Defiant MPS





Defiant MPS Indicator Range


You will find below a large range of purpose made Indicators, made from the best materials possible and more importantly made to last - and last a long time going off the age of many sets in use today (Over 20 years old and still preforming as when new)

All utilise exactly the same Quick Release fitting and Bracket, that was designed for instant fitment/removal and more importantly 360 degrees of rotation to allow instant, easy Indicator alignment, via the Stem fitting that's standard in every Indicator  in the range also.


All can be fitted with any Mag Heads as they all have the same 2BA thread at the head end, but certain sizes are better suited to certain Indicators








The Merlin Indicator




The design of the Merlin came about totally by chance while messing around designing various options for a Drop-Off Indicator for Pike Anglers, turned out to be probably one of the best Indicators I’ve ever designed!  The action of it can only be described as “Fluid” with the Stainless Steel Chord being extremely flexible and only adds a very slight bit of tension on the line once set in the ideal "U" shape. Once set it this position it become practically  totally windproof, you don't get all the annoying false bleeps as primitive Chain/Chord type indictors constantly suffer from.



Can be fitted with any Mag Head from the huge range, but I’ve found the 32mm x ½” size to be the ideal size for the Merlin

Merlin Stainless Flexi Chord Only = £6.00 each + Postage
















The Scorpion Hanger





The Scorpion was the very first Indicator I ever designed way back in the late 90's, as I needed a Indicator that I could add extreme tension onto for fishing at 80 yards range tight to a Jetty made out of RSJ girders at a power station reservoir, it worked a treat with me reaping the rewards on a day only water.

 Scorpion's utilise a progressive spring type tension which is far superior than relying on gravity via add-on weights, the reason being added weight is a none variable weight, with a Scorpion when you get a take the tension force increases as the arm moves towards the Alarm, with drop backs the opposite happens with the tension taking up any slack line instantly, 

The hollow Stainless Steel Flexi-Arm only adds a very slight bit of tension on the line once set in the ideal "U" shape when not fitted with any tensioning Rods, once set it this position it become practically totally windproof, you don't get all the annoying false bleeps as primitive Chain/Chord type indictors constantly suffer from. 

Provided with a  0.7mm solid Carbon Fibre Rod as standard, but if the Scorpion has been fitted with a  32 x 15mm or  32x20mm HS Mag Head (Which has the strongest Line Clip mechanism possible to have, any stronger and the line would risk being seriously damaged when inserting it into the Clip) Logic dictates that you then have the most powerful Long Range Indicator possible to make, how powerful all depends on the strength of the Tension Rods fitted, over the past 20 + years customers have used all sorts to make sets of tension Rods out of for their own personal needs.


Solid Carbon Rods

Welding Rods

Piano Wire

Spring Steel Wire

Quiver Tip Blanks


Etc... There are just so many options available, and most cost just a few pence to make, hence there’s no point in me trying to provide a range of Tension Rods when it’s so cheap to make a DIY set yourself



Tip: "The No Mercy Method", for fishing at long range and for fish that are used to getting away with it - a well set Scorpion with a strong Tension Rod inserted that's matched up to the Leads weight in such a way that the Lead only just holds position, is a ruthless, highly efficient way of putting fish on the bank.  When I say "Strong Tension" I mean the Rod tips bending down towards the water, the line so tight you could play tunes on it, something having to be positioned were the Scorpion's going to fly backwards to stop the Head getting smashed up!  This method is what I originally used to stop the Carp even getting chance to even think of heading into the safety of the Jetty, when set just right once the bait is picked up causing even the slightest movement will dislodge the Lead, which then comes flying back towards you and self hooks the fish as fast as a Mouse Trap!




 

Solid Carbon Tension Rod that fits into the Scorpion's hollow Stainless Steel Flexible Arm


Scorpions can be fitted with any size/type Mag Heads, but the ideal size in order to cope with the tension are 32x15mm or 32x20mm HS Mag Heads








 Complete Unit = £17.50 each + Postage




 

Scorpion Flexi Arm Only = £7.50 each + Postage

















The Banshee 






The Banshee was the 2nd Indicator I designed (The Scorpion being the first) way back in 2003

The woven 316 Stainless Steel Chord has proved to be faultless, with the Stainless Steel Chord being semi-rigid it only adds a very slight bit of tension on the line once set in the ideal "U" shape. Once set it this position it become practically  totally windproof, you don't get all the annoying false bleeps as primitive Chain/Chord type indictors constantly suffer from.


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 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 welded link construction – impossible for one of these to snap or for a link open up, as the more commonly used cheap chain is prone for doing

Can be fitted with any version in the Mag Head range.



   Complete Unit = £16.50 + Postage

 




 

Hawk Chains Only 


The Hawk Chains are also available separately in 2”, 4”, 6” & 8” lengths as standard, 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



Chain Only = £6.00 each + Postage










The Sterling Hanger






As the name suggests – this very supple smooth Chain is made from Solid Sterling Silver, it was with great regret I had to stop making these a few years ago when the cost of Silver went through the roof!  Obviously material cost is still a limiting fact - hence it’s only viable to make them with 5” Chains (Raw Chain length)

The ideally size of Mag Head to fit is the 32mm x ½” 

 

Complete Sterling Hanger = £18.50 each + Postage


Sterling Silver Chain only = £8.50 each + Postage

The Warlock Range 




                          

                The "Rotary" Warlock                 A well used example in use (my own)



This range of 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 to achieve with Arm Indicators. The twin precision made Pivoting Joints, allowing for a smooth precise movement in either direction,  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, in this position only slight amounts of added weight are required to have a very noticeable effect.  Warlocks can be fitted with any of the Mag Head range.






 You also have the option of Solid Carbon or Solid Titanium Shafts fitted 







The Straight Arm Warlock versions are made as standard in three sizes 

(Distance between pivot points)


 4" Short           7" Medium          11" Long



The “Rotary” Warlock is a bit special (And probably my favourite Indicator of them all) The shaped solid Titanium Shaft was purposely designed to force the line to make as much contact with the Alarms Roller or Sensor as possible. 

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, without this transfer of movement you might as well not bother turning your Alarms on!    "More surface contact = more friction = best possible transfer of movement", especially when water, frost and Ice is thrown into the equation, it's no coincidence that I use a set of Rotary's for all my Pike fishing in winter.


For those who do a bit of Slackline fishing, Rotary Warlocks work a treat, as the twin pivots allow you to set the arm weightless in numerous ways










A full set of 2 gram Shim weight are included with each complete Warlock or Arm.
