Bite Alarm Info 10 Years ago Karma: 14
I've been looking into the whole euro method of carping. I do like the methods and equipment used. Rod pods and bite alarms being the first on the list. Can someone explain how the bite alarms work? Are they used with the reel in freespool? Are they sensitive enough to detect a subtle "tap,tap" kinda bite? Do they attach to pod or the rod itself? Are they durable? What is a good alarm on the market? Thanks

Hi Carphunter420,
most bite alarms screw into a bank stick or rod pod though a very few attach to the rod. I prefer the ones that attach to the pod. For carp they are used with either the reel in freespool or the baitruner engaged as when carp hit they usually hit hard and could quite easily take a rod and reel in the water on a first run. Most bite alrams will register a tap,tap kind of bite. I have the fox microns though I have had delkims in the past and they are good also.

Well I just Recently Last Year Bought a Rod Pod and Alarms and Swingers, but really havent got a chance to use them yet, because of my Rods are to Heavy. But I just got a New graphite 8.8 Carp rod made by Penn. the alarms I purchased are the Cheaper of the Alarms. But I hope to get to try them Soon. but Here is the Pic of my Setup that I use!!!
