Default Very cheap bite alarms at Sports Direct

Spotted these at my local Sports Direct this afternoon, 2.99 Not for me as I have plenty but maybe ok for somebody.

I picked up one a couple of months back when I went into my Cheltenham store, I feel so out of place in these stores, whatever happened to Burtons? Anyway never used one before in my life and I still never have, good to go though c/w PP3 battery just in case I feel the need.

I don't think you should be promoting bite alarms on a barbel forum! Can't stand hearing the bloody things on a river

They'll look the bee's knees with a pair of 3lb TC dragon carp rods perched on them.
