A short guide on buying bite alarms

bitealarmguideWhen buying alarms you have to certainly think about what type of alarms you are looking for. Judge the alarms on your preferred look, functionality and price.

If you don’t need a lot of functionality then a simpler alarm is ideal for you as there is less to go wrong.

Before you buy your alarm I would advise finding out what batteries you will need as some batteries are harder to find.

Make sure a receiver is available for the alarm, if receiver compatibility is something you’re looking for. Some alarms on the market don’t have an receiver available for them such as some of the budget alarms featured in this guide.

Receivers are handy for situations such as fishing at night and if you need to walk away from your rods for a moment.

Take your time deciding the correct alarms for you, watch a few videos or ask other anglers what alarms they use.
