Going back to the batteries that hold their charge well,do you know if they are available with solder tags on so as to link them into multi-cell packs? Cheers for any info,Mick :D :D :D [/u] No, suggest you have a look around Amazon, ebay or RS Components web sites. Just had my Sanyo Eneloops AAA's...

I am no expert but I was under the impression that NiCad batteries were on their way out and that most manufacturers were now concentrating on Nickel Metal Hydride production as they are significantly better than the old NiCad stuff. The "other" metal in NiMH batteries is apparently a specially pre...

Hi there MikeO,did you make a decision on which reel to get? If you went for the Daiwa range I would be interested to hear how you rate them.I must admit that I got mine originally for heavier freshwater use but have found them to be just as much at home for my occasional beach trips. Tight lines,Mi...

That's pretty amazing Keith and a good tip. I did some research on this earlier in the year because I use rechargeables in my LED headlamps and my camera. I found a website that has tested quite a range of them and Energizers seemed to be top of the heap so I bought their 2450 mAh jobs which were t...

Merry Christmas to everyone here on the forum. And whilst we enjoy the Christmas spirit, take a moment or two to think of those unwell, not as lucky as yourself and our forces overseas who carry out their duty without question and risk their lives daily. All the best in 2012 to one and all. Totally...

Cant really comment on the beach side of things but in the days I night fished lakes and rivers, having a light on the bank seemed to make the fish reluctant to come close in.When betalight floats came along and you could see a bite while sitting in the dark(and keeping bankside disturbance to a min...

I don't think you are the only guy who has had this kind of experience with such long rods sparky. I don't own one myself (see above) but tried one a few years ago and found it so unwieldy that I just gave up the idea completely. I understand that rabbi2 bought something similar a while back and so...

Point is are we trying to catch fish or maintaining a rod & reel collection? A pair of 14ft Hellbenders, a bass rod, a boat rod and a "multi-purpose" uptider. A pair of Daiwa FS reels and a Shimano boat multiplier. Cannot see the point of having anything else can you? (Have to confess there are one...
