Thanks for your input,ive got a pair of oldschool standered delks which are still going strong but needed some alarms with a reciever as i can sleep quite deep (when i do actually sleep) and these were pritty cheep compared to others out there new,i havnt even put batteries in them yet(need to buy some tomorrow) but im hoping these will see me through untill i have the cash for something a bit more flash lol

 

If they are as good and last as long as the old fox m range of alarms im sure i will be happy.

 

Has anyone on here got them?

Not that great quality!! just put batteries in and set them up on the pod with rod etc,one works great,the other is not!! the roller sticks and is VERY stiff,runs register but not drop backs :( at all!!! the roller dosnt move,im taking them back tomorrow to see if i can either get a replacement or my money back!!

 

Very dissapointed :evil: if they both worked like the good one i would be a happy chappy but they dont!

Don't worry too much. There are always a few that slip through the quality control net, no matter what it is; and unfortunately, someone has to get them.

 

I'm sure they will replace the faulty one without any hassle and you can be a happy chappie!

 

When I used to work in a tackle shop we had the occasional faulty alarm, and admittedly Fox were the worst for numbers (but also the ones we sold most of) that needed returning for replacement.

Fox had or have a pretty good customer sales and service department.

 

If you have bought them from a tackle shop then return them to the tackle shop, it is possible that they will replace the faulty alarm on the spot. If you purchased from another source, then phone Customer Services at Fox and arrange for repair/replacement that way.

 

Please note, I do say if you have bought brand new from a shop then speak to them first, the purchase contract is with the shop, and NOT with Fox tackle

That's the advantage of dealing with real people, face to face. Online shopping is fine, usually, but if there are issues it's difficult to talk to a computer although I'll admit that I sometimes shout at mine!

 

Proper outcome.

Why do people still bother with roller alarms? I mean, yeah, not everyone can afford delkims, but these new fox alarms are like the same price as a set of second hand txi's.

Sounds good. At the end of the day; Delkims won't ever let you down.
