  1. I’ve got the Ci4s in 5500 - absolutely stunning reels. Wouldn’t think twice about getting the 14000’s if I needed the extra distance. You won’t regret it. Make sure you play around with the washers to adjust the line lay. Mine came more front heavy. A thick and a thin washer sorted that out - nice and flat.
  2. IMO avoid the fishing manufactures, and go for a decent walking boot.
  3. They came in 3s or 4s as a set. I used to have the Red, Yellow, Green set.
  4. I assumed that the figure quoted by BC included that - hence the difference?
  5. Plus glue, fittings, expanding foam.
  6. I used to use the euro swingers. Not really sure why they ever had three holes anyhow.
  7. Why don’t you just buy three of these? https://www.tackleuk.co.uk/Shop/CarpFishingSwingersIndicators/Fox-Mk2-Swinger-Tags.htm
  8. Make sure you always do some sort of signed for delivery for anything of any value. If the buyer disputes that the item never arrived, Paypal will insist that you provide proof of postage and delivery.
  9. Can’t go wrong with a Shimano Baitrunner 👍🏻
  10. Recently seen these from a few different companies - South Custom reels, Custom Reels UK etc. Anyone got any experience with these? The videos seem to look like they make quite a significant difference, but wonder if that’s the case?
  11. I own Free Spirit S range in 12 / 2.75. Had some build quality issues at the start - which got resolved - but they have been fantastic rods. Wouldn’t dream of changing them, unless I needed extra range - and even then, would never part with them. The Hi-S range rods are apparantly lovey as well. However, I was in Angling Direct this week and drooling over the Century C2s.
  12. Nash already have: http://nashtackle.co.uk/products/view/air-cradle-and-air-cradle-monster
  13. Aqua combi mat folds in half and has a nice shoulder carry handle
  14. I have recently got the Aqua Deluxe Roving Rucksack. I absolutely love it. Fits my needs perfectly, love having a modular system with bags to fit in certain areas. It means that I know where everything is, at all times. All the benefits of a decent Carryall, but the flexibility of a rucksack.
  15. Ianain has made a massive point though - if you sell direct to the customer, there is no middleman (Tackleshop) that also wants a cut of the profits - and therefore prices can be obviously cheaper. Boilies are sold in 5kg bags - but with an £8 delivery charge - which means they work out at £8 per kilo. Smaller companies with less overheads - advertising, staff, office space, website etc etc. Personally I like going into a shop, touching what I’m going to buy.
