This is a well made product. As
with all newly assembled stuff it
pays to check it out, and tighten
things up before use. I added a 6
foot length of parachute cord with
a float and disconnect to follow
fish. I wrapped the cord around
the stick and secured it with noose
knot and did not use the clip. The
float might help me get the stick
back if accidently dropped over
the side. I have not installed the
brackets that came with the stick
either. Old Town Predator 13 has a
strap point on both sides of the
seat that works well for me. ACKs
price was the best I found and
shipping was fast and free. I have
and will recommend this stick and
ACK to friends and family.

Great product! Would
recommend over all others.
Bonus is it comes with great
price. Be sure and get some
kind of float device attached to
stik it pole. Lost first one while
catching red fish. I had it
bunged in w/kayak strap that
come on yak by seat and must
have slid across bunge and
unhooked it. Didn't notice I lost
it till to late. I had ask austin
kayak about mounting clips
and they said just use yak
bunge. Bad idea. Install clips
that come w/stik it pole and
add some kind of float to pole
or line attached to ring. Love
the free shipping !
Awesome stick. Holds the yak
well. Would be five-star if stick
length was adjustable.
Bought a pair of these to hold
my pelican style bass boat in
place for shallow water fishing.
It is strong and does indeed
hold my boat quite well. Very
strong and easy to deploy.
Very happy with my purchase.
Good stick, well made and should work well.
Have not had a chance to try it yet. Would have
been 5 stars but the clips that come with it are
very soft material and when I screwed them
into my yak the screw went through the
material and would not tighten down.
I emailed yak gear after the t
handle off of my mud stick
came off and was lost. I was
contacted by Bill Bragman, the
president of the company. He
asked for my address and had
me a new handle in the mail
the next day! Their products
are all what they are cracked
up to be, and customer service
is second to none.
Love this product, and love ACK's service. The stick
arrived w/o the mounting clips, and they were quick to
send out the clips and hardware the next day (the
screws are the correct size now for those of you that
have read the mounting clips reviews). Not
recommended for use in scupper holes because you can
damage the integrity of the hole, but great tethered with
a strap. Bang for the buck!
This is a well made product and
am pleased with my purchase.
Great item and great price

Very well-thought out design and quality construction. The
soft handle material is easy on the hands and good for
pushing off. The attachment point for a lanyard is handy. The
extra weight of fiberglass (vs. hollow pvc or other material)
gives it good mass for easy insertion into different bottom
types. Mounting clips with nuts and bolts are included, a nice
touch. I found using my anchor trolley not a good way to
hold position. Using my scuppers was much better. When I
want to move to a new position, I can lift the stick about a
foot off the bottom, hold it up with my leg using side
pressure, drift to a new spot, drop the stick with my leg, and
jam it into the new spot by pushing down on the handle. I
still need to figure out a better way to control the direction I
Mud stick works great for kayak stake
out and push pole. Easy to use and
store on board. Also, held my 17 ft. flats
boat in place securely in strong current.
Make sure to attach a float b/c they sink.
I already lost one overboard.
