Korda Eazi Stik Throwing Stick TS20
Producing a throwing stick is an unusual step away from Korda's speciality of leads and rig gear. Danny does nothing without good reason - his first experience of this baiting tool came at Shimano Linear Fisheries in Oxford.
Danny told us: “I was amazed at how light it was and was more amazed that I could actually use it effectively. Prior to using this design I simply could not use a throwing stick of any description.”
Credit for the design has to go to long-range guru Frank Warwick, who inspired the original design.
WHY EASI-STIK IS THE BEST ON THE MARKET
Long, straight shaft which allows the boilie to pick up more speed before it exits. The faster the boilie travels, the further it travels. Field-testing this length generated maximum speed without increasing the effort required to move the stick through the air.
Made from ultra-light polycarbonate plastic makes the Eazi-Stik incredibly light, making baiting effortless. It greatly reduces fatigue on your arm, which is a major bonus because most sticks kill your arm. Take care though, accidentally hitting the ground on the follow through can damage this stick. Keep it out of direct sunlight in the heat of summer too, as prolonged exposure to temperatures of 25 degrees can warp the shape.
The bend in the end of the Eazi-Stik is essential to its performance. This long, J-shaped bend increases back spin on the boilie and the backspin 'lifts' the boilie in flight. greatly increasing distance.
The broken texture of the rubberised handle creates the right amount of friction with your hand to ensure a firm grip - This stops the stick twisting in your hand on the downward stroke, keeping the baits straight. Great effort was put into keeping the handle as slim as possible - this substantially reduces fatigue on your forearm, which is a problem found in most other sticks. The handle was made 8" long to allow one or two-handed grip.
