I sold my set after trying to get on with them for months.....

I could not get the line adjustment correct, too tight and damaged line or too slack and they dropped off. If you changed line / spools the adjustment had to be made.

Also couldnt get on with them slack lining either

Disadvantage is they can damage the line if not set up correctly with the tension on ball bearing and the next line grab

They are good if you fish tight lines.
Only problem I found is if you get a drop back indication you have to reset them.. not the end of the world to be honest.
I may try them again one day but my bite alarm tells me if I've had x drop back fox rx+ so that's good enough for me

Thanks for that info....

Coincidentally I have just read on a facebook page devoted to bite alarms that three or so members have had the aftermarket roller wheels on their Nevilles burst where the magnets are inserted due to freezing in the recent cold spell.

Fortunately for me.....I have other things that occupy me during winter time rather than angling.

I do know that thick glycerine would also prevent freezing though if I did venture out in freezing conditions.

I have Flippers also but as yet untried.

I used them for a couple of seasons when they 1st came out, they were fantastic until—
One night it rained then froze, as did the indicators to their posts/pole, so I gave up on them and changed to MCF flippers with Bike Chsins..
Spot on👍👍👍

Thanks..I have already seen the vids.
I started using them last season as an alternative to my preferred monkey climber set ups.
I particularly liked the way they indicated line bites.

As always other opinions contribute more knowledge.

The best i've used. Once you get used to using them in all fishing situations, they will tell you so much in regards to what is occuring on the lead end. Have a look on youtube, i'm sure there are demo vids dotted around.

I would imagine a few members have experience of these.
What were the advantages and disadvantages that you found , please.?
