The Sturdy Stick is a super tough acrylic plug, inserted into the bankside, which the Distance Stick slips into to allow you to measure up accurately. Once you’ve cast out, the Distance Sticks can be quickly removed, leaving the Sturdy Sticks in the ground so your spots don’t get disturbed! Your Distance Sticks are safe, and when you need to wrap up again, just pop them back into the Sturdy Sticks, and you’re instantly back on your mark! Need to use them in the dark? Each Sturdy Stick has an isotope slot too, so you can find them again at night! Purchased as a pair, the Sturdy Sticks are also supplied with a simple removal tool to retrieve them from hard ground.
