The 3rd version of the original Trident design, The Trident “Panther” Many ask, “why are they named after big Cats?” Well, they are not, they are actually named after German Panzers, which is rather fitting as they have always been described as “Built like Tanks”
The Trident Panther is made using Titanium Shafts and Stainless-Steel fittings to give the best strength to weight ratio, durability and incredible corrosion resistance.
Fitted with 3 off 81/2” and 3 off 11" Titanium Bank Sticks as standard, with the option of solid Stainless-Steel Augers or Points fitted, plus the option of Thumb Screw or Grub Screw locking
The Cross Shafts can be made any width up to 20" wide (Centre to Centre of the outer Bank Sticks)
The Centre Shafts extend to 43" long, allowing the positioning of the Butt Ring on the inside of the Alarm with most Rods, the wider apart the support points for your Rods are (Butt Grips and Alarms) the more stable the Rods will be once fitted, hence false Bleeps from Rods wobbling about in the wind is practically eradicated.
The Panther brakes down into 9 basic parts:
1 x 22 1/2” long Centre Shaft (closed length)
2 x Cross Shafts
3 x 81/2” Titanium Bank Sticks
3 x 11” Titanium Bank Sticks
~ But most only remove the Centre Shaft, leaving the Cross Sections built up ready to use to save time, and then store inside their Un-Hooking Mat Bag or Folded Bed Chair, making set up time a matter of a few seconds
Chassis Length: Closed = 26" Extended = 43"
