Throwing Sticks


Nash-Deliverance-Cybershot-Stealth-Throwing-StickUsing a throwing stick is definitely my choice over a catapult for baiting up over a wider area; although the throwing technique required takes a bit of getting used to.

When I first started using one my throwing action was either too slow and the boilies were landing right behind me or I was whipping the stick through the air too quickly and the boilies were landing in the water about 4 feet in front of me 🙂

Obviously throwing sticks are only really designed for boilies, although you can get away with using pellets of a certain size or even tiger nuts. The range that can be reached when using a throwing stick is quite surprising. It’s not unusual for example to fire out 20mm boilies that can reach 100+ metres without much effort – it’s all about mastering the throwing technique.

Below is a selection of throwing sticks currently available on the market which I would recommend.

Fox Rangemaster Throwing stick 20mm – Price £69.99 incl case.

The Korda Eazi stick is the one that I use and I think it’s a great piece of kit and have had no problems with it at all (the clue is in the title). It’s very lightweight and you can reach long distances with a bit of practise 🙂 It also has the following features:

  • Comes in two sizes – Standard 20mm & large 25mm.
  • Very lightweight and is easy to use.
  • Great value for money – I’ve had mine now for nearly 6 years and it’s never let me down. To be honest I wouldn’t change it for another throwing stick but then I guess it’s all about what you get used to.

Nash Deliverance Cybershot Stealth Throwing Stick – Price £41.75

The Nash throwing stick is quite pricey but its unique, super-light, carbon rail construction drastically reduces wind-resistance to give you the best possible distance and enhanced accuracy. It also has the following features:

  • High strength plastic – Carbon construction.
  • Unique carbon rail design reduces wind resistance for distance.
  • Enhanced accuracy.
  • Minimal strain on the arm.

I’ve never used one of these Stealth throwing sticks but it’s a little bit too expensive for my liking. My advice though is if you haven’t used a throwing stick before then I would plum for the Korda Eazi Stick or Fox Rangemaster. Both are quite similar and very easy to use.

Catapults


Heavy duty catapults are a must when it comes to carp fishing. I’ve got through a lot of catapults over the years, simply because they take a lot of stick especially when fishing at range and the elastic simply breaks or weakens and comes away from the hand piece.

As already mentioned I tend to favour using a throwing stick over a catapult except for short range fishing. But obviously it’s always best to carry one as you never know when you’ll need to use one. So long as you look after any throwing stick that you buy, you should be able to get a lot more use out of one than any catapult on the market. Below is a selection of catapults currently available on the market which I would recommend:

Korum Boilie Catapult – Price £8.99


Korum-Boilie-Catapult

The Korum boilie catapult has a large coned pouch and strong quick change elastic which means it will fire out boilies and pellets at range with ease – up to 100+ yards.

I have one of these catapults and I find them to be very accurate to use. They will easily fire 4 or 5 boilies out at a time. But I find that if you overfill the pouch then you lose some of the baiting accuracy as one or two of the boilies tend to fly everywhere.

This catapult is extremely durable and should last many carp fishing sessions. It also has the following features:

  • Sure grip handle and stay open pouch.
  • Very powerful and durable.
  • Can fire out boilies up to 100+ yards.

The Korum groundbait catapult is excellent for firing out balls of groundbait feed up to 50 metres. With a large moulded semi-rigid pouch, the groundbait catapult has been designed to give maximum accuracy and range. It also has the following features:
