Nash Siren R3 Bite Alarm

Having spent the past couple of weekends attending packed angling shows, and seeing the crowds flocking around the Nash stand, there is little doubt in my mind that the latest Nash Siren R3 bite alarm system is going to sell like crazy.

The alarms themselves have integral rubberised snag ears and feature ‘Intelligent Sensing’ microchip technology to eliminate false indications while giving you an insight into what’s actually happening in your swim.

To keep the technical jargon to a minimum, this sensing system is based around changes of speed in the movement of the line. You’ll suffer no more irritating bleeps from wind, undertow, weed and variable currents when fishing in running water or lakes with a heavy tow.

Best of all, there won’t be any nagging doubts over the those unexplained single bleeps that have dogged all carp anglers ever since electronic bite alarms came on the scene.

The R3 has an extreme working range of more than 400m, and while I would never encourage anyone to leave their rods unattended, or indeed be anywhere near that distance away from them, the strength of thee radio signal can be critical when the rods are not in a clear line of sight, or surrounded by dense foliage.

Price: £109 per head
