not having a go at anyone here, but i just want to know why you would need wireless receivers for your alarms? surely if you cant hear your alarm when it sounds, then you are too far away. is there another good use for them that i am missing? just seems like a lot of money to encourage bad angling. each too there own like but its just my thought Smile Smile

Inside a bivvy when the rain is hammering and the wind is up, you can't hear alarms from 10 feet away at full volume. Dunno what your idea of bad weather is but I've been bivvied up in some really nasty weather.

Where I fish, there are also 100s of Canada Geese and they just do not shut up, all night.

Also, you might not want other anglers elsewhere to know you're onto fish or disturb them.

Remote receivers do have their uses. It's not always about distance.

fair play guys. when i used to go carp fishing i used a sounder box with my delks. 10m cable plenty long enough even to reach my bivvy. i just think that a receiver that picks up the alarms from 100 to 200m away will just encourage some anglers (not all) to walk away from there rods. yes i can see other peoples point about them having a good use, but still why do they need such a range? why not make them so they only have a range of around say 30m? surly that would cover all the reasons people have made for using a receiver? Very Happy Very Happy

too true mate. i was on alderfen last year and saw a guy on the carp lake walk around 80m down the bank to his mate, gets a run (had a receiver on) sprints back, well as fast as a carp angler can in wellies Very Happy Very Happy by the time he got to the rod, fish weeded up solid and had to pull for a break.

indeed, how long does it take to cover 30mts when running, average time is 4-5secs, it's still a length of time, anything could happen in 4 secs

Billy Backbiters.

Solid construction and easy to setup.

Recently purchased the Zandavan 999 Alarm so looking to try that out in the near future.
