    I have 100 pounds worth of vouchers which can be spent in argos which I want to use to buy some fishing gear.

    Has anyone tried the bite alarms that they sell they have two options: -

    2 x keenets catch carp siren bite alarms reduced to 20

    or

    3 x Giant bite alarms with case

    which is the best are they waterproof?

    I was also planning to but their ginat carp rod reel / combo is it any good

    any feedback would be much appreciated

    if the keenets catch carp alarms are as cheap and nasty as their rods and luggage(in my opinion)i wouldn`t bother

    why don't you go for the wychwood rod/reel combo for 50, ok its a bit more and you dont get the terminal tackle, but that can be picked up relatively cheaply and will be of better quality than you get in an Argos starter kit. See the wychwood reviews in the tackle section.

    my mate has the keenets alarms and uses them with out hassle. ive just bought a pair, they seem ok.

    the giant landing net for 15, is bloody huge and seems to be very strong, i put my 3 year old in it and he fits with room to spare.
