There is no doubt that Delkim make the best alarms available.I have used Delks since the very first conversions and have never had one let me down.They have been out in the some horrendous weather,one has even been dropped in the water after a couple of days drying out works a treat.The battery life is superb.
But if you want three you are going to have to look at second hand market,as even the EV's are 50 each and if you want a wirless set the TXI's are over 120 each.
I have heard some very good things about the GMF alarms they are very well priced and from what I have heard the best budget alarm available.

Yeah until they go wrong and fox tell you they dont repair them and you have to buy a new one.
Have heard so many horror stories about fox customer service.

my uncle gave me a bag full of the original optonics that he used to have, it had about 8 of them in there! so i use them, brilliant alarms and theyve even fallen in the lake a couple of times and still work! and pretty sensitive also!


work a treat - but i think they're a collecters item now! lol

Yeah that will sort the problem out for the first year if fox can be bothered to agree that the shop can replace it,they normally insist it is sent back to them to investigate and then take forever to agree replacment.
After the first year I can tell you Fox will not want to know,Have seen it happen so many times.
Most of there alarms they will not reapair even during the warranty they just replace them if you are lucky.After that it is your problem fox will not touch alarms that are out of warranty.
Unlike Delkim who have a two year warranty and even after warranty there customer service is second to none,you will not find many complaints about Delkim customer service,unlike fox the angling forums are littered with complaints about fox.
You may pay more for delks in the first place but at least you know if something goes wrong,it will be sorted ASAP.
