    Yak Attack Park N Pole

    The Yak Attack ParkNPole has been designed by Luther Cifers and the well renowned kayak fishing angler Chad Hoover. The ParkNPole does the same thing as any stake out pole, it holds your position in shallow water.

    The diameter is small enough to fit through a scupper hole in your kayak or it can be used as an anchor by attaching it to your anchor trolley. The ParkNPole has a few well thought out features that set it apart from other stake out poles I have researched. The pole itself is made of a very strong fiberglass "Floating" tube with a comfortable foam grip on the handle. At one end it has a molded handle with an ergonomic grip designed to make pushing it in the ground a lot easier.

    The other end has a point which can be easily pushed into the ground. The handle also has a hole that allows you to attach a rope.
    The side of the handle has two notches which allow it to act as a “hook” to grab onto small objects like an anchor line, trot line, small tree limb, etc.

    Now the neat part is the handle also doubles as the foot. That’s right, when you flip the pole over the wide design of handle lends it’s self extremely well as a foot to be used as a push pole. The width of the handle offers greater leverage than a standard pole and grips the bottom very well, be it dirt or mud.

    My one concern after using the ParkNPole for several months is that the plastic tip will wear. I've discussed this with Luther and he has assured me that while it will scar, it will hold up very well and that if it ever does wear out it can be replaced.

    Shaun's concern about the tip is one I've heard from a few people, and I completely understand it. The tip is plastic and it seems like a counter-intuitive choice for a component that has to slice through gravel and oyster beds.

    But we selected a very tough, abrasion resistant material, and while it will scuff relatively easily, it's highly resistant to wear.

    So far we've heard concerns that the tip could wear out, but we have not had anyone that has actually worn the tip out, and based on the material we are using and the testing we have done I imagine we're not likely to anytime soon! Couple that with the fact that the tip can be replaced and I'm very confident we've selected "the right tool" for the job!
