Dont you think these fishing takle sellers think that carp fishermen and women have a never ending heap of cash as the prices just keep going up and up 

Yeah and no. I was in my local tackleshop yesterday and clocked a few over priced things, distance sticks at £79.99, Nash key boilies at £14.99 a kilo, most of the freezer boilies was around £10+ a kilo. A lot of the bait attractors and pop ups seemed a bit over priced as well. But luckily I don't use any of it lol. But the price of terminal tackle seemed relatively cheap, you can get a pack of hooks for the price of a cloudy apple lol

New sleep system - going down well!  Room for 2 no arguments!    

listen up lads and i will impart the secret!! tuck the rods under your arm and just walk in like nothing is different, as you walk by the shoe stand just casually look down and say out loud,, NEW SHOE

What a load of twaddle! I bought a cheap light aluminium £50 pod years ago, that only got uprated within the last two years, but because I could. A goalpost pod I could fish as pod or banksticks,

Yes agreed but a lot of the mainstuff is dear for any one new to carp fishing a decent set up would cost £600 for the lot unless u buy a stinky winky shop put to gether kit

there are alternatives to plenty of kit to be had which are better quality and cheaper. army surplus kit, stoves like the Bulin T4... look on ebay for swivels, etc. (although do you trust them fully? I'd need to rigorously test them first)

I get my ring swivels and quick change swivels from eBay mate, there done by "bank tackle" I've caught 100s of fish on them without having one break on me. Saying that I'll have one break on the next  fish I hook into now lol

I'm talking about the silly priced ones. I picked up some swivels for when I make my own marker floats. 250 barrel swivels for £3 something. Now would I use these on my actual fishing rods? not without some serious testing first! If they performed the same as the 20 for £4 then its a bargain.

I got home last night and was given the news by my lovely other half that she had reversed into a car.    There goes a bucket load on an insurance excess....on top of that she hasn't paid off her recent speed and red light fines....

...so I used my fuzzy logic and decided I should treat myself to some new Shimano XTD 5500's because I'm fed up of paying for her driving mistakes all the time and decided I should spend some money on something for myself. :D

I've heard one or two on here say how good the Technium is.

I think you'll find that the Invisitech is a totally different line to Technium BC.

Not saying it's better or worse, but the Technium is the "black" version and the one that people rave about. Me included 8)

The Technium black that we all used (me included was fantastic and at the time when they released it the camou was the same line i.e feel diameter etc.

I have kept a couple of bulk spools of both in their tins in the dark and hope they haven't deteriorated so I shall be able to make a direct comparison when I see some in our local shops.

Cheers

Ian
