    You did say in your original post that you was not too worried about a receiver and wanted mid-range alarms,

    Now you are talking receivers and top end alarms like delkims or Neville’s, it’s probably best to go to a tackle shop and look at what you want for the money you want to spend

    Only you can make your mind up on what you need to suit the type of fishing you do, but just be careful on what you do buy do not go buying under gunned or over gunned

    i use the nash s5 alarms when barbel fishing and they are spot on, and also use the nash s5r when im carping.

    both are excellent alarms with great battery life, the s5 isnt very loud but suits my needs when barbel fishing or if you are carping but not sleeping.
    the s5r has a proper volume and can be quite loud, but also has a wireless receiver option so you can have the alarms quite low but then adjust the receiver accordingly if you are nodding off.

    Yeah im.not quite sure what I want to be honest.

    I'll be perching a for the rest of the season now as I set myself a goal of getting a 3lber by the end of the season. Then next season ill be back on the rivers carping mostly evenings fishing over prebaited spots with the odd night thrown in there which is why I'm unsure about a receiver as worried I won't wake up to just the alarm.
    But it's only about 60-70 difference for two s5 or s5r.
    And my local shop sells both so im gonna go an have look at both
    Shame I can't get hold of the old wychwood solace ones now as I used to love my old ones

    The S5 isn't very loud particularly when the battery is old! Renew the battery however and it will awaken Whitty from his slumbers!

    Although there is a volume control on the s5 isn't really that loud, the s5r is a PROPER volume control.
