Lighten up and look sharp!
Want a culty look? Want lightweight sticks and bars? And like saving money? Then you’re in luck…

Cygnet has a history of disappearing into its great big design shed, having a few Yorkshire ales, and then opening the doors a few months later to reveal something that’s bold and desirable. Take this summer’s 20/20 collection. It has boldness, a distinctive look and a rock-solid sense of value. But for those who prefer something a tad more old school. Something which looks thinner and just a little more “carpyness” then may we suggest you take a closer look at the brand’s Snugs range of buzzers bars and ‘T’ Bar Banksticks?

The brief with the Snugs was to make a super-narrow, space-efficient buzzer bar and that’s exactly what rolled off the production line and out through those big doors. Both the 2 and 3 rod ‘Snugs’ feature the same, ultra-tight spacing so big pit reels will sit ‘shoulder-to-shoulder’, keeping the set-up neat, functional and looking simply stunning. And add in a price tag of just £7.99 each (£9.99 for the three rod versions) and you’ve got a Darrell Peck-approved set-up which won’t hit the MasterCard too hard.

To marry up with these teeny bars are the brand’s ‘T’ Bar Banksticks. In terms of aesthetics, like the Snugs, they win – hands down (especially when coupled with their new Butt Grabber rests which retail for £7.99 for three) – and performance-wise they’re impressive too: lightweight, durable and reliable. Start building your collection from just £6.99 a stick. cygnettackle.co.uk

Stabiliser 12mm

Cygnet’s 12mm Stabiliser is one seriously brilliant product: produced from a solid piece of anodised aluminium, it’s built to last, features a one-piece, lock-down thumbscrew and looks absolutely lush and like nothing else around. And it comes with a damn good price point too: just £11.99.

Stage Stand 12mm

In years gone by, should you have encountered a platform, you had two options: a rod pod or some bright stainless steel stage stand. Thankfully, the experts at Cygnet Tackle have crafted these and finished them in their now signature black anodised finish.

Machined, just like the rest of their bars and sticks from a block of alloy, it means they’re extremely light yet extremely strong and when tightened down with a Phillips screw, the stand will self-level on fixing. So wave goodbye to heavy stainless and welcome with light arms this incredible looking set-up for just £13.99.
