Prologic established in 2004, in the UK and has since become specialists in providing carp tackle. Prologic focuses on providing tackle that is dedicated to carp anglers. For Prologic, the carp fishing scene has expanded so far beyond the seeds sown in the UK that it is now a big, pan European company that is renowned worldwide. Prologic continues to build a firm following by offering products that form practical solutions to the vast majority of carp angling situations from bite alarms to bait tools.
This SMX alarm contains three alarms and one receiver so you can have three rods on the go, increasing your chances of a bite and this is also great if you want to test a range of areas of the lake or a different bait under similar conditions. The alarms are extremely compact, easy to store away between visits to the bank as well as not taking up much space in your rucksack when commuting from car to the riverside. The company shape makes these alarms rather elegant compared to some of the bulkier designs out there. The indicators rely on two AAA 1.5V batteries for power and these are not included with the alarms.
Following on from the success of the SMX bite alarm, this is the SMX black edition that offers a facelift for modern anglers, whilst giving a retro, funky look to the classic style bite alarm. These SMX Alarms works on a very simple magnet roller wheel system, picking up of any forward pulls or drop backs off the line. There is a white PYFE roller wheel on the bite alarm to help with indication. This roller wheel with light up purple when there is a bite and white when there is a drop back. This wheel roller is of diamond shape, offering and tasteful style to the alarms as well as more grip of the line for those aggressive bites.
There are three easy-to-use buttons just below the roller on the face of the alarms, that displays the volume, tone and sensitivity control. To match the alarm there is a matt black speaker with an anodized finish that acts as the receiver remote, which boasts a power switch and a sync button for control when not in close range of the alarms. The top of the receiver displays eight powerful LED’s that indicate purple of a take, white for a drop back and a third, bigger light that will act as a bivvy light.
The SMX series includes all the important features needed from the modern carp anglers and more. You are able to completely customise the alarms to what you prefer, enabling you to adjust the tone of the alarm, the volume and the sensitivity. There is also a dedicated drop back LED indication and tone that you can tailor to your preference as well as a vibration mode. There is also a memory function so that once you have tailored the alarm to exactly the fitting tone, volume and sensitivity, once turned off and one again all these customised settings shall remain, saving you time and effort on your second use.
The alarms are completely, 100% waterproof, meaning whether there is a drizzle of rain or you accidentally dunk them in the shallow bankside, the alarms will still perform to the highest standard to keep up with the demands of carp fishing.
So if you need to update your alarms for a reliable, sleek and sensitive bite indicator that will never lose you a catch, look into Prologic’s SMX custom black WTS’s, blue edition.
