    Default Cygnet Banksticks and Buzz Bars

    Good evening guys,

    I have been looking at getting something a little lighter than my Steve Neville stainless.

    All I really need to know is what people think of the Cygnet stuff and what model they have used or still use?

    It looks as if the sticks may scratch easily? I may be wrong, any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ryan

    I've got some of the short and stubby bank sticks - good quality, light weight and can't be beaten given the price! I've not managed to scratch them and I'm not exactly careful with them.

    I bought 4 minimal banksticks and 4 buzz bars (2 x 2 rod setup) and used them once; not very happy with them. The grub screws don't hold the banksticks in place, two of the screw threads are not cut deep enough so there is a gap between the bankstick and buzz bar. General build quality is very hit and miss. I've already gone back to my trusty solar single sticks.

    I swapped my stainless for 2 x 2 rod snugs set ups last year and it's one of the best things I've done!! Weighs next to nothing and for approx. 50 got 4 x 2 rod bars, stabilisers and a selection of different length sticks. It gets used 2-3 nights a week and I am surprised the paint hasn't come off the sticks!

    I've had some cygnet stuff for over 10 years and its faultless. Doesn't get used since I got my jag stuff but got hammered before that and absolutely no complaints

    Honest, well priced functional kit.

    More than happy with the 20/20 stuff I've used for the last 18 months.

    Pounds for Oz's, probably the best.
    Maybe its because i'm a londoner

    I have a couple of sets of snugs and also the chunky stuff. All be faultless - light, well priced, and the sticks haven't scratched up too much, except right down by the points. Sold all my stainless.
