    I don't think Delkim are marketing this alarm to people that want a receiver though .

    So it is just about the money then 🤣😂😜
    Delkim do not want to be known as the best selling mid-priced range of alarms. They are top shelf, big ticket, and you pay for it. That's their business model, their intended image within the market.  They have never had a budget/mid-price model - just a pricey remote model and a pricey none-remote model.
    If we want cheaper remote alarms Delkim are the not where we will find them.
    I would add - imo it would be commercial suicide for them to bring out a mid range remote alarm with the vibro/stylus technology. They'd never sell another TXI again.

    You CAN buy a remote receiver for Delks lol. It's called the TXI range!🤣

    Great stuff - just have to be mindful of where they are collected.  On my old syndi lake the mole hills were near the perimeter fencing which is weed treated so they were unusable.

    Its not an arguement I dont care what alarms people choose.
    An alarm with  no speakers just seems silly to me, when guys are travelling 2-3 hours to get to the syndi they seem perplexed when they haven't bought their receiver and have to go home.
    Just an observation 👍

    You'd have thought they would have started at that point hey.
    Forget the remote and have to pack up and go home - which I've seen someone have to do - stupid idea IMO

    I don't get you point at all mate🤣
    So your point is Delks are too expensive?
    End of the day you can pick up a none-remote alarm for a tenner, or you can go for the top shelf Delks at 60.
    If you want remote you can get cheapo alarms or you can get Delks at 135 a pop.
    It's the same with all the top end alarms - Fox, Nash, Nevs, etc etc.
    You can always go budget - JRC, Prologic, Wychwood etc. No one is forced to buy top end stuff.

    You don't do anything with the tag ends in terms of blobbing or gluing IMO that's a no no and completely unnecessary.
    Just pull the tag ends out a few mil more then cut off close to the exit then pull the leader tight again - the smaller tag end should disappear into the leader - rock solid nothing more needing to be done.

    Sussed it I think thanks Kev look much prettier now, I do like the avid stuff, I became a fan of there other leader as well the fluoro one, can't think what it's called but it's great for naked chod set ups and as an alternative leader, nice to use and actually stays nice for a good while too, 
    Chill factor I am using these as a quick change pva set up, mainly to take the sting out the cast a little (not big chucks BTW) and I want to feel safe putting the rigs a little closer to a bush, knowing i can give it a bit of pressure to get it away quickly if I need too, it will still be safe though I'm not one for taking risks at the fishes expense, and it's not really a dodgy move anyway the lake is pretty safe for snags on the whole, the only real worry is what Ciara and Dennis may have knocked off the trees but a couple of chucks of a grappling lead should help me find any FOD

    Without going into too much detail, leadcore can kink and with a heli setup with beads you've now got a point which the beads cannot pass over.  The inner core  can also pop out of the outer coating which is annoying but also creates a point which potentially the beads cannot pass over.
    That aside lead free is so much more supple so will sit better as well as none of the above mentioned possible probs.
    I've got 2 big spools of leadcore in storage that I will not use now that lead free is available and better. 👍

    Backing up what Ian said:  I used a custom recipe from Premier for years based on Aminos base mix and caught on it from the off, I also made the same bait but forgot the flavours and caught well from the off - better actually.  Now I use their standard recipes, because guess what they know what they are doing and I don't - and again catching from the off - never any doubts - now using Matrix Plus as well as Aminos T&G, both banging!
    There are also lots of other companies that I would trust, just choose a decent company and then stick with it - no worries.
