The Carp Spirit HD3 Alarms come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.
Description: compact alarms and receivers.
Alarm specifications: ergonomic head design; ultra-bright LEDs with six colour options; sensitivity control; forward and drop-back bite differentiation; built-in Night Light function with long-life power technology; on/off button; power socket for coupling with illuminated bobbins; ABS body construction includes a soft rubber inlay to protect rod blanks; protective covers; 20-second latching LED on the alarm and receiver; low-battery warning; built-in memory function to store your settings; a rolling code system that allows extra alarms to be purchased and programmed to an existing receiver.
Receiver specifications: a range of 100-150 m; Silent and Vibration function; tone and volume control; comes with a landyard and table stand.
My verdict: with a growing demand for compact alarms, Carp Spirit have done away with speakers, relying on the receiver to emit sound.
Without speakers, the small alarms are more waterproof, and the LEDs function as you’d expect.
They require a 12V V23GA battery, which should last a long time, as it doesn’t have to charge speakers.
I like the idea, as it makes perfect sense. The receiver is powered by a 9V PP3 battery.
Packed with really useful features. I would happily give them a go.
Prices: Three alarms and a receiver £109.99. Four alarms and a receiver £134.99.
