The High Point "Intimidator"

High Point has a new release!

Splash

The “INTIMIDATOR” Prop Stick

What makes this product so great?

First off, it’s made in the USA by High Point.

This is not your basic chicken stick that's made from wood or some kind of plastic pipe. And, one that was just specifically designed for the small glow engines. You know, the one that was handed down to you from that old guy at the field.

Just get this "INTIMIDATOR” prop stick anywhere near your prop and it will quiver and cowl, and even just might start up by itself. (Not really) But, you can show it who the boss is.

The "INTIMIDATOR” is made with an aluminum core with 6" of rubber surface area and a CNC machined rubber handgrip for great ergonomic feel and a total length of almost a foot long. It's perfect for larger props and small ones too.

You’ll toss your old chicken stick away once you hold this bad boy in your hand

$24.50 us.

Available worldwide from your local HIGH POINT dealer or directly from our store.

Thank you for your comment,

While the majority of us hand prop, some are still intimidated by the prop. (For good reason) Maybe they have been bitten before or parents who don't like the idea of the kids risking their fingers. There are Countless other reasons.

We feel that there is no shame in being cautious and using a "Chicken stick" If that's your choice. Therefore we don't even call it one.

Regards,
Scott

Never hurts to be cautious. I have used a chicken stick for years. Actually just replaced mine after 8 years of gas engine use.

45 years in the hobby never used one. Wish I had!
Bad accident 1 1/2 years ago and now I’ve been using a paint roller.
I’m ordering one.

No, it does not roll. We had many pilots field test the Intimidator and felt it was not necessary.
We also had our legal department do a patent search and found there is a patent on the rolling part of a starter stick, So we didn't even go down that avenue.
Again, the feed back we received from some Top Pilots, was it wasn't necessary for their needs.
There is a company that does makes a "roller type" so you have a choice, it's just personal preference.

Thanks for asking.

I don't use the stick but when I have I thought the rolling part was unnecessary. This looks fine to me.

Thank you for your response Scott. I do own one of the rolling sticks now. I am going to order the Intimidator as well because I feel like the rolling part of mine causes me to lose contact with the prop during compression some times. I love all of your products and I am sure this one is just as well thought out as the rest of them.
Thanks
