This polearm consists of two curved metal bands that close around a target when you attack, allowing you to bind an opponent.
Benefit: A mancatcher is built to capture a creature of a particular size category (such as Small or Medium) and doesnt work on creatures of the wrong size. Make a touch attack to hit an opponent and a combat maneuver check to grapple him (without the 4 penalty for not having two hands free); success means you and the target are grappled, but you do not move into the same space. Once the target is grappled, you can perform a move or damage grapple action against him.
The mancatcher has hardness 10 and 5 hit points; it requires a DC 26 Strength check to break it. If you drop the mancatcher, the target can free himself as a standard action.
Weapon Feature(s): reach, grapple.
