Designed with the modern carp angler in mind, this highly versatile shelter suits day, roaming and even session anglers alike. The speed in which the bivvy can be erected is a unique selling point alone and that’s down to the central block that connects all five ribs and peaked bars together as one unit. The ribs then effortlessly unfold in an accordion-like manner. Moving over to versatility, the Stealth Bloxx features a detachable front that easily transforms the shelter from a one-man bivvy to a handy open-fronted day shelter.

We first came across the Bloxx system last year and were impressed with the speed with which it can be erected, literally one of the quickest around in our experience. The system revolves around a central block with the ribs leading from it. This opens to allow the ribs to splay (it’s simple and the poles never have to be manoeuvred to open them up). The front two poles are then secured under tension and that’s it.

A minimalist space-saving central joint allows the user to utilise maximum headroom especially when used in conjunction with the supplied storm poles. Benefiting from eight 8mm fibreglass ribs the shelter is light enough for a simple day session yet durable enough for a much longer time on the bank. Two rear vents allow for instant internal climate control and 10,000mm material is certainly more than adequate for our typically wet climate. £189.

Sadly, given the inclement conditions over the time that this shelter was first here for testing, I have only been able to do one night under it, and used it for a couple of short, afternoon sessions. I will put that right by using it a couple more times over the spring and, all being well, report back. From what I have experienced so far, this is an improvement on the original Groundhog and this can be seen in many key areas. The material remains drum-tight in cold conditions and there’s plenty of room underneath what is, essentially, a luxury brolly-type shelter but with all the bells and whistles.

It was actually about four months ago that I was asked to take out the Groundhog SF and test it over time. As a devout brolly user, Marc Coulson thought me the best-placed member of the team to get out and put it through its paces. I was happy with my traditional brolly previously and wondered how much better this could be, but I have been hugely impressed by it so far. The SF stands for Space Frame, which allows increased headroom inside.

The timeless Titan gets a modern makeover!

Total Carp Staff  |  Jul 18, 2012  |  0 comments
The word Titan has always been synonymous with super-strong bivvies from Nash. The unique spreader-block system and the resulting angle of the poles provide ultimate rigidity and impressive internal space. What’s more, the aerodynamic shape, consistent throughout the range, helps ensure that they will never be uprooted. An evolution of the original Titan bivvy, this new all-season brolly version has a slightly smaller footprint, in mind of it being usable in even the smallest of swims.

UK Exclusive First Review! The improved version of Prologic’s Frame-X bivvy, I first got a glimpse of the X1 at Carp In The Park, but then more recently I saw it properly while out on the 7 Top Tips shoot with Prologic-backed Rik Johnson this month. I was immediately impressed by how quickly the innovative X-Frame design allowed Rik to set it up, literally a few seconds, even quicker than a pram-hood design. Once up, it was also absolutely drum tight and extremely solid. Even my efforts to shake the life out of it saw the X1 barely yield an inch.
