Best Bite Alarm? The Delkim 25th Anniversary Plus Bite Alarm review

IMG_20171006_192924_530 This week we take a look at the ever popular Delkim 25th Anniversary Plus Bite Alarm.

This review includes a rundown of all the features you will find with the alarm.

As well as some super useful bite alarm tricks and tips and our honest opinions on the Delkim 25th Anniversary Plus Bite Alarm.

As usual if you have any comments/questions on this review, please leave them in the comments below.

Let’s get started…

The review

The main feature in our opinion that sets a Delkim Bite Alarm apart from the rest is that Delkim use a vibration sensing technology instead of the commonly used roller wheel system. The vibration sensing technology is exclusive to Delkim and offers you more accurate sensitivity options which could result in more fish on the bank in theory.

One of our favourite features of these alarms are the sensitivity settings which gives you 20 sensitivity options. If you’re fishing in hard winds at distance simply switch your sensitivity to Minus 6, this should eliminate false bleeps caused by the wind. If your fishing close in and need any indications that fish are touching your rig/line then switch your sensitivity to Plus 10 then adjust it if needed.

The alarm is well designed with solid, well-built buttons and dials, no use of stickers or cheap flimsy buttons.

Delkim Bite Alarm and Illuminated Hangers

Incredibly bright LED’s are used throughout which you can set at the brightness you wish. The alarm includes a super useful night light mode, ideal for fishing in the dark. The night mode also works well paired with illuminated hangers.

In terms of tones you can set, the Delkim tones in our opinion are the best sounding and you can create unique tones and also set classic distinctive Delkim tones, although not an essential feature it’s a nice addition to a premium bite alarm.

The Delkim 25th Anniversary Plus Bite Alarm includes a protective hard case which protects your alarms from any damage when packed away.

The maximum volume is incredibly loud, but if you wish you can also set no volume and have the signal go through a receiver.

Delkim Micro Transmitter

If you want to use a receiver with the Delkim 25th Anniversary Plus Bite Alarm you will need to purchase separately the Delkim Receiver and a Delkim Micro Transmitter which fits to the bottom of the alarm.

Attx Receiver

Alternatively you can purchase an Attx Receiver and an Attx Dongle Transmitter (3.5mm) which plugs into the bottom right port of the alarm which can be a little cheaper and works very well.

One thing I do like about these Delkim alarms is that there are so many accessories sold separately that fit perfectly with all the Delkim alarms which will give you the setup you require.

Delkim sell snag ears, various illuminated hangers, 2 different bite alarm receivers, various hard cases and a super handy quick release system for removing your alarms from bank sticks.

Negatives?

It wouldn’t be a CTR review without expressing any negative feedback so here’s the negatives.

Surprisingly there’s only one drawback to these alarm which is price. Don’t get me wrong if you buy a Delkim alarm you’re getting your money’s worth with all the included features but it can be an investment.

I’ve been fishing for over 10 years and I’ve only just got my hands on Delkim alarms. One thing I can say is over those 10 years I’ve used so many bite alarms and wish I just saved up until I could afford to buy Delkim alarms but I guess life just gets in the way sometimes.

How much and where can I find them?

You can find the Delkim 25th Anniversary Plus Bite Alarms for around £69.99 each. I purchased my alarms from amazon with free postage.

I also bought the Delkim Slimlite Illuminated Hangers which create an awesome looking, functionable set up and you can find those for around £34.99 each.

Conclusion

Carp Tax? Where to Find Cheap Alternative Carp Fishing Tackle

We all spend a small fortune on the tackle essentials such as rods and reels, which is a must for any budding fishing enthusiast.

But there are some areas in carp fishing where you can save some of your hard-earned cash.

Ever heard of the carp tax?

Well I could’ve just made that up, but essentially the carp tax is the cost added to a generic product that is re purposed and sold to carp anglers for much more than it’s sold elsewhere.

Now I’m not saying that the carp tax is a bad thing because most tackle brands take the product and make small adjustments with the carp angler in mind but this is often cosmetic changes, for example adding camo to the product.

If these small changes are unessential to you to save you some money then you’ve come to the right place.

The items below are products very similar to products targeted to carp anglers without the carp tax which can be found at a much cheaper price.

Let’s get started…

USB Rechargeable Headlight

USB Rechargeable headlights are the latest trend with carp anglers but can be an expensive purchase. With a good search around online, similar headlights with the same features can be found at half the price.

usb headtorch for carp fishing

The iKross USB Rechargeable headlight includes most of the functionality that you will get with most carp branded headlights such as including White LED’s that can light up to 220 lumens of brightness which provides 500 feet lighting distance on high mode.

The iKross USB Rechargeable headlight includes a powerful red light mode which allows you to better preserve night vision which is ideal for casting in the dark.

