  1. Yes as you said. Nothing to write home about however I suppose you get what you pay for. However if something breaks there customer service is top notch . I broke the block on my typhoon storm bivvy(totally my fault as i found out after watching the setup vid on youtube) they sent a new block out no questions asked within 2 days. I thought that was pretty good of them to do so to be fair.
  2. The base essentially doesnt have the vents. The base hq had the vents. Ive got a base 2 man and picked it up for approx £150 with a winter skin. Good bit of kit for the money 👍
  3. I currently use a set of sonik sk3 xtrs but the romantic in me is dying for a set of cork handle rods. Can anyone recommend a set that would cost around £100 per rod. I was looking at the sonik vader x cork handles but not sure it would be a downgrade from what im already using 😂
  4. Removed a washer and the line lay is now spot on. Cheers lads, even converted them to quick drag by taking the spring out the spool caps 🤣🤣
  5. Has anyone else had the issue of the line going onto the spool like a cone on their reels. Albeit there an old set of s5000t’s and have been the same for years but the time has come to re spool and dont want new line to cone like me line is now... any advice appreciated cheers
  6. evening gents can anybody explain the difference between the trakker tempest composite mb and the versions 1/2? apart form the massive difference in price, it doesn't seem to be clear the main differences. cheers
  7. i generally catch more fishing 2 rods, don't know why but I feel more confident with 2 rods and tend to fish more accurately..
  8. I am comfortable with approx 90 yards with my 3.25s.. so anything 100 and over really looking at around £100 per rod cheers
  9. Currently I have a set of fox warrior s 2.75’s which i couple with either fox eos 10000 or daiwa emblem s5000t’s or for longer distance fishing sonik sk3 xtr 3.25’s which I am looking to get rid of i want a stiffer rod for fishing at long distances can anybody recommend a good value casting tool? Cheers lads
  10. Ive got 3 wychwood solace with reciever had them since 2013 and to be fair for the money i find are fantastic and they look good too. Only problem was one alarm has revently lost its tone but i left it in a bowl of salt over night and put it on a radiator for an hour and its now fine !
  11. Great bit of kit mate had one for a year and would never go back to a normal bedchair where ive got to put my bag on and off it !!! Nightmare !!
  12. Ive got the rlx flat 6 myself and is brilliant in the respect that you can carry the bag on the bedchair . However im a larger kind of guy and would kill for the rlx wide boy its just a tad too small lol
  13. Hi guys just wondered if storm poles are a standard size as i want to get some for my supa brolly however i want to get them as cheap as possible , also what size would i need to get ! Cheers
  14. Hi guys just bought a supa brolly wrap to turn my brolly into a bivvy, although i have a royale classic bivvy , i find it quicker and easier to set the supa brolly up and thought if i had the wrap it would give me a twin skin . Anyone have any reviews on it as i havnt used it yet . Cheers
  15. Thanks for the replys guys , do fox do warrior s in 2.5 ? I havnt seen them
  16. Hi guys can anyone reccomend any decent 2.5 tc rods please , i have 2.75s and although nice to play fish on im looking for softer tips again as my lake isnt particularly big . Cheers
  17. Has anyone had any experience of the eos baitrunner reels ? Looking to sell my emblem s5000ts and get a set of 3 . Cheers
  18. Ive got s5000ts on my fox warrior 2.75s imo they are balanced quite well . Ive got windcast brs that i use on my 3.25s but i always use my 2.75s with s5000ts they are bulletproof and do everything i want them too . Brilliant reels
  19. Good ideas guys . Ive come close to throwing it in the lake a few times. Ill buy some grease for the poles or something that should do it
  20. Hi guys ive got one of these . Although i do love it i have a night mare trying to pack it away as i cant get the poles to break down . Almost end up fighting with it . Does anyone else have this Problem Or am i missing a simple trick ? Cheers
