The Taska Range Sticks have been purposely designed to be used in a variety of ground surfaces. A large hi-vis sight marker has been added to the tip of the Range Sticks to make night time use much easier. Place the Range Sticks one rod length apart using the Range Cord and begin to wrap the line from one stick to another in a figure of eight until you reach the line clip on the reel. This will then give you the range you are fishing at and insures you are hitting the same spot every time. Works great for spod/marker as well.
