Thread: New barrow

  1. #1

    Default New barrow

    Need a new one as my trusty old porterlite is coming to the end of its life !!!
    Obvious choice would be another from prestige,just wandering what else is out there thatís worth a look ?

    Any thoughts on the fox explorer ones and what is the difference between the camo one and the green deluxe one ? Also the trakker ones ?

    Cheers

    The best on the market ;

    Prestige Power porter MK6 24V, it really has transformed fishing.

    Got the Fox Explorer last year and it is absolutely superb - very well laid out and all works together as a system - I can access everything on it without unloading and it also pushes and balances well.

    Avid transit X for me. Can’t recommend it enough.

    Not too sure, I bought mine before they had two models. I think the newer ones have adjustable handles.

    The green version is the deluxe model. It has an extending front bar to take more luggage, also comes with a rain cover and longer handles.

    Just like Hippy, I think they are superb..

    Avid transit is great, TFG does a rip off copy at £130.

    Bags come with it.

    The deluxe one also has a shelf in the under-barrow bag and strengthening in the base because apparently in the first model, the bag often sagged.

    Not been an issue with mine, but I do use the camolite storage bags, which are pretty rigid in themselves.
