    Anyone heard any thing good or bad about them yet???????

    Im thinking of changing all my gear around this winter and im looking for something totally different than everyone else and those alarms would be a perfect starting point. Im just waiting to hear how they compare to the top end FOX and Delkims first.

    well..u dont wanna hear my honest opinion i'm sure..but here goes anyways..
    its all cosmatic maan..just because its carbon fiber looking outside doesn't mean they can be the latest and the greatest.. i would definitely wait for awhile until more people over there uses it..
    what u have now is what i ultimately wants anyways..:)

    Thanks Spiff, ive been collecting articles on them and didnt think of looking there.

    AK, dont get me wrong my Fox SX's are sweet compared to the MX's i have, but i do want a wider range of functions, ect.
    The reason i was thinking of the Solar alarms is because EVERYONE uses Fox......i dont think i like the Delkims, I think they just look junky for the $ they want for them.....plus i thought the Solar alarms might go better with a Solar SS pod.... :cool: ...also something different than the norm...geez about everyone has FOX pods(i know i have 2 of them).

    LOL...Greg, let me know what you get so i dont "copy"..lol
    Yea my thoughts too, if they make one of the best pods...thier alarms should be too. Everything ive read about them puts them equal or above the best/top dogs on the market....will see.

    Hey man, when are we going to hook up and do some carping...your area or mine, makes no diff. to me bro.

    getting greg out of the house is harder than heck..and he doesn't venture anywhere far..heh heh. :D
    he knows that fall is coming..and the west branch fish will soon be feeding again...i can already feel the force.....can you??? :)
    and speakin of alarm..i'm going to try and train Rover to wag his tail when the alarm goes off..maybe have him bark or something too..for pizzazz.. :p it would definitely be different..

    yeah,we need to hook up.i have been wanting to do
    some fishing down at Hoover :rolleyes: or any place
    that has the chance of getting a few largeish Buffs,as
    well as carp.but its hard to get there with no transportation :D

    the fishing down in Columbus seems awsome,so many big lakes,ect
    with BIG carp and buffalo.the lakes up here suck!all the big fish lakes
    are private,weed choked,or have set hrs.iam through with the small
    fish,it gets OLD.i wont fish unless the water gives a chance for big carp.
    which explains my recent lack of fishing :( I NEED TO GET A THIRTY!!!!!
    this year!

    i cant bring myself to haul the gear out,fish hard and only catch,
    if iam lucky, a 20 at best.know what i mean?

    YES Greg, i know what you mean, but big carp are harder to find and catch than big Flathead catfish..guess i just need more time on the bank searching for the parts to complete the carp puzzel.

    But then again, i'll take a 20 any day over ZERO..lol

    Also, im going to try to figure out these big river Buffs....you'll be the first to know and get an invite when do.

    John,i know Mog. has some big carp,and some HUGE grassers,
    but the lake is still unfishable.the weeds are too thick still to
    give a proper presentation in ANY form.i was over there the other
    day and it looks bad.i seriously dubt you could give a good presen-
    tation even in late Nov.the bottm would just be covered in dead and
    decaying weeds.also it would be extremly difficult to land them,with
    the thick weed mats and the shallow water near the bank,almost impos-
    sible without getting in the water.another problem is the fact that most
    of the bank is lined with trees,makening it hard to work with longer rods.
    however iam stil going to have a few more looks over there and will
    probably fish it this fall.

    Scott,hey now i'll take the 20's too :D dont get me wrong.its
    just i have done the 20's now for awhile,and its always nice
    to have a fish that size on the mat.but i can only imagine what
    its like to put a 30+ common on the mat.a 40,50 would just be
    unreal.esspecially if its from OH waters,it would be lot more
    meaningful to me atleast,than going to Texas or NY to get it. ;)
