ND tackle dongles set any good or not?


Recommended Posts

 For some reason the pervert in me wants some delkims ev-d or Nevilles or something, im not ready to commit 550 quid to a set but I fancy a change 😑

Has anyone used the ND tackle dongles £71, for 3 dongles + receiver which is less than half price of the gardner set up? But are they any good? 

I am slowly coming round to the idea of needing dongles and the fact they are cheaper from ND makes it acceptable just abiut ☺️, I can't see any other alarms I want really other than Nevilles or the delkims at present, but I think most people will say Delks are better alarms with the vibration sensing thing

I'm staying to quite like the look of the S9 alarm set tbh, they look quite decent I think, have lots of different features that can be all controlled via phone or the reciever 

Stay away from the k9 mate. 

Had them for a couple of years and all the dials kept falling off. 

The s9 look a lot better to be fair and are cheaper than the k9 too.

That's not so good I think the S9 seems a lot more simple, with less to go wrong on them but thanks will do more digging

I had the K9 alarms a couple of years ago. Bought to replace aging Fox buzzers and being a bit of a techie these looked perfect. I used them for a few day sessions before taking them to France with me. The first evening I am sat with my mate in-between our pegs (about 10 meters from my bivvy) when my mate says he could hear a whirring noise - checked my receiver, nothing - glanced at my rods to see the reel on my right hand rod melting. Long story short, I had what felt like it could have been a PB, but because my receiver had not indicated anything it had ran at least 100 yards and eventually came off - I sold the alarms as soon as I got back and will never trust anything by ND again. The S9 alarms come with exactly the same receiver as the K9s.

I have Nash R3 now and have never looked back.

I bought the Att dongles to go onto my Delkims years ago, must be 10+?

I'm sure I had them when I first went onto Nazeing in 2008, so they have lasted. The receiver lasts at least a year on a single Eveready or Duracell AA battery, however dependant on use or type the dongle batteries will need changing around every 3 months. The GP batteries don't have a good life, the ones I got from Maplin were a whole lot better, sadly Maplin😖

 

I know this goes against Emmcees opinion, sorry, I have found the ST Delkims with the dongles worked for me, and I know it is a common judgement that Delkim TXi's had water ingress problems for a few years.