The iKross USB Rechargeable headlight can be found for around £20 which is more than half the price of most USB rechargeable headlights you will find in the tackle shops, bargain!

Shrink Tube

If you love rig making and want to save some money, most shrink tubing types are used and sold in the electrification market. It can be often bought in larger quantities and at a much cheaper price than most carp branded shrink tubing.

For example, you can find 1 metre of 1.6mm brown shrink tube on Amazon for around £1.59, this is a great price and will last you a surprisingly long time.

Cookware

Lots of carp brands have their own range of cookware but they can often be expensive but if we look at the camping market you can find a great deal and save a lot of money.

For example, the Aloc Kettle includes heat transfer technology which means you save fuel and will be 30 percent faster to boil. The Aloc Kettle has 0.9L volume capacity, heat proof lid, dedicated drawstring bag and can be found on Amazon for around £10 cheaper than other similar kettles.

Pop Up LED Camping Lantern

If you’re looking for cheap and cheerful LED lights to place around your swim whist night fishing then look no further than these pop up LED camping lanterns from iGadgitz.

These lights can be hanged and placed anywhere, super compact, lightweight and can be found for under £6 on places like Amazon.

Clothing

We all love super stylish carpy clothing but sometimes you need to find some cheap and cheerful alternatives that still work well as bank side clothing.

Green Hoodie

You can find super cheap earthy coloured hoodies on Amazon for under £11, which are are surprisingly comfy and long-lasting.

In the winter months, waterproofs are a must if you plan to be on the bank for the duration but they can be expensive.

Don’t worry, you can find the Regatta Stormbreak Fully Waterproof Leisurewear Jacket for under £11 and will keep you nice and dry in those winter months and also a great item to always keep in the car throughout the year.

Terminal Tackle

If you fish a lot of snaggy or weedy specimen carp waters a popular technique is to drop the lead which brings the carp up in the water and can often be the only way to land these specimen carp but there is only one draw back.

Each lead lost will cost you around £2, which doesn’t sound a lot but you could end up losing around 10 leads per session and this price can build up over a period of time.

The way to save a huge amount of money is to buy leads in bulk. Company such as Buzz Tackle Leads offer bulk leads that are high in quality and each lead will cost you around 60-80 pence.

Bait Containers

If you’re a fan of pre-soaking hookbaits or simply make your own carp baits, these containers from Sourcing Map are so cheap and superb quality.

The Sourcing Map range includes containers ideal for homemade carp liquids or goos, screw lid containers that are ideal for soaking pop ups or nuts and smaller screw lid containers that are ideal for soaking plastic baits such as plastic corn.

A short guide on buying a bivvy

Things to look out for when buying a bivvy:

Make sure the bivvy comes with good quality durable T pegs.

If you are only fishing day sessions then a brolly system is ideal because of it’s light weight design and quick assembly, giving you more time to set up the rest of your gear.

If you’re planning on using the bivvy for longer fishing sessions then make sure the bivvy comes with a heavy duty groundsheet and find out if an overwrap is available as it will remove any condensation, keeping you warm and dry.

If you are planning to fish abroad then a full bivvy system with front and rear ventilation is an excellent choice.

If you’re planning on taking a friend night fishing or just want more space to storage your gear then a two-man bivvy is recommended.

What’s the Best Carp Fishing Hook? Hook Shootout 2017

Hook Shootout 2017This week we take 5 branded carp hooks and make them go head to head in a series of tests to see which hook reigns supreme.

Each hook will endure a strength test, an underwater corrosion test, a sharpness and quality test out of the packet.

This test will also take into consideration price as this is an important factor when choosing a hook.

The reason this test came about, was after a discussion on hook brands with a few regular readers of the blog.

After searching the web for a similar test I found nothing and this is most likely due to carp magazines and website having strong ties with most big tackle brands. If a hook had bad results in a comparison test this would ruin any advertising features with that brand in the future.

This tackle blog is lucky as it’s always been independent in any views and is not biased to any tackle brand, just a carp angler that loves talking about carp fishing tackle.

The hooks going head to head this test are the following:

Fox Edges Arma Point Curve Shank Hooks
Fox Edges Arma Point Curve Shank

Nash Fang Twister Hooks
Nash Fang Twister

Drennan Super Specialist Barbel Hooks
Drennan Super Specialist Barbel Hooks

ESP Cryogen Curve Shanx Hooks
ESP Cryogen Curve Shanx Hooks

Korda Kaptor Weed Kurv Shank Hooks
Korda Kaptor Weed Kurv Shank Hooks

Each packet of hooks are a similar size (size 6) and are a similar pattern which are curve shank pattern.

Let’s begin the test…

Sharpness test

All the hooks seemed to be sharp out of the packet as expected but the hooks that stood out here was the Fox hooks.

