They're carbon mate but I think they're far more flexible than some of the other carbon options. Too flexible imo.

Not sure what dymag is made out of but every single day of the week they are the best lightweight option out there.

Done the rounds on these as well, had Nbrice and Nev's both were very good but I did need a T bar to dig the holes. I've now changed yet again to JAG black, very happy, very light ideal.

Also brought a Matrix T bar very small about 8" it screws into the ground easily very compact well, fits in my 2 rod jag bar bags bank stick pocket. worth a look, I do have a custom T bar from Keith and one of his Titanium ones but the size was important so gone Matrix..

He does compare the weight saving against steel, which titanium is lighter than.Titanium won't show up the scratches like black anodised aluminium will aswell

True Yonny. Just re-read the original post after my sleepy trip in to work on the train - not much sleep due to the fires here at the moment.

If he only wants weight reduction, ally is better, just not as strong ...

Titanium is nowhere near as light as carbon lads. Anodized ali is a lot closer in terms of weight.

Echo what has been mentioned - Titanium, not Carbon.

Defiant MPS is what you want.

Keith is on here as DefiantOne, but best to contact him using the details on his website - www.defiantmps.com

Carbon is light and looks great, but it's not the most reliable of materials. Titanium is light and miles stronger. That's where I'd be looking

Id swerve carbon personally. I ditched stainless and went over to jag prolite black, it saved loads of weight and it can take more abuse than carbon.

Hi, i fancy giving carbon banksticks a go as i like the weight advantage carbon has over stainless and the tart in me quite like the look of them, where i fish the banks are more soft earth/clay rather than gravel so i would imagine they wont get damaged as badly as gravel, any recommends , the cygnet ones look alright but im aware they are slightly " budget " , any help would be appreciated
