  1. Hi Rudd, this is the one I have that leaks: http://www.jrcproducts.com/viewProducts.as...e=&PageNo=7 I will check the Plus out.
  2. Hi Lee, I actually went for the JRC Stealth Brolly with Zipped front. Only problem is it leaked.!!!! Going to take it back to the shop, did like it but just don't fancy getting wet. Don't know if I should get the same again or change it for something different. Anyone got any comments?
  3. No Problem Ant, Like I said though, what's your budget. Do you already have another vehicle you use on a daily basis, if so why not sell that and put the money towards a decent 4x4 that can do both the fishing trips, holidays and daily running around. Do you actually need a proper 4x4 or will a 4x4 Estate car do, something like a Subaru Legacy, or even (dare I say it) Skoda Octavia . I even once had one of those funny Renault Scenic RX4's. All my mate's took the p*ss so it had to go but at the time did everything I wanted, you can move the rear seats back and forward for
  4. Ant, What sort of money are you looking to spend?? So many different vehicles out there it really depends on your needs. Are you just going to use it as a pure fishing vehicle, do you want to do a bit of greenlaning, will it be doing the Tesco run each week, will it be used for towing, etc. etc. etc. If your not going to do many miles in it then the amount it does to the gallon shouldn't worry you too much, as this will be offset by the premium you will pay for a diesel over a petrol. I wouldn't go for a petrol 1.8 Freelander, the Rover engine as everyone else has said has
  5. Hi Guy's, Sorry been away for a few days, thanks for all the replies. I actually bought the JRC Stealth Zipped brolley:- http://www.jrcproducts.com/viewProducts.as...e=&PageNo=7 Was very happy, was quick to put up, nice and tall but it did leak slightly from the stitching around one of the base supports so it's going back. May get another though cos it's a really nice bit of kit, maybe I just got a Friday afternoon one.
  6. Hi All, Just thought I'd give you an update. Managed to use the Hyperloop "in anger" this weekend, had a couple of Carp rods out, but noticed a few coming up for the odd dog buscuit I was throwing in. Set the Hyperloop up 6lb line, a controller float and stuck a No.8 with a dog buscuit on and cast it out. 8 Carp later time to go home. Smallest 7lb, biggest just under 12lb, really surprised how well the rod stood up to the challenge. When I first used it on much smaller fish the other week I really thought it would struggle on anything bigger, I shouldn't have worried, it p
  7. Hi Guy's, Thanks for the advise, will check them out, ideally want something that I could do a night session in if I felt that way inclined.
  8. Hi, Anyone got this : http://www.nashtackle.com/Bivvies-and-Umbr...LE_SPECIAL.html Anyone had any problems with it, or recommend something similar price but better. Also do you know how high it is, mainly going to use one for day sessions and need to be able to sit in it on a chair.

  10. Hi Lee, I've been doing a bit of phoning around this morning seeing what shops recommend. Think I'm going to go for the Nash 60" Oval Profile Special. http://www.nashtackle.com/Bivvies-and-Umbr...LE_SPECIAL.html Managed to get it including Ground Sheet, Storm Poles zip on sides, pegs etc for £100. Anyone got anything bad to say about it.??? Apparently it fold up quite nicely to go into a holdall aswell??
  11. Hi All, Anyone know what the best quick errect bivvy is for up to £100. May consider a brolly system with sides, mainly for day sessions but might do the odd overnighter. Want something Tallish at least 1.4m high to be able to sit in in my chair. Had a quick look at the JRC Roamer and Daiwa Mission overnighter, not actually seen them in the flesh. Any help would be appreciated.
  12. OK Guy's thanks. Actually bought the Shelter last night. After about 30 seconds of unbaxing it knew it would be going back today. Looks like I'm going to have to come to the real world and spend some money.!!
  13. Hi, Has anyone here got or seen the Argos Carp Shelter £29.99 (link below) http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/part...Giant.Giant.htm Looking for something a bit better than a brolley for day sessions. Any comments on it or another alternative.
  14. Thanks Guy's, Bought the Super Cocoon, great bit of kit loads of protection. Cheers
  15. Hi All, Just to let you know, tried the rod out yesterday. For the money I was quite impressed, although I only had carp up to 3.5Lb it seemed to handle them ok, if anything it could do with being a bit more powerful for bigger fish but for £22.49 can't grumble. I suppose I will only know what it's like when I actually hook something a bit larger but definately a good rod for the money.
