Why buy Gardner ATT Bite Alarms?
It was on January 2013 when I was looking for a new set of alarms, 3 heads and receiver, and after looking on the internet and also talking to some people and also visiting some shops I took the plunge and went on and bought one set of Gardner ATTs. And so what did I think one year on?
The first time I looked at the ATTs Alarms my very first impression was how little they are when you compare them to most of the other alarms in the market, they are tiny which is a plus for me as the less I will have to carry when going fishing! Also they feel solid and the rubber finishing means they are not going to slip from your hand easily and are also kind to your rods finish, no marks or scratches from this alarm. Take a look at the image, the receiver is similar in size with the same rubber finishing and hence does not feel like it is going to slip out from your hand.
The power switch is usually recessed and take it from me; I have never had any problems with it turning itself off. You can also get a leather type case for the receiver if you would like one, but if you are after a bit more protection then maybe it would be a good idea to buy one.
Using the ATTs Bite Alarms is so so easy. Simply screw the alarms into your bankstick or buzzbar, pull cover off (when you pull the cover off you turn the alarm on and by putting the cover back on you turn it off), switch on the receiver and you are good to go. There are no settings to joke around with apart from the volume level on the receiver. You can set any of the Gardner Atts alarm heads to any of the five LEDs on the receiver you wish and that again people is yet a simple process.
On the receiver you can have the usual beeping noise or a choice of ten different tones and also a vibration mode. For the tackle tarts…you can buy different coloured rollers and isotopes to match the LEDs on each of the Atts Bite Alarms. The rollers come in two, four and even six magnet versions which relays to a sensitivity of 1cm, 0.5cm and 0.3cm of line movement before the alarm is triggered.
As for the batteries; the receiver works with a single AA battery. I changed mine last week after a year’s use; the batteries for the ATTs Bite Alarms are called 476A 6v batteries. They are a little harder to find but you should be able to get them from the dealer where you bought your alarms.
And so do you think am happy? Of cause yes I am and i feel no need to change my alarms because they do everything I want them to. Some people might like more features but as for me the simplicity is why I like them. They have never at any one time let me down and even thou one did fall into the lake whilst trying to screw it into a bank stick, screw alarms into bankstick while away from the water, it was still working just as good as the day I first bought them. Truly worth the money any day of the week.
