Gardner | Carbon Skorpion Stiks

RRP: £79.99 | gardnertackle.co.uk

The new Carbon Skorpion Stiks have evolved directly from the hugely successful Skorpion range of plastic throwing sticks. The new version features the same swept and curved design, which effectively accelerates and stabilises the bait in flight by increasing the centrifugal force generated as the bait accelerates along the curved portion of the stick. The reduction in weight makes the stick easier to use, and this reduced effort means that you can easily maintain consistency and accuracy, even after firing out a lot of bait. The Carbon Skorpion Stik is designed for use with boilies up to 22mm in diameter, and works superbly whether flicking out 14mm baits at short range, or firing air-dried 22mm baits as far as possible. These sticks are manufactured from high-modulus carbon with a 3k carbon finishing wrap that looks great and adds extra strength to the finished throwing stick. The stick features a comfortable non-slip shrunk rubber handgrip and a removable plug for easy cleaning. As a bit of a carbon stick aficionado, I must say I loved using this new Gardner stick, and think it is fair to comment that the unique shape definitely seems to improve performance, and the weight reduction is fantastic; it’s one of the lightest models available.
