Nash Siren R3 Bite Alarm
The Nash Siren R3 bite indicator is a one-of-a-kind bite alarm with Intelligent Sensing. This alarm has a roller wheel like a normal alarm but whereas normal bite alarms sound every time the magnet in the roller passes the reed switch. The roller on the R3 alarm detects the speed at which the line moves, so if it detects different speeds it sounds but if it's just a slow gentle movement it won't even if the wheel fully rotates. That means an end to irritating false detection that other bite alarms suffer with. How many times do you sit there get a bleep and say, it's just wind? Once you get used to using the R3 alarm and get to trust it you won't say that. The times I've sat there and had one bleep and reeled in to find out I'd been done. There are three sensitivity settings, One bleep on the setting is for the lowest on the speed sensing mode. This setting is for when the weather is terrible or it is a good choice when using them on the river. Two bleeps is what I use mine on, this is still on the sensing mode but it's more sensitive than one but will still eliminate a lot of false indications. Three bleeps turn the alarm to a standard roller alarm for use on runs waters but to be honest mine always stays on setting two and I've learnt NOT to ignore the R3 Bite alarm.
This is a Siren R3 users review who bought them from CPS Tackle
"When I first started fishing a few years back, the first set of alarms my dad gave me were the Nash Siren S5's and I loved them they did everything I wanted to do at that moment in time, indicated when I have a fish and to be honest when I first started I thought these were the best alarms I'd get... but then I got the Siren R3's and wow by far the best alarms on the market, the indication on these alarms are next to nothing, I'm a real believer when I say "when the R3's sound you DO NOT ignore them" 3 bleeps, 2 bleeps or even 1 bleep if this alarm sounds get ready to jump out of your sleeping bag and strike into that fish! Like most people, I love my sleep and when other alarms are sounding in windy or rainy conditions I just don't want to hear them, but you don't get a bleep out of the Sirens. After using the Sirens for a while I decided to lend them out to a few close friends as they've always used other bite alarms that are available on the market, what can I say, they loved them!! One of them came back to me and said that it was a rainy, windy horrible evening and he sat in complete silence with not a bleep coming through the receiver.. but then "beep, beep," he said he thought in his head "is that the wind?" as he'd been used to blaming it on that but no he went and put on as many layers as he could and picked up his rod, to his surprise a carp was on the other end weighing in at 29.6lb if he had blamed it on the wind would he off landed his PB fish? A few weeks later he came in a bought 3 and a receiver!"
