Bank sticks are poles with a threaded and a pointed end. They are used to either attach a bite alarm or butt rests for rods. There are a few different types but they all have the same purpose. Some bank sticks are adjustable and can be changed to the desired height. There are also some banksticks available with a screw tip which can help drive them into harder grounds.
Why would I want to use banksticks over a rod pod? Other than personal preference some locations are just too small or the ground is too uneven for a pod. On the other hand if the peg you’re on is crafted from harder materials like cement then banksticks are a no go and a pod should be used.
