What do people use, starlites on the rod tip or bite alarm ?

If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great.

Bite alarms set low, easier on the eyes than starlites

I use the drennan isotopes with their clips. One right on the tip and the other set back 8inches or so.
Im normally fishing for Chub and Roach with the rod down. I would think you could get away with one isotope for Barbel.

Paint the top 150mm of the rod tip white and it makes it easier to see.
When it gets dark use an Isotope, something like these.. http://gardnertackle.co.uk/product/...-betalights/ and you can also buy a connector to fix them onto your rod tip

Small cable tie to hold in place some silicon wide enough to hold isotope, about inch long, then another cable tie just round the tip only and under the silicon to prop it up slightly.

I have 2 baitrunners and also the tips are white. Off to a good start I guess .

Only trouble with fishing into dusk is that dusk quickly becomes dark and with no natural light even white tips are hard to see, bite alarms that show red light led's are much easier on the eyes than isotopes or starlites or torch's on a rod tip, goes without saying that baitrunners are the order of the day (or night in this case)

I don't really get bite alarms, this kind of goes of subject.

I see them used with Bobbins and receivers etc but I have no idea about them, maybe a time for an idiots guide to bite alarms thread.
