Can You Guess When These Alarms Were Brought Out?
Fancy yourself as a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to tackle knowledge? Well, take our test and find out just how good you really are…

Want to improve your bankside cred? Along with owning a set of vintage Daiwa’s then, you need to have knowledge of old school history, such as knowing when certain historical events took place, like the year the Heron was commercially produced and the month Fox’s latest and greatest bite alarm, the RX+ was released in your local tackle shop...

1) Whilst Dick Walker is acclaimed to producing the first bite alarm, it was in fact his friend Maurice Ingham - but in what year?

1947
1949
1952

2) The Heron: it was Walker’s basic antenna design which was commercially produced by Jack Opie, but in what year?

1955
1956
1957

3) Jumping forward a few decades and there was a large leap in technology with the Optonic. This worked on the principle of a wheel with a paddle attached to the shaft that would break an IR beam, triggering the alarm. Can you tell us what year was it launched?

1981
1983
1985

4) In what year did Fox launch the Micron SX - their first ever bite alarm?

1991
1992
1993

5) This was the year when Fox launched the Micron DXR. Along with boosting a vast range of sensitivity options due to the new dual technology vibration/roller wheel sensing used, it also had an in-built radio transmitter, meaning it was the first alarm to have a remote receiver.

1995
1996
1997

6) What was the year when Gardner Tackle launched their TLB alarm?

1993
1994
1995

7) Four years after Fox gave their DXR a slight facelift - introducing a new drop back differentiation and power out facility for driving the new and highly inventive Illuminated Euro Swingers, they released the Micron RX and RX Receiver, featuring never-before options such as a five-minute range test facility, but what was the year?

2000
2002
2004

8) Around this time there was a big advancement in technology when it came to bite alarms, such as Solar’s V10 system that used sim cards. When did the first version of that alarm hit the high street?

2002
2004
2006

9) During this year, Advanced Tackle Technology’s launched the ATTs system - a totally different concept in as much as the head is silent

2007
2008
2009

10) Steve Neville updated his old head to a MK2 version which allowed you to change the volume and worked with his own remote system, but can you name the year?

2005
2007
2009

11) Can you remember the now cult classic RX Digital alarms from Fox? Well, there’s now a new alarm worthy of the RX moniker and it’s pretty special too. It’s called the RX+ and it goes on-sale in which month of this year?

October
November
December
