing the Hair Loop onto the Hook Shank, and then placing the baiting Needle in the loop you have made through the Gauge eg, 20mm step then provides a 40mm long hair!
Knowing that every time you make a Rig, the hair length will be identical to what you require every time.