They seemed to be a little sharper than the others, having a longer hook point is most likely the reason why they appeared to be the sharpest out of the packet.

Strength test

In the past I’ve a had a few branded hooks open out and damage largely due to the fact they wasn’t the strongest for snaggy type lakes. Using a weak hook can result in losing fish, so this part of the test should be interesting.

The first two rounds of the test consists of adding weight to the hook to see if any hooks would result in opening up or damaging due to the pressure.

The first round I added 1.5lb (0.68kg) of leads to the hook and all hooks past this strength test as you would generally expect.

Next round I added 8lb (3.62kg) of leads to the hooks and yet again every hook past this test.

Due to not having any more weight I could add to the hooks I came up with another not very scientific way to test the strength of each hook… by crushing them with pliers and here’s the results:

  • The Nash/Drennan hooks were very easy to crush.
  • The ESP hooks were a little harder to bend.
  • The Korda and Fox hooks were even harder to bend than the ESP hooks

Quality test

One of the biggest complaints you hear a lot is quality of the hooks out of the packet so this had to be included in the hook shootout. Was there any inadequate hook that would be more suited for the bin than in the lake? Let’s find out.

Every hook seemed to look consistent in quality and sharpness as would be expected.

The Korda hooks stood out in terms of quality as they have a dark PTFE coating with a non coated, corrosion resistant hook point where the other hooks have coating all the way throughout the hook.

Every hook in this test was undamaged and ready to be casted out which I am very pleased to report.

Underwater test

Although this test may not affect the short session angler that regularly uses brand new hooks. For those who need to leave a rig in the water for a larger amount of time choosing a hook that does not easily rust or damage is of paramount importance.

In this test the hooks were placed in water to set times to see what would happened to the hook quality.

After 24 hours there was no signs of rust on each hook. After 48 hours there was still no rust or damage to any of the hooks, resulting in a rethink of how the test would continue.

I decided to try leaving the hooks for a longer duration, which was a few days to see if any of the hooks would survive not rusting or damaging and here’s the results:

  • The Fox hooks were most rusted and large patches of rust
  • The Korda and Drennan hooks had small patches of rust
  • The ESP hooks had one small patch of rust near the eye of the hook
  • The Nash hooks surprisingly did not rust at all

Price

Cost can also be a crucial factor when choosing a hook, using a brand new hook regularly can result in more fish and this is a method that a lot of good anglers use to great effect.

Surprisingly the Nash Fang Twister hooks came out the most expensive and the Drennan Super Specialist Barbel hooks came out the cheapest.

Here’s the price difference below:

Overall results

Due to the strength and sharpness out of the packet, I would say the Fox Edges Arma Point hooks are ideal for short sessions on weedy/snaggy waters.

If you fish a lot of different types of waters, a good all rounder hook is ideal such as the Korda Kaptor hooks or the ESP Cryogen hooks. These hooks have the strength and sharpness to cope with most waters.

If your fishing long sessions and need to leave your rig in the water longer than 24 hours than the Nash Fang Twister hooks should cope in this situation due to its anti corrosive properties.

Best Rod for under £100? The Wychwood C-201 Carp Rods Review

wychwood c201 carp rodsThis week we review the Wychwood C-201 Carp Rods.

It’s been a long time since I upgraded my carp rods so choosing the right rods for my own fishing was very important. Although I was happy with my old JRC rods it was time for a change and went with the Wychwood C-201 Carp Rods.

There were three factors when choosing my new rods; build quality, features/functionality and design. Those 3 factors had to fit into my under £100 per rod budget so finding the right rod was a tricky task. With most high end top quality rods going for as much as £300/£400, the Wychwood C-201 is an ideal mid range rod option.

The cork handle option has an old school look but has all the modern features you expect from a carp rod. The cork handle option is not just a design feature, playing a fish and casting feel great when using a cork handle.

The overall weight of the rod is superb, the lightweight carbon makes casting easy and smooth. The 3lb test curve option is surprisingly strong whilst still giving you a bend in the tip when needed to reduce hook pulls and line breakages.

The rod includes 50 mm butt rings allowing the line to flow through the rod with ease, easily adding more distance to my cast compared to my old JRC rods.

The rods balance well when paired with a Shimano 1400 Carp Reel and look a stylish combination too.

Worth the money?

I have been using these rods for a few months now and I would have to say these are the best carp rods I’ve ever used and are well worth the money. This review will be kept up to date if any issues or any other features are noticed with these rods while in use.

Conclusion

I believe if you’re looking for a top quality, stylish carp rod then I would highly recommend these C-201 Carp Rods by Wychwood.

Check them out in your local tackle shop or you can buy them a little cheaper online, I recommend Amazon or eBay.

Thanks for reading our review of Wychwood C-201 Carp Rods.
