Loved the look of them....

 

But the on/off switch was so small and hard to turn with cold hands  :roll:

 

also any hint of a frost the line roller wouldnt turn.

 

if there was a blade of grass between you and the alarms the reciever wouldnt pick them up.

 

also got ev plus now....always said i wouldnt get delkims because everyone has them. Now i got them, i can see why. Great alarms  :P

I think i can honestly say that i've not bought any dodgy stuff at all over the last few years .

I HAVE got hold of some awesome bits & bobs though , such as ;

Chub bivvy tension bars

Fox Rapide PVA system

Stows

PVAPRODUCTS wide mesh PVA

Enterprise Snagsafe run rings

Cyprinus Carp Cradle

TFG crosspod

 

The list is endless .

Happy days

Best tackle I have bought:

Shimano Aerlex's, the old version, around 2005, still in use on marker and spod.

Century SP's, a mate is still using them, or any of my Century rods over the last 20 years.

Nash Outlaw Hurricane bivvy and winter skin, cheap, but long lasting, better than many modern shelters, only now on its way out after a few large storms.

Badger Quad Rod Pod, aluminium, Central boss system, goalpost, can be used as pod or sticks, cheap, only now replaced buzzer bars this yeAr.

Army Bergen. Has outlasted numerous rucksacks from tackle manufacturers.

 

Mainline, take your pick from two budget lines that are better than more expensive counterparts;

Daiwa Sensor

Gardner Pro blend.

 

Worst items, and even more amazing is I made same mistake more than once!

Nash Rucksacks, broken zips, torn compartments, broken straps, and just rubbed through the casing. Quantity 3!

Nash rod holdalls. The rod ties or laces inside, break away from the inner and to replace them you need to cut through the liner and thread (shoe) laces through the holes you have created.

I have the Nash s5r and yes the In off button is a night mare.

 

I made a small cap that screws on to the present button with a grub screw.

 

I now have a round on of button am that stick out and looks wicked.

 

Awful design on nashes behalf.

 

Haven't had any reciever problems as of yet

Dont get me wrong its a really good bivvy but i just cant get my head around the mesh on the bivvy  itself, it just means that you cant use it without the wrap, which is what i sometimes want to do.

 

Apart from that I have no other problems with it so to be fair it was maybe a little harsh putting it on my 'worst' list but i couldnt think of any other tackle that i dont get on with. I LOVE USING IT ALL!!!!! :)
