Fox has returned to the larger head style of its top-end alarms, with the NTXr at the top of the tree and this, the NXr sitting just beneath it. As far as I can tell, the main difference is that the NXr only comes with a blue LED option and an ever-so-slightly lower spec. So far the NXr has performed brilliantly and I am hugely impressed with the sensitivity in particular. I dreamed, as a youngster, of owning a set of the legendary RX Digitals and, while the head size may be a little large for some people’s liking, these remind of those heady days.

As a huge fan of the old RX Digital, an iconic alarm that Fox produced 10 or so years ago, I went off Fox alarms when they started to produce much smaller and comparatively complicated units. After such faux pas as the EOS, Fox has burst back to the top with its current Micron ranges, in particular the NXr and the range-topping NTXr. The slightly larger head looks much better – how a Fox alarm should look, in my opinion. Although I rarely venture far from my rods, the water I often fish is surrounded by trees, so a strong signal is needed even if I am just sharing a brew with a mate in the next swim.

Numerous products caught our eye at the Tackle & Guns Trade Show and you lot have plenty to look out for in 2013. However, this year we decided to choose our favourite and give it a bit of coverage. After much deliberation, the Fox Black Label Indicator range edged it as best new product of the show. Following on from the phenomenal Black Label rod support, the indicators are extremely impressive and offer the user a complete bite-indication setup that can be tailored to suit any water and conditions.

I’ve long been a user of Muddy Waters gear and must declare at this point that I am a massive fan. Muddy’s were the first indicators that I saw featuring a clip specifically designed to aid slack-line fishing. They work perfectly well in all circumstances, but Muddy’s Kipper Clip was designed to actually grip the line and show the tiniest movement in the line, no matter how slack. Many companies have copied these but they’re yet to be improved on, in my opinion.
