So we have all heard about how useful yardsticks can be and it seems very widely accepted terminology to explain how far a certain spot is: “12 wraps to the pylon mate. ” Going one step further, Avid Carp is proud to offer the glow-in-the-dark variety, making it even easier to get your rods back out on the same mark whether it’s 1am or 1pm. Simply wrap around the subtle green tips and away you go. Supplied with a 12ft cord, you can always gauge a rod length with ease and the three separate and different coloured toggles allow you to clearly mark each rod’s distance for increased accuracy.

First things first, 15 quid for a bivvy light is exceptional value and this is definitely the cheapest on test, and by some margin. Does this mean a drop in features though? Well, in some areas,this is inevitable, but overall it still represents great value. Innovative in its fold-away design, when closed down it’s a very compact package and I was surprised it wasn’t a little lighter. It also has a torch mode when packed down, which is a nice addition.

The Tackle Box’s Lee Jackson says: It’s nice to see this product back on the market because it makes stripping line from spools child’s play. Designed to be used in conjunction with a cordless drill, simply tie the line to be stripped to it, squeeze the trigger on the drill and away you go. Another nice feature is that once the line is stripped, simply untwist the cap and the old. LEE JACKSON’s VERDICT “An inventive solution that makes that dreaded job of spooling up so much easier.

As the modern trend has seen numerous companies launch black bankware over the last year or two, there is still no shortage of decent stainless-steel stuff out there. The Precision gear from Chub boasts a comprehensive range of banksticks and buzz bars, as well as a few accessories. It’s very well made and feels as solid and sturdy as you’d expect from stainless. It’s also relatively inexpensive too – albeit proper stainless does carry a bigger price tag than, say, aluminium stuff.

There’s a plethora of tackle boxes available these days, many of which have followed Fox’s original concept. The Chub Smart Box has been around a while and in this ‘System’ version offers multiple internal compartments, boxes and hook-link spools. Each is designed with rounded bottom edges to make flipping them out of the main box a doddle. The plastic construction is robust, although we did find the clasps a little fragile.

I go through stages where I’ll either pre-tie rigs before a trip or I will prefer to do so on the bank. However, some rigs I always have tied up and at the ready, such as the 360. Most rig wallets, even the better ones, are simply too short, restricting me to rigs between six and 10 inches. I much prefer longer rigs, often up to 12 inches or so (size does matter after all) and the 18in XXL Rigger Pouch allows me to store these easily.
