  • What barrow?

    Hi as a Senior angler(age that is) at the end of a session I am totally knackered with humpin all my tackle so a barrow has gotta be a serious consideration,but which one? I have been looking at the Preston Shuttle but would appreciate any comments on it or other barrows of similar price.

    Hi mate,I know the feeling! Too much tackle,too many smokes and too many pies in my case! I've got the preston shuttle,and it is very good over flat ground,although some people say they're not the best over rough ground. I find it nice and easy in general,with the added bonus of being able to stash your rod holdall on the top. (I'm still knackered when I get back to the car after a long walk,though!)

      Ive now completed my awayday kit, 1 bag 1 holdall and a chair,and still ended up with back ache after the last session,so have had to invest in a basic trolley off flea bay,the one ive got is a straight forward stack truck rtyle bout does the job well,a similar model is available on the bay under the brand name Koala for under £20.00.

        i use this one ! iTS GREAT OVER FLAT OR RUFF GROUND NO WORRIES . iT also makes things seem lighter due to the design and ofcource its balance........Fox trakta.............. folds away flat as a pancake as well ..............

          Preston space shuttle spreads the load fantastically well, you will feel like your pushing a third of the weight

            depends how much money you can justify for a trolley alot of my mates use a electric powerwalker costs a fair bit but all you have to do is guide it and it goes itself making 80 peg walk a breeze

              Thanks lads for all the replies and advice. Talked to a lad in the pub (he's got an Ultimate low loader) and says it is a Preston shuttle clone but better and cheaper. I know cheapest is not always best and would love a Fox Trakta but too many pennies . Its gonna be a toss up between the Preston and Climax,not heard many bad comments about either although I think the Preston had some wheel issues in the early days.

                Maybe you should ditch fishing and take up archery?
