HOW IT ALL STARTED
The creation of MPS was never planned, it literally just happened. It was way back in the mid 90's when I personally got so fed up with the gear I was using falling to bits, snapping, corroding, the so called "protective coating" just wearing off even flaking off, and generally everything being of a very poor quality - and nothing has changed to the present day, nothing made in China seems to last for very long. I ended up going to the local Scrap Metal Merchants and bought a few bits of Stainless Steel tube, which would slid inside each other, a few days later I had made myself some usable Bank Sticks. Things then just progressed themselves as numerous other local anglers saw what I was using, then asked if I would make some for them as well, the rest is just history as they say!
All products are designed from scratch, prototyped, built, and field tested by me, then handmade here in Lancashire. Built from the very best materials possible for the application - Military Grade Titanium, HD Carbon Fibre and high grade Stainless Steel. Here's a basic factual price/value comparison that anyone can do - Mountaineering Mugs, all three identical just made out of different metals.
Aluminium Mug = £13.49 Stainless Steel Mug = £25.99 Titanium Mug = £49.99
I can guarantee you won't be becoming the 4th "Mug" by buying an MPS product, you truly are getting excellent value for money with none pee taking prices!
Most products are made on a almost weekly basis, with the only exception being the Trident style range (Fantail's, Panther's & Tiger's) which are all "Commissioned" to be built via waiting lists with each one being hand built specific to customer requirements within the build parameters. Obviously the demand is very high due to the in-built uniqueness plus being truly built to last a long, long time. Everything is truly Handmade, which means if asked I will quite happily hand engrave my signature on anything I viably can, anyone else in the tackle trade who quotes "Handmade" should be able to do just the same OR someone is telling you porkies!

~ With everything being truly hand made to no set in stone sizes (Not mass produced) It's obviously impossible to provide Bags/Cases for anything, but Andy Marshall will happily make anything you wish if given the specifications 07866 687092 firstname.lastname@example.org
~ Widths of Buzz Bars/Tridents/Chassis: The easiest way of finding out how wide you require something to be made is to lay your Rods out as you like them on top of a couple of chair backs or similar, and then measure the distance between the Centres of the Rods. For 2 rod 6" or 8" is the most popular, for 3 Rods 14", 16" or 18" wide centres so the Reels don't clash or even worse the middle Rod gets trapped in the middle of the night.
