Cheap alarms needed

Recommended Posts

As the title says I'm after some cheap decent alarms as there's a few out there the reason why I'm after some is because my Delkims are starting to play up not done bad seeing as I bought them circa 93-94. I only want them( if mine can be repaired) just to see me through while mine are rerepaired if not then I'll have to treat myself to a new set.

Cheers boys

I'm going out on a limb here as i do not know the products but for that money they just have to be rubbish , i'm not saying you can't catch a fish with them but don't expect much .It may be worth trying to find something second hand .

These items will get you fishing but really we need to know what size of fish you're aiming for. Like I said, they will get you fishing but not for long. I don't have a massive budget for fishing so I know how to be savvy, if I were you I'd be spending that 30 squid either on eBay, Gumtree, in a free ads paper like Bargain Pages or my local car boot. Go for known brand names, Shakespeare is an ok budget brand to start out with.

Hope this helps.

Its gone a little off-topic i know , but , as budget reels go , you could do a lot worse than nick your mates okuma reel . Imo they are reliable if nothing else .

 

Ok , dragoncarp have a bad reputation and common sense usually dictates that when buying carping gear you tend to get what you pay for.

However we shouldnt be tarring all cheap tackle with the same brush.

 

When i started carping i bought 3 cheap 2.5tc rods off ebay for £28 and two mickey mouse baitrunner style reels for £15 and there is nothing wrong with em to this day , in fact i still have em and use em as spares.

Caught tonnes of carp with them so dont always be put off by the price.

 

Back ON topic ....... Leeda 2xl alarms matey . Cheap cheerful and utterly reliable . Cant go wrong for a pittance .

In my humble opinion if it's budget alarms you need then take a look at the basic Fox models - Micron M's. About £20-25 but will last you a lifetime with no worries about build quality.

I use Fox Micron STR's with the remote receiver but also have some ancient Micron M's that are nearly 20 years old, they have been dropped into the water, stood on and generally abused but still work like they did out of the box.

I really rate Fox alarms (especially the cheaper models).
