Why use bite alarms?

As we all know electronic bite alarms are now an integral bit of kit for the modern day carp angler. Fishing with bite alarms basically means you can use your time more productively instead of keeping an eye on your rod tip or float for bite indication. Time can be spent doing other things whether it’s scanning the water to locate feeding/moving carp or simply tying up new rigs or PVA bags.

Carp fishing using bite alarms with a receiver is a must if you intend to night fish or go on regular patrols around a lake in search of fish. This means you can simply have the receiver box close to you or on you at all times and you won’t miss a single beep from any of your bite alarms – job done!Delkim TX-I + BITE ALARM

What is the best bite alarm?

That said let’s move onto talking about the different bite alarms out there – because there are many different brands on the market covering a whole range of prices. To be honest though the price of alarms has dropped dramatically over the years due to the expanding market and better technology involved in making these devices.

I think it’s fair to say that one of the most popular brand of bite alarms on the market is the DELKIM. These alarms are used and trusted by many top carp anglers around the country including many of the lads off Thinking Tackle! Please see below the reasons why, including my review of the DELKIM bite alarms.

DELKIM BITE ALARM REVIEW

As I’ve already mentioned above the DELKIM range of bite alarms are probably the most popular carp fishing bite alarm in the UK and around the world. The reason being is that they are a trusted and reliable brand and are used by many top carp anglers. You would be hard pushed to find any negative reviews about these devices.

The DELKIM electronic bite alarms are very well designed and solidly built which means they are very easy to operate with some great features, and are sturdy and fully water proof, making them ideal for all weather conditions.

Even though some people might think they are quite pricey, the DELKIM alarms if looked after should last you a lifetime.  Not only that, there are now a few different models to choose from which makes the devices more affordable for a lot more people – DELKIM Ev Plus is the cheapest bite alarm, then the DELKIM Standard Plus and finally the best selling flagship model DELKIM Tx-i.

DELKIM ELECTRONIC BITE ALARM RANGE

DELKIM Ev Plus – Price £58.50-£63.50 (Purple LED model is £63.50)

DELKIM Ev Plus – Electronic Bite Alarm Product Review

This is the cheapest bite alarm out of the DELKIM range. But still it has most of the great features which this brand has become famous for over the years. The Rx Plus Pro – Mini Receiver can be used in conjunction with the Tx Plus – Micro Transmitter. But the DELKIM Ev Plus and Standard Plus alarms have to be permanently connected to the Micro Transmitter. I think this model of bite alarm is great value for money and one that I will be buying for my next upgrade.

Delkim Standard Plus and Tx-i Plus video review – a must see video by Danny Fairbrass.

DELKIM Tx-i Plus – Price £122.50 (Purple Haze LED model is £127.50)

DELKIM Tx-i Plus – Electronic Bite Alarm Product Review

This is DELKIM’s top of the range bite alarm. To be honest at first it seems quite pricey at £122.49 but the main added feature with this alarm is that it has a built in aerial so it can be picked up by Rx Plus Pro Mini Receiver. This is a great advantage because obviously you don’t need the Tx Plus Micro Transmitter. Also the receiver can pick up transmissions from up to 200 metres away! That’s more than enough for most waters especially in the UK and on the continent. Features highlighted in RED below are not found on the Standard Plus model.
