Nash Siren S5R
The award-winning Nash Siren S5 Bite Alarm has been given wireless capability with the S5R remote series. Representing great value for money, but still made to the same quality standards common to all Nash bite alarms, the Siren S5R uses radio communication technology and high-quality components for accurate and reliable performance. This angling bite alarm will register the smallest bite indications, even in rough weather, and its rugged form means it will stand up well to travel and frequent use in the great outdoors.
Carp anglers appreciate that long, dark nights in all weathers may be the price to be paid for success. When combined with the Siren S5R Remote Receiver unit (sold separately), the S5R Alarm will give you audible and visible signals via the remote unit as well as on the alarm head itself, meaning you can be aware of and react to opportunities while tucked away in a bivvy, safe from the wind and rain. A set of up to four alarms can be assigned to different LED indicator colours (red, blue, purple, or white) and monitored with one receiver. The wireless connection range is quoted as reaching up to 400m, depending on the environment and atmospheric conditions, and the signal has been found to penetrate 100m through dense bushes and trees in this Nash bite alarm review on the AD blog.
As you would expect from Nash, the alarm volume, tone, and sensitivity settings can be chosen by the user and will give an indication of the rate of play on the line by means of periodic or continuous tones. The alarm volume can be adjusted independently on the alarm head and the receiver. The Siren S5R unit has compact dimensions of 80mm (L) x 38mm (W) x 37mm (D) and the battery cover is weather-sealed. Its supplied soft PVC case provides protection when in transit or when out of use on the bankside. It features a standard 3/8” BSF thread, ready to use with a wide range of rod supports.
For convenience, this Nash bite alarm is fitted with push-button on/off and an integrated line guard. Nash is confident of the performance promised by this lower-priced yet reliable product and offers a three-year guarantee to back it up.
