I may really surprised people bare talking about false bleeps, I think you havenít set the up properly, I woke up to a few odd single bleeps on two rods around 6 reeled in around 8 and realised Iíd been done. Iím very impressed by them to be fair then again Iíve used Delkims for 25 years. The new digitals are streets ahead of their predecessors.

I sold my TXI D alarms and bought fox RX plus about 4 months ago, best think i ever did. Much prefer the fox, if they bleep something is happening. Delks drive you mad with false bleeps, i should know I've had delks since 1990. After 30 years on delks Iím a def fox convert. The new delks are over complicated. Totally unnecessary features.

Just personal preference. Delkims have a wider range of sensitivity, and sound quite annoying

I honestly have no idea how he has them setup mate but all I no he is one of the best anglers ive ever met and I was really surprised how often they was beeping, he must have them on very high sensitivity. Like I said Iím not slating them I was just really surprised how sensitive they are.

I had the RX Digital blue set and receiver up until about 12 or 13 years ago until I had all my gear stolen from my garage. After doing a bit of float fishing with my 16 year old this year, I've decided to start up the carp fishing again and can't decide whether to get the new RX+ digitals (never had any problems with any fox alarms I've ever bought, mmx, mx and I'm currently using the new mx's with my son for tench and bream) or plum for the new delkim txi digitals.

I honestly cant believe that's true about the rx+ going off all the time, I've owned them and thats one of their best features...and you can set the sensitivity to 9cm, nothing is making that go off but maybe a hurricane force wind. .. and its roller based so can only be going off if line is going through roller. has he got them set to 2.8mm sensitivity and just doesn't understand how it works? or he got really unlucky and had 3 faulty alarms...unlikely. I've used them in very very windy conditions and they never beep if you set them right.

I am more delkim than fox (not saying I wouldnít use them) Iíve had most alarms on the market and the txi ds are by far my favourite, people say they are difficult to set up by they really ainít. If you can turn on a phone and send a text you can set these up, like mentioned aswell they stay set to what you left them at so you donít need to reset them all the time.

My mate has the fox rx+ alarms and people moan about delkim a being to sensitive all he gets is bleeps every 5 seconds on his I couldnít believe it Iím guessing he has them set wrong because my delkim where set half way on the response dial and getting nothing his fox ones where constantly going off but bobbin wasnít moving at all

A friend has just sold his fox nxtr alarms to get them and loves them he said he wonít be going back, Iím not slating any other type of alarm Iím just saying these are for me the best Iíve used, I will change again in the future I get bored of my gear very easily and like to change but something special will have to come out for me to do that

I have a set of Txi D's and NTXR's, and I must say the NTXR's for me are better, not as sensitive granted but simpler and no less effective. I've always had delks so I will be keeping mine but I can understand you selling them.

I went to txi-d's after using ntxr's for years and have already sold them..... I accept people love them but they were just not for me. I got some att's not really expecting to keep them long but tbh their so good I'll probably just bank the cash I got for the delks. 🤷‍♂️

Even without a deal I think the alarms are great at full rrp.

believe it or not, the new delks having preset tones is a good idea, I set mine the same note but octaves apart, meaning I satisfy my OCD, but I also know which alarm is going by the tone. With many things on the delks, once set up, you almost never have to mess with that setting again.

Rx+ for me. Maybe not as well built as a delk and customer service for fox is well...non existent. But just feel new delks are over engineered, fox seem to have nailed the functionality/user ease of use. Its user preference, still love the delk warble just think they've gone overkill. An example is it having 60 tones. Baffling. Rx plus are spot on for functionality.

I was also looking at getting the new delkims. The anti theft alarm function appeals to me. I used to have the Fox RX Digital set up until around 12 years ago when I had all of my gear nicked. I thought more people on here would be pro delkim rather than Fox. Are the new Fox alarms really better than the new delkims in people's opinion.
