Defiant MPS






The Black Panther






Built to exactly the same specifications as the Trident Panther but made from very heavy duty Carbon Fibre instead of Titanium. Fitted with 3 x 81/2" & 3 x 11" CBN Type Carbon/Titanium Bank Sticks, the Chassis fittings are made of Stainless Steel to add weight and a low centre of gravity - an absolutely critical requirement for stability. As with all with all Trident versions no Buzz Bars are required, thus there are zero limitations to how it can be set up be it in levelling up, angling the set up or being used as individual Bank Sticks, and if you needed to raise the front or rear end for some unique situation- a couple of Over-fits simply slid onto the outer Bank Sticks adds an extra 12" of adjustable height instantly.




The Chassis extends to 43" long and has a closed length of 26" 


Made in 10" 11" 12" 13" 14" 15"or 16" widths as standard, the standard Centre Shaft extends to 43" long - so you not condemned to practically having your Reels, Indicators and Alarms all jammed into each other


Weight = 1.163 Kg (16"-16" wide version)








Most Customers split Tridents into three separate parts -  2 x Built Up Cross Shafts and the Centre Shaft, then store the Cross Shafts complete inside their Bed chairs and the Centre Shaft in their Rod Holdall, by doing this set up time just a matter of just a few seconds (under 5 seconds - I've times myself)

Carbon  Fantail 




Thanks to the use of thick walled Carbon Fibre the assembly is just as ridged as a Titanium C Type Fantail on which it is based upon -
 with 21" Tie-Bars, width options of  either 13" 14" 15"or 16" wide Cross Shafts, fitted with 81/2" & 11" CBN Type Bank Sticks as standard, the example shown has full Grub Screw locking but could also have Thumb Screws locking or even a mix of both. As with all with all Trident versions no Buzz Bars are required, thus there are zero limitations to how it can be set up be it in levelling up, angling the set up or being used as individual Bank Sticks.




The whole lot weighs in at  just 1,209 grams, when you consider the sheer size and the amount of material used it's amazing - but that's only due to using the very best materials possible, the massive footprint combined with six points of contact with the ground  make the whole set up incredibly stable, it's pretty much impossible for one to fall over.

CBN Type Bank Sticks



CBN's are identical to TBN's but instead of having a Titanium outer and inner shafts, the outers are very high quality thick walled Carbon Fibre, with solid Carbon Fibre inner shafts.
The fittings are made from solid Titanium which had proved to be the perfect combination for the Carbon, it's no coincidence that both materials are also the most expensive by a rather large margin. You used to "get what you paid for" in days of old in the case of TBN's & CBN's you still do - there's no cheap materials like Ally present.



81/2"long adjustable to 12 1/2" long    weight  = 71 grams 

11" long adjustable to 17 1/2" long      weight = 82 grams


Two Locking options - flush fit Grub Screw or Spring loaded Stainless Thumb Screws






81/2" CBN  = 22.50 each + Postage


11" CBN = 25.00 each + Postage
