Notice your RX have the wear signs on the left side. Same as mine, must be the case. Think I’ll stick with the RX.

Great review but I'm sticking with my elderly Fox Micron RX for the retro looks, vibro/wheel and simplicity in operation

I actually think the Mel&Kim new styling is a bit plain. I think they’d have looked better with a raised circle around the speaker as a little retro nod to the old std models.

Nicely done Heff!

Those Fox Beepers do indeed look a bit “CHUNK”y.

Off to work,... need the cash to buy the latest and greatest!!

So the RX+ have been faultless since i got them. No issues, actually liked the roller wheel after years of owning delkim txi+.
As with the RX+, the styling grew on me, wasnt particularly keen on either at first.
Side by side, the txi-d is smaller than the RX+. It looks a little more purposeful than the RX+, however i dont dislike the look of them. Build quality delkim have really upped their game. The screw on battery cover, the aerial housing, all an improvement on the previous model. For some reason they are still using the wired battery connector, as in the previous model, which although only needs touching when changing the batteries, is still a week point that im sure they could have designed out.
Both alarms are solid, and both have their own merits in terms of looks. The RX+ do look huge when side by side though.
Features wise, the RX+ is pretty simple in comparison to the delks. 3 position switch, off/on/night mode. Volume tone and sensitivity, and brightness and led colour change. All have an individual dedicated button/dial. The delkim however initially seems quite complicated, press 2 buttons on/off, access set up mode to change tone, beep speed etc. However once set up, response and volume are the only dials you really need on the bank. Colour change leds would improve them, yes they arent essential, but why not have them.
The receivers are what they are. Foxs again is simpler, switches to do simple things. The delk seems unnecessarily complicated to do something that dedicated switches could do, but again, once set up, volume is all you need on the receiver.
The delks are currently sat on my banksticks, once the fish stop getting freaky, ill take them out for a session and see how i get on and come back with my thoughts.
As it stands at the moment though. I will likely keep the delks. Are they better? No i dont think so. I have just always been a delkim fan, and think i prefer the look out of the 2 alarms

Just cleared all my history and data and that hasn’t made the codes work on anything so guessing they have dropped them codes now. Shame as I almost exclusively use TFT as them codes always seemed to work

I think it’s because they have removed the codes due to it being included on Delkim items and they are breaching the rules set out by Delkim to all retailers.
