First there were metal and plastic throwing sticks, then there were expensive carbon ones, followed by more affordable carbon ones, and now there’s a carbon throwing stick shaped like a sword blade!
This Ridge Monkey offering has a pointed profile which is said to cut through the air more easily and release air pressure around the boilie to help it discharge quicker.
We pitted this against a standard carbon throwing stick and got greater distances, but you do have to adjust your technique – stopping the throw sharply and in a more upright position.
It's also a bit louder through the air than most throwing sticks, so the gulls will definitely know when you're using one!
