Bite alarms are an essential item of all carp anglers’ tackle and have always been an area in which to avoid the cheaper varieties. However, JRC is changing all that by offering affordable, all-weather alarms fit for use and backed with a two-year warranty. With three models in the Radar C range, prices begin at a mere £19. 99 and go up to £34.

Oh, finally, there’s an internal LED, which lights up and is available in all of the Delkim colours. I genuinely can’t wait to use these on a more long-term basis because I think they’re absolutely spot-on and cannot speak highly enough of them at this early stage. (MC)As much as I will admit to being a bit of a tackle tart, I always place a product’s functionality over what it looks like, as I explained to somebody on Instagram recently when they said these didn’t look very carpy. The mind boggles.

A brand-new range from JRC encompasses three affordable, weatherproof alarms designed specifically for the modern-day carp angler. The introductory Radar C1 is the cheapest alarm in the range at a mere £19. 99. Housed in a durable, high-impact, ABS material, these reliable units feature bright red LEDs with a 20-second latching feature.

The super-compact body of the S5 is similar in appearance to Nash’s more expensive, all-singing, all-dancing alarm, but features just an on/off switch. It also has a built-in line guard and red run and latching LED. I found, in testing, that the indication was superb, especially for an alarm in this price bracket. There is a remote version available (£49.

First impressions were that they look great in their waterproof casing, which has been subject to some extremely harsh rainfall and even a brief dip in the margin, yet the alarms continues to work with no problem whatsoever. The heads are simple in design, with two dials, one for volume and the other for tone, allowing the head to be set to silent and only the receiver will alert you to any activity, which is great for when you want to be discreet, as discreet as you can be with the bright blue LED. The power switch operates as the sensitivity function, giving the choice of two settings, which has been more than ample for the scenarios that I have been fishing in. For ease, and being a little bit lazy, I like to keep my alarms attached to my banksticks.

The new Centium DFXs offer you the opportunity to upgrade your bite alarms without breaking the bank. As you would expect, they boast a string of great features. Five-point sensitivity settings, volume and tone allow you to personalise the alarms to your situation. Each one is supplied with optional interchangeable light filter so that you can change the LED to any colour that you wish.

I have been using the TF Gear Dave Lane Mag Runner alarms for a little over three months and it’s so far so good. The set comprises three alarms and a receiver unit and what fantastic value for money it is. I like simplicity when it comes to alarms because simplicity works and there’s not a lot that can go wrong. Each alarm has an on/off switch; bright, luminous roller wheel and a switch to link up with the receiver.

I had a sneak preview of these alarms around a year ago, when they were still in the early stage of development. At first I liked the compact heads, dedicated remote and the eye-catching orange presentation box. I’ve seen hundreds of sets of remote alarms, though, so was only so impressed by what at first seemed yet another, albeit made by Fox, obvious bonus. However, when I learnt their prospective prices I was gobsmacked.

The smaller brother of the popular RSI Siren, the S5 is a well-built, compact, feature-loaded bite alarm that won’t break the bank. Designed in England with a minimal understated finish it looks the part and features include a latching and run LED light system, adjustable volume control and super-sensitive indication. Each alarm is supplied in a soft PVC case to protect it and ensure it remains in top working condition for years to come. The S5 is probably the most feature-packed and smartest-looking alarm for the price bracket.

Occasionally we are asked by companies to give fishing gear a more long-term review. A year ago, Fox asked me to review its NXr alarms and receiver set and they have stood up to my punishment and still look virtually brand new. Bite alarms have a hard life, being thrown around in your tackle bag and subjected to rain and splashes of spod mix, so a reliable set is a must. Although I am a small guy, I have a habit of throwing gear around, so they have to be sturdy.
