At the recent Big One tackle show, one item that caught my attention was Prestige Engineering’s new Carp Porter barrow – the Mk5. Wow! What a piece of kit. And British too. I have absolutely no requirement for a carp barrow but now I want one!
Prestige have been making tackle transportation devices for 20 years and they say the Mk-5 Carp Porter is the best fishing barrow they’ve ever made. Each features a lightweight, hi-tensile steel frame made here in the UK by hand and such is the amount of love that goes into making them, each one is individually numbered. All Carp Porter Mk5 barrows come with a lifetime guarantee for the frames – impressive.
The Mk5 features adjustable handle height to let you set up for the weight of your equipment and reduce any wobble caused by large loads. This is a brand new design and is completely rigid. A nice addition is the newly designed flanged, spike feet which look the business – you can see how well they’ll work. And while you’re making adjustments you can feel safe that you won’t lose the handwheels which now incorporate an anti-loss design.
The list of options to tailor make your barrow to your own requirements is impressive. The new Monster Wheel is reportedly the largest available and should ride ruts, stumps and tree roots with ease. If that’s not suitable, how about a puncture proof wheel complete with Kevlar band? Being British made the wheels feature top quality bearings giving both a smooth ride and long life. Another option the guys at Prestige are keen on is the new Front Tray that will take two standard size bait buckets and locates them just where you want the heavy weight, over the wheel.
The Prestige Carp Porter Mk5 is super impressive and British made. Sure to be one of the must-have items on the bank this season. Tell her indoors it’ll save your back!
