New Avid Carp Bivvy/Shelters for 2012

Posted by Editor On October - 29 - 2011

Avid Carp 2012We commented that Avid Carp were definitely a tackle manufacturer to watch after last year's Tackle & Guns Trade Show. Here we are 12 months later and they've sure proved us right. Avid Carp is arguably one of the most innovative producers of carp fishing tackle and after visiting this year's trade show we're pleased to say that this looks to continue well into 2012.

Last year we announced the launch of the HQ bivvy, and after the successful launch of the HQ Euro, we now have the choice of the new Avid Carp HQ 2-man bivvy. Featuring the same top-drawer materials and components as its predecessors and a wealth of innovations, this new configuration of the HQ bivvy is likely to be popular with anglers looking for more room and longer sessions.

In addition to the two-man HQ bivvy, Avid Carp have announced the launch of two shelters - the Alpine and the Ascent. The Avid Carp Alpine Shelter is a 60-inch brolly system featuring an array of innovations, as you might expect. Perhaps the biggest stand-out feature are the built in stability rods. Once swung out, these rods create a shelter that is completely free standing without the need for additional storm poles. There's a heavy duty groundsheet included as well as pegs and while you may feel you may as well go the whole hog and purchase a bivvy, this set up is much lighter. In fact, a big part of the design of these new brollies/shelters was the sourcing of the highly durable but lightweight material used. The Dura Stop ripstop material is an industry first on a brolly.

The Avid Carp Ascent is based on the same 60-inch oval brolly but comes with full, zip-in front panels and doors. Some of the features include mosquito panels on the openings and a rear vent for increased airflow. The same Dura Stop fabric is used to keep weight to an absolute minimum.

Recommended Retail Price on the Alpine is £169.99, whilst the Ascent is recommended to sell at £269.99. Expect to pay less if you shop around.
