  1. Hi I'm looking for a set of alarms with a receiver to buy for my brother for Xmas. I'm not looking for anything special just a cheapish set of 3 that have a receiver. Any recommendations? Thanks
  2. Yeah and they say a minimum of 15lbs and my hook link needs to be coated is all they say
  3. Hey guys I'm due to be going to a lake in France for a week next summer that has carp up to around 50lbs in it what mainline would you guys suggest i use? It's going to be the first time iv fished anywhere with fish this sort of size so any other advice would also be welcome. Thanks
  4. So I'm relatively new to carping as most of you will probably be able to tell from what I'm about to ask. I've been looking at buying some new reels as at the minute I'm just using some cheap baitrunners that I was given. So my question is I've looked at some reels that don't have a baitrunner on them so how exactly do they you set them up when fishing to allow the fish to take line in the same way as the baitrunners allow? Is it just a case of adjusting the drag to give less tension and then tightening the drag before you strike? Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I said I'm new to all this. Thanks!
