Defiant MPS

Distance/Marker Poles

Based on the original versions but 191/4" long and made from Solid Titanium 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

Titanium Storm Poles

The problem with Storm Poles has always been - make them to thick a diameter and they are a nightmare to get into the ground and also weigh a ton, make them to thinner diameter- they go into the ground much easier but also become very prone to bending while doing so with becoming so weak.  

Now these ones I've designed from scratch made out of  Titanium eradicated all the problems, there not going to be cheap obviously but if used sensibly these will last a lifetime - they are not a disposable item like the ones made from cheap Aluminium were your lucky to get 12 months use out of them.

The solid Titanium inner shaft locates inside the main stainless steel fitting, made to very close tolerances into the outer Titanium tube, by doing this once the Tommy Bar is fitted through both - the outer and inner become one, dramatically increasing the strength but also allowing the diameter to remain thinner (The same diameter as TBN Bank Sticks) 

* I could have fitted Solid Carbon Inner Shafts to reduce the weight, but then I would have been making a substandard product that wobbles like a jelly!

The single Spring loaded T Grip Thumb Screw locks the inner shaft with very little effort required, due to the internal tolerances of the solid Titanium shaft

Fitted with "Proper" solid Stainless Steel Augers, these will happily Screw into just about any type of ground with ease when combined with a Tommy Bar

Buzzer Quick Release Fittings

They should really be called "Alarm Savers!" as by fitting them you instantly eliminate the two main causes for Alarms getting broken.
The alignment of Alarms and Indicator Brackets is now a simple stress free operation - the Barrel fitting with the Indicators Bracket above it aligns the Bracket and locks it in place, the solid Brass Inner Stem fits and locks into what ever your mounting the Alarm on to, providing instant fitment and alignment of the Alarm

The end of struggling to align anything,  also no need to leave  Alarms fitted onto Bank Sticks & Buzz Bars -  just asking to get whacked and damaged

Available in two versions - Solid Stainless Steel or Solid Titanium, with the added option of Thumb Screw or Grub Screw locking at no extra cost

Complete Solid Stainless Steel Buzzer Q/R Fitting £7.50 each + Postage

Complete Solid Titanium Buzzer Q/R Fitting £10.00 each + Postage

Spare Solid 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 central fittings

12" wide  for ease of use

Price   £21.50 each  + Postage

Digging Stick

Shown screwed into a 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 121/2" long version has the built in ability to store the Tommy bar inside the main 1/2" diameter Titanium Shaft.  

Tommy Bar stored inside

Stainless Stabilizer

Just a basic single Spike Stabilizer made from Stainless Steel, with a removable Spike 

Will fit TBN's CBN's, Titanium Storm Poles, Solid Titanium plus many others

Price = £10.00 each + Postage


Titanium Over-Fits are a simple cost effective way off adding extra length to Bank Sticks at will.  Also useful for “Jacking Up” the front end of Fantail's, Panthers and Trident Tiger's for when you need your rods up in the air, also excellent for adding extra length to Bank Sticks when required rather than carrying loads of different length Bank Sticks.

Made 12” long as standard

Shown fitted to a Trident Fantail



Cost = £17.50 each + Postage





Indicator Stem Adaptors



These allow any Indicator with a standard 2BA British Thread to be fitted to MPS Quick Release Indicator Fittings



 £4.50 for a set of 3 + Postage



 Bush Mountings




 Bush Mountings are a very simple little device to prevent Trident 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  Bank Sticks, then position your set up as required. Hold the Mounting in position, remove the TBN, then  fit a small wood screw through the centre via a screw driver. re-fit the Bank Stick 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 £5.50 Per Pair     plus Postage




Solid Titanium Alarm Spacers 

The examples shown are 4" long, but are made in many lengths at request out of Solid Titanium with Solid Brass Threads, prices depend on the length
