SlimLite Review by Total Carp – Rated ‘Awesome’
The UK’s biggest carp magazine Total Carp, spoke very highly of our SlimLite Indicators.
After our intensive design and field testing program to create the most advanced visual indication system, which we know you all love, we’re proud to see it gain some national recognition.
We always welcome independent reviews because it’s always great to hear about how much our products are helping enhance fishing experiences nationally and internationally. It helps us focus on our strengths and analyse our weaknesses so that we can continue to make the best products tailored to the everyday anglers needs.
Let us not say any more, we’ll let Total Carp tell you how they feel about our SlimLite Indicator. Read the full review below;
As much as I will admit to being a bit of a tackle tart, I always place a product’s functionality over what it looks like, as I explained to somebody on Instagram recently when they said these didn’t look very carpy.
The mind boggles.
What they are is a completely new style of indication that offers absolutely everything you need from your setup, all in one neat package.
The best way to understand them is to see the video Lee Romang and I from Delkim shot (it’s on the Delkim website) because these few words cannot really fully do them justice.
However, what I do have room to say is that they offer the ability to fish with tight or slack lines, easily switching between the two without fuss. However, crucially, you can fish slack lines in even the windiest conditions because they’re held steady within the carbon arms.
The beauty is that once the line is secure in the magnetic clip for slack lining, it stays there. There is none of this line falling off the clip as soon as you get a bite or, worse, a line bite. The magnets gently grip any diameter line, including braid, but do no damage whatsoever.
You can use them conventionally as well, with any kind of tension on the line and, another bonus, the head runs freely up and down the arms without there being any arc of movement. It’s as safe, secure and sensitive a bite-indication setup as I have come across and, unlike the previous DuoCarb and Es systems, it’s much more compact. Oh, finally there’s an internal LED, which light up and is available in all of the Delkim colours.
I genuinely can’t wait to use these on a more long-term basis because I think they’re absolutely spot-on and cannot speak highly enough of them at this early stage. (MC)
