The Quadra Point sticks were actually launched at the start of 2010, but seeing them in the flesh again reminded us just how good they are.

The outer is machined from one solid piece of stainless steel, but the real focus is the revolutionary, four-sided point, from which the sticks get their name. Not only do these penetrate all manner of banksides with relative ease, but the shape prevents the stick from twisting, giving a rock-solid anchor point for your setup. Widthwise, the top section of the sticks sit between Matrix’s two stainless ranges and can be used with any of the other Matrix stainless items.
