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, the so called "protective coating" just wearing off even flaking off, and generally everything being of a very poor quality - and nothing has changed to the present day, nothing made in China lasts for long.
I ended up going to the local Scrap Metal Merchants and bought a few bits of Stainless Steel tube, 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!
Nothing on this site is a mass produced "soul-less" product, all are hand built to order using the very best materials available, and then assembled using slow old fashioned methods - because they are the best time proved methods.
For enquiries & placing orders please contact via
Mob No. 07976 551 742
Please just send an email, and then your requirements can then be discussed – as there are many options to cover your needs, remember - nothing is mass produced to “Bog Standard” specifications.
Once the order has been sorted, most use either Bank Transfer or PayPal these days.
Note: a 3.5% surcharge incurs with PayPal.
Delivery Time Scales
Most products, such as Indicators/Heads are made on weekly basis by the 100’s to keep up with demand.
The larger Custom built to order stuff like Tridents being the only exception, but even these only have a short waiting time from order to build due to even more machinery being invested in of late.
~All e-mails are normally answered within 24hrs, if you don''t get a reply- best to give me a call.
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, and not only that some take the design to China.Hence we have ended up with the present situation where there are no new designs of anything coming onto the market anymore – and you the Angler blatantly having the piss taken out of you, that in many cases the packaging is more valuable than the contents.
Strangely the worst tackle companies to blatantly copy others designs are British owned!
