HOW IT ALL STARTED
The creation of MPS was never planned, it literally just happened. It was way back in the mid 90's when I personally got so fed up with the gear I was using falling to bits, snapping, corroding (Aluminium) the so called "protective coating" just wearing off, and generally everything being of a very poor quality.
So off I went to the local Scrap Metal Merchants and bought a few bits of Stainless Steel, which would slid inside each other, a few days later I had made myself some usable Bank Sticks. Things then just progressed themselves as numerous other local anglers saw what I was using, then asked if I would make some for them as well, the rest is just history as they say!
Now there’s a huge range of products to choose from – with no gimmicks involved, no advertising spiel ever needed, no Tackle Shows ever attended, no “named anglers” ever bribed to use the stuff. All MPS products are simply made from the very best materials available for the application, and made to the very best assembly methods known – which may be much more time consuming, but the end result is products that won’t last a lifetime, they should last many lifetimes.

Delivery Time Scales
Most products, such as Indicators/Heads are made on weekly basis by the 100’s to keep up with demand. ONLY the complex bespoke products such as the Titanium Trident Range of systems have waiting lists in place for them. There has been a constant demand for them for over 18 years now, the latest very high Spec Titanium versions even more so.

Might be best to give me a call if you do not get a reply.
PLEASE NOTE – Do not ask me to make a copy of anyone else’s designs, Defiant MPS is a truly reputable Company.
Since starting Defiant MPS way back in the mid 90’s, I watched the true pioneers of modern fishing tackle spend time, money and effort to come up with brilliant new designs to enhance anglers time on the bank no end, to just have some other company run by some sad little morons go and make a blatant copy within six months! Hence we have ended up with the present situation where there are no new designs of anything coming onto the market anymore – just regurgitated, re-worked, revamped old vintage designs.
And who’s missing out in the long run – you the Angler.
Strangely the worst tackle companies to blatantly copy others designs are British owned! (Whatever happened to British values?)
Here’s a few for the every growing hall of shame
