I've just actually sold a 15 year old stainless Trident pod which was in as good condition practically as the day it was bought. Mate of mine is on his 4th set of carbon in half that time due mostly to breakages, although hes a clumsy sod with a hammer admittedly.

Will always be a stainless/titanium fan 👍

Looks smart mate, matches the stainless to a tee, but you do know stainless is so last century... carbon is where it at now 🤷‍♂️😂😂

Funnily enough, before Cygnet bought them out, Muddy Waters did supply 2BA grub screws with some of their products...

It's no biggie since the grubs were a fiver delivered. I get the point about them not "universally" fitting other manufacturer's gear that's fair enough but that said 2ba is a pretty standard thread size, I think everything I have connects with a 2ba and all they have to do is include a couple of male 2ba threads.

Anyway, the cheapos from ebay did the trick and I'm happy with the result 👍

I get where you are coming from but thatís almost like saying for example you drive a Ford and you need a starter motor and expecting a Vauxhall one to fit.. Unfortunately thereís no standardisation in fishing tackle apart from the 3/8Ē BSF thread used in banksticks etc At least youíve got to the bottom of the problem, let us know how you get on with them Iíve got the quiver type arms they are okay but not brilliant

Sorry mate don't agree, it does replace chains, if they were to add a 2ba grub screw, then they'd have to add A male to female converter, a 2ba to M5 both for the male and female ends for the Nash guys, plus the M6 for the Fox. That would cover all bases and probably cost you a tenner each.

The description given on Angling Directs website for these pivot arms states "Designed to replace your chains or cords."

So if that's the case in my humble opinion then they should as "supplied" be capable of screwing into whatever you screwed your chords or chains into, simples.

However it's not the case and you need to start fannying around buying grub screws.

It's not a big deal but it is a bit of a misrepresentation to make the suggestion they have.

Oh I get that, Iíve been in engineering for 30 years but the OP made out Cygnet were at fault and guilty of wrongly describing the product.. Cygnet make parts that fit Cygnet products, whether they fit other manufacturers products or not is not there problem.

Some use chains/arms with male fittings at both ends, such as Solar, and some use female at one end and male at the other, such as Cygnet. There are two common thread sizes used, 2BA (Imperial) and M5 (Metric), so they are mostly compatible. In much the same way, bite alarms from all manufacturers have a 3/8 BSF thread and fit any companies bank sticks etc.

I might have missed something here but Cygnet bobbins heave a female thread and the hockey sticks have a male.... so the arms would surely work as supplied? 🤷‍♂️

I did say a 2ba male and female. If you don't get the grub screws to convert then change the hockey stick, a lot dearer way of doing it though.
