    Are you talking about the winning bid of $29.50 ? If so that was me , lol I figured they are worth the extra couple bucks. I noticed the ones that were going for around 20 bucks are only 60db (volume) compared to 110db for the ones I picked up and also the cheaper ones are not waterproof like the higher priced ones. I'm sure the others are still a bargin, I just figured it was worth a couple bucks to not worry about them getting wet and will be sure to hear them scream. lol

    How much were the bank sticks? Do you need to get the weighted thingys to make the bite alarm work? If ya could send me the link so I could see what they look like. I was thinking about getting the rod pod but if the bank sticks work well I'll give them a shot. Thanks
  6. Dude you nuts :eek:

    He just offered them to me for $24.00 a pair and here is the offer from Ebay that I rec'd via email:

    Shawn I think you just added a new meaning to "On the cheap"- what the heck! It was what,something like 15 to your
    Hey Trky Do you need the weighted things to use those bank sticks and indicators? If so what type do you have? I have seen AK's with the solid rod holding them but there were some with a string I saw on line. Was just wondering if one set was better than the other.

    bigchessie..its just personal preferences.. as long as it tells me i have a fish on, it doesn't matter if its the hangers(the ones with strings) or a swinger(like mine).. the main reason why i like mine is because i don't have to touch my line when using it.. its a gated system instead of clipping the indicator on the line..

    Hey what would a set of yours cost me?

    too dang much.. lol.. really tho..i don't know.. i got them as a set, it came with my old rod pod, alarms..
  16. I just used mine yesterday for the first time so I am nobody to ask LOL
  17. Big Chessie...the hangers/swingers aren't necessary at all (though many would definitely recommend them). I'm on my second year with alarms and still don't use swingers/hangers. It just let's you know if your line goes slack, like when a carp picks up a bait and comes toward you. Even then, you can usually tell...particularly if you use large enough weights. Nice luxury to have but not required...I prefer the screaming runs anyway :D .
  18. My 1st one yesterday was so cool LOL

    Ak is's personal preference. I used the swingers when I was casting MEGA distances at Erie...just for the heavier weight. But since 99.9998% of my fishing is fairly close, I just use the hangers. You can get the hangers with the gates....have seen them a few times....I'll have to try to find a link.

    As for those alarms...yep....CHEAP CHEAP :D No need for all the bells and whistles. As long as it will wake me up at night, that is all I'm concerned about :)
