Interlok History

Established in 1968, Kalstan Engineering has been manufacturing high precision components from medical instruments to more commercial products. With a great deal of design and manufacturing experience, one of its members with 20 years experience in angling put forward an idea that could really benefit anglers. He pointed out that the quantity and weight of many items that he needed to carry to the bank was just to much to bear.

With this in mind and over 12 months in testing, we came up with a new concept in bankstick's and buzzer bars. The first task was reducing the weight, which in using aluminium alloy we found that the weight decrease was up to three hundred percent compared to stainless steel in the equivalent item.

The second and most challenging problem was adaptability. The result creating the "Interlok Modular Kit", as simple as a Lego kit. All parts are interchangeable, so any style of set up can be created from single bankstick two rod setups, to goalpost style three or four rod setups.

NEW Products have been added to our range.

  • Complete Rod Pod with 3 Rod Snag Bar fitted as standard.
