Strike Alert with Flash Indicator
GREAT PRODUCT FOR CATFISHING
THE STRIKE ALERT IS A GREAT DESIGN. CAN SEE FOR ABOUT 100 YARDS. DOES NOT ACTIVATE TOO EASY. GREAT PRODUCT FOR TROLLING OR BANK FISHING.THE ONLY PROBLEM I SEE IS THE HOOKS FOR THE SALTWATER/CATFISH ONE ARE A LITTLE SMALL.

Got the size for freshwater rods, and they were really to small to get on and off the rod. Package references "steady" green light when ready, but all of the four I got had pulsing green light, could not get any of them to show steady green. This is very annoying while fishing. Pulsing light turns red when you have a hit.

Too Small Even for Tiny Rod Tips...Useless
I purchased a couple of the freshwater versions and was excited about using them. However, that was short-lived. Upon receiving them, I went to put them on my small spinning rod and the rod would not fit into either of the clamps/molded clips on the indicator. I also tried it on my smallest rod, which is tiny and the device was still too small. I tried my best to even force it on but it seemed like I was about to break my rod tip.
I put it in my hand and pressed it between my fore finger and thumb and the light did come on; therefore, I give it 1 star for that. However I must note that it did take quite a bit of force to achieve that.
I am not sure how large the saltwater one is but all I know is that I can't see this device working on hardly any rod tips...as a matter of fact, I could see folks easily breaking their tips trying to get this thing on.
Thus, I cannot recommend this item at all. It was totally useless for me as the clamps/clips to hold the light on the tip were sooooooooo small!!!

Makes life easy
Just snap it on and relax. I have used it in both day and night, works nicely. Red flashing light is a real attention getter. Makes all my fishing trips more relaxing. I can sit back and enjoy my beverage and know when to get up and grab the line.
