Defiant MPS Indicators

 

 

  

 

 

The whole Indicator range uses exactly the same British 2BA Threaded Stud for the Mag Head fitment, and the same identical Collet Type “Push Fit” Fitting for the  Indicator fitment, that’s incorporated into the Stainless Bracket, allowing 360 degree rotation for instant self alignment of the Indicator.

 

Universal Bob-Weights: Will fit the full range of MPS Flexible Arm Type Indicators. The Warlock Range of Rigid Arm Type Indicators use special  Disc type add-on weights.

 

Isotopes: The whole range of Mag Heads fitted, can be fitted with 15x3mm Isotopes as standard (Available in the Accessory section)

 

 

 

 Maintenance 

As with all metal moving parts used in an out-door application, exposed to all kinds of weather conditions, it’s wise to Oil Mag Head Line Clips and Indicator's Ball Joints to ensure many years of faultless service. Only a Drop of Engine or All-In-One Oil is required a couple of times a year.

 

Quick Release Fittings: as with all things used outdoors- will need a clean every so often. If you don’t hear a “Click” when fitting the Indicator’s Stem fitting, give the inside of the Barrel fittings a good blast of WD40 or similar, to remove any accumulated dirt.







Flexible Arm Style Indicator Range

 Banshee, HG Banshee, Scorpion, Harrier & Hawk Hangers







The Banshee Hanger



The Banshee was the 2nd Indicator I designed (The Scorpion being the first) way back in 2003, and to this day it’s still the best all-round Indicator I have ever used, I still use a set for 99% of my own fishing be it for Carp, Pike, Tench, and Cats.  

The woven 1.5mm 316 Stainless Chord has proved to be faultless with a breaking strain of over 80kg, and once set into a “U” shape becomes windproof – you don’t get the annoying “Bleeps” as you do with Chain style Indicators, as they wave about in a totally uncontrolled fashion with just a slight breeze.


Made in two standard versions with 6” or 9” long Chords, and fitted with any version of the Mag Head range.


 Complete Unit =  £16.50 + Postage  





Banshee Chords Only 


The Banshee Chords are also available separately in both 6” and 9” lengths. Can be fitted with the standard 2BA threaded Barrel fitting at one and MPS Quick release Stem fitting the other, OR with 2BA threaded Barrel fittings at each end.

 

Chord Only = £6.00 each + Postage





The HG Banshee (Heavy Gauge)




The HG Banshee is the most powerful Indicator I could possibly make without causing damage to the main line. It was specifically designed for fishing at long range and snag fishing – it’s a real “No mercy” indicator, it’s that powerful when you get a pick up the lead comes flying back towards you several feet and the Rod “Shakes” in the Alarm most cases, regardless of range! 

But I do know a well known angler whose forward thinking - gave them a try close in with the Rod tips set as close to the lake bed as possible, the result was almost every take landed, they never got the chance to play about with the bait, as once the lead was dislodged it was too late.

Only the HS Mag Head versions can cope with the extreme tension, and it is wise to fit a Line clip to the Rod or position the Butt Ring just above the Mag heads position to get the Chord into a nice “U” Shape.

Unlike the old Springer Style Indicators which snap the Carbon Tension Rods for fun!  The Heavy Gauge 316 Stainless Chord cannot be broken.

HG Banshee Chords Only

 

The HG Banshee Chords are also available separately, and can be fitted with the standard 2BA threaded Barrel fitting at one and MPS Quick release Stem fitting the other, OR with 2BA threaded Barrel fittings at each end.


Price Chord Only £6.00 each + Postage





The Scorpion Hanger




The Scorpion was the very first Indicator I ever designed; with the concept being developed in the late 90’s to overcome a specific angling situation were tension was needed to enhance the Indication at range, fishing tight up to a Jetty made from RSJ Girders, and in the process ended up making a truly versatile Indicator that can be used as an-


Windproof Hanger


Tensioned Springer for range or Snag Fishing


If fitted with a MKII Style Mag Head - can even be set to Slackline




Fitted with any of the Mag Head Range as standard, the MKII version introduced June 2018 is now fitted with Solid Carbon Tension Rods as standard that fit inside the longer, slimmer, more flexible Stainless Steel Chord.





