1 review for Fox Micron RX+ Bite Alarm

  1. Striker

    I have had nearly every bite alarm available and even had the new Delkim TXI-D but quickly went back to these! They do everything I need from an alarm and a lot more….so easy to use and great quality.

External control of the Vari-Bright adjustable LED brightness to suit the conditions you are fishing in (choice of 3 LED brightness settings in day mode and 3 different brightness settings in night mode) simply adjust via button on battery cover

Larger clearance around the roller wheel and improved drainage vastly reduces chances of roller wheel freezing up in extreme cold conditions

Stronger range performance with RX+ Receiver

Improved sensitivity range (see below)

Sensitivity Control

In all sensitivity settings (except maximum), the line must travel the specified distance in the same direction and within 2 seconds in order to trigger the unit. Any movement in the opposite direction will reset the distance counter to zero. This can substantially reduce, or eliminate false triggering caused by wind and water movement.

Bivvy Light function

When the bivvy light feature is turned on via the switch on the back of the receiver it will behave in the following ways:

The indication lights on the receiver will be dimmed slightly to prevent the receiver emitting too much light whilst the bivvy light is active

The bivvy light will only come on if three bite triggers are received in quick succession to prevent liners and false indication turning on your bivvy light on unnecessarily

The bivvy light will fade into full brightness and remain on whilst the alarm continues to send trigger signals to the receiver. The light will fade out to nothing in the 5 seconds after the trigger lights have gone out on the receiver as long as no more indications are received
