Defiant MPS

Buzzer Quick Release Fittings

For 2023 now made with a matching Knurl as used in the Titanium & Carbon Bank stick range, these are one item I will never be without - if you use multiple set ups they allow you to fit and remove Alarms at will without undoing or misaligning anything. Plus with not having to have Alarms permanently fitted or having the problem of trying to align Alarm/Bracket/Buzz Bar, all the unintentional damage to expensive Alarms is eradicated in one go.

Option of Thumb Screw or flush fit Grub Screw locking at no extra cost

Made from solid Stainless Steel with a solid Brass Inner stem

 Complete Buzzer Q/R Fitting 7.50 each + Postage

Spare Brass Inner Stems 2.50 each + Postage


Weigh Bar

There was no skimping on the materials used when I designed these - 3/4" Thick-walled Carbon Fibre main shaft, polished Stainless Steel end caps, then finished off with Gunmetal Stainless Steel central fittings, made 12" wide for ease of use

Digging Stick

Shown screwed into an old solid Tarmac Road, using nothing more than a bit of gentle downward force while spinning clockwise at the same time, letting the hardened A4 Stainless Auger do all the work.
All your doing it making a pilot hole for your Bank Stick to slot into, with the Auger being a slightly lower diameter this automatically makes the hole tapered, allowing any diameter Bank Stick to be inserted and not wobble.

I started making digging sticks way back in the late 90's when Frank Warwick asked if I could design something to help him insert Bank Sticks into rock hard ground. 

There's been numerous versions over the years with the early ones having the Tommy Bar fixed in position, which to be honest was a bit of a pain, as it's a rather awkward shape to store.

The latest 12 1/2" long version has the built-in ability to store the Tommy bar inside the main 1/2" diameter Titanium Shaft.  

Tommy Bar is stored inside the main shaft

Price 17.50 each + Postage

Distance/Marker Poles

Based on the original versions but 191/4" long and made from Solid Stainless Steel now, with the middle section finished with a deep precision knurl to stop the line slipping. Plus the options of Black or White main mountings, with easy to remove Isotope Capsules in many colour options, which can be fitted with standard 15x3mm Isotopes if one wishes. But if fitted with one of the Fluro Capsules there's not really any need as they "glow" when light is shone onto them anyway