Price Complete Unit = £18.50 each + Postage




 

Price Scorpion Chord Only = £8.50 each + Postage





The Harrier Hanger



The Harrier Hanger is a Chain style Indicator with a difference, as the Chain used is more of a Honeycomb profile, allowing the wind to pass more easily through the links thus reducing the tendency to move, the 6” long 316 Stainless Chain is also very supple (as shown in the photo) Ideally fitted with a 32x10mm, 32mm x 1/2"  or MKII Mag Heads.


Price Complete Unit = £18.50 + Postage


Price Harrier Chain Only = £8.50 each + Postage





The Hawk Hanger 



 

The Hawk Hanger is a Chain style Indicator with options of 2”, 4”, 6” or 8” long Chains fitted as standard. 

The Stainless Steel Chain used is of welded Link construction – you won’t have one of these snap. Can also be fitted with any off version of the Mag Head range.

The Warlock  Range of  Indicators and the "Twitcher"






4" Short Arm Warlock with a 32x15mm HS Mag Head fitted


This brand new range Warlocks has taken many years of testing & messing around to develop, to provide a range to suit anyone’s requirements. All four versions were designed from scratch to utilise the new unique way of adding-subtracting weight.


~ Fully self aligning, via the 360degree Quick Release Stem fitting (Normally a real pain with Long Arm Indicators)


~ All have twin precision made Pivoting Joints, allowing for a smooth precise movement in either direction, with zero "Wobble" to cause problems in the wind.


~None have Sliding weights, adding weight is via fitment of 2 gram Shims directly were they have the most effect – in exactly the same axis as the Mag Heads pivot point. Only slight amounts of added weight are required to have a desired effect.


~ Can be fitted with any of the Mag Head range, but personally I would not fit “Tall Boys” (To Tall)  or 32x20mm HS mag Heads (Just a bit over-kill)


~ A full set of seven, 2gram Shim Weights are “Given” (FOC) with any Complete Warlock or just Arm alone purchased, that’s with any of the four versions.


~ In the three straight Arm versions, you have the option of Solid Titanium or Solid Carbon Shafts fitted at no extra cost







Three straight Arm versions are made as standard in sizes

 4" Short       7" Medium       11" Long

(Distance between pivot points)






With the option of Solid Titanium or Solid Carbon Shafts







"Rotary" Arm version with solid Titanium shaped Shaft, fitted with 32x15mm HS Mag Head


The “Rotary” version is a bit special, it’s taken the concept of the original Rotary’s design and enhanced it. The Shaped Solid Titanium Shaft is designed to force the line to make more contact with the Alarms Roller or Sensor.


All modern Bite Alarms rely on one thing to work- the  transfer of the movement of the line via “Friction” be it to move a revolving Roller, or to rub against a Sensor.

All’s fine when dry and you have maximum possible transfer of movement via the friction between the Line and the Roller/Sensor.  But add rain, frost or ice into the equation and that’s when the old “Sat behind your Rods, one Rod suddenly hoops around, Indicator whacks against the Rod, Clutch starts screaming- and not a single Bleep out of the alarm!”

The Rotary’s unique design was developed after masses of experimentation to force the line into the Alarm’s Roller/Sensor, to maximise as much transfer of movement via friction as possible in all weather conditions.





Examples: 14grams (x7 fitted) and  6grams (x3 fitted) 

Unique Shim Type Weight system

 Providing precise adjustment in 2 gram increments

all four versions = £20.00 each + Postage

 


 

 

Warlock Arm only


all four versions = £12.00 each + Postage















The "Twitcher"





The “Twitcher” is nothing like any other indicator, as it’s designed to have a pre -set limited arc of movement, with really only two ways to set it-

Horizontal for most normal fishing situations, or allowed to drop and settle to its lowest point to “Slackline”

Fitted with a 32x15mm HS Mag Head as standard, they can be fitted with the Universal Bob Weights for when a bit extra weight is needed.
