Nash Siren S5 Bite Alarm Blue
The Nash alarm range champions a compact design and the S5 is no different. Cosmetically, the alarm is nice, small and delicate looking with jet-black frame housing all the components, finished with the S5 and Siren branding in white. The S5 is easy to set up thanks to the practical direct screw thread attachment for Nash Bobbins used on the flagship R3 series alarms. Feature-wise, there is a roller wheel system that lets you know what is going on at the other end on your line. Instantly informing you of a take. The design of the roller feature of the alarm means there is an integrated line guard, minimising false indications, the alarm is generally very good at ignoring false indications from adverse weather conditions and currents, the dual wheel design is responsible for this. The S5 features an easy push button as an on and off switch which not only controls power but the volume. Whether you are based near to the alarm or your bivvy is a little further from the peg, the volume can be adjusted so you do not miss a thing. The volume control knob is big for ease of access so you can go extremely loud or nice and quiet depending on your preference. The speaker system is powered by Pieto and has an extremely high-volume output, ensuring you hear your alarm even in howling wind. There is just volume control, making these alarms super easy to use rather than complicating the design with tone controls and other features, Nash is providing the essentials for carp fishing. There is no sensitivity control either but the S5 provides a renowned Siren sensing capability with advanced communication technology with a bleep approximately every 5mm of the line being pulled. A perfect all-round alarm that is a reliable, responsive indicator.
