Line Movement Sensor

unique to Byte TxA the line travels through, not over, the sensor providing constant frictional contact even with slack fishing lines

the only stylus that can alert the angler to the importance of forwards or backwards line movement

constructed from smoothed stainless steel the stylus does not wear in the same way as plastic composites

on aggressive takes the stainless steel guards alleviate the risk of  fishing line cutting through the plastic body

at the bottom of the compartment retaining the stylus is a water vent 

Line Tension Sensor

equivalent to quiver tipping, this sensor sees bites all others are simply blind to

the threaded bolt acts as the fulcrum for a super-rigid stainless steel plate accurate from grams to kilos

fish hard up against snags or create new techniques to catch more fish

an internal sensor unaffected by frozen line on either a line movement sensor or the eyes of the rod

wind, waves, rain, snow, river currents, and undertows have different signal signatures from bites on this unique sensor 

Visual and Audio Output

ByteTxW indications are alarmed through individual ByteTxA heads

option to visually number individual heads in a set i.e. left head 1 LED, middle head 2 LEDs, right head 3 LEDs … available through CH turn dial 

available through the CH turn dial

red LEDs are proven to cause the least night vision disturbance, other colours are available

a drop-back triggers a distinct LED flashing pattern whilst the audio repeats a cascading tone


line movement sensitivity is adjustable through the SM dial whereas line tension sensivitiy is adjustable via ST dial

left position both sensors – ON

middle position – Power OFF

right position line movement ON – Line Tension OFF

unlike other battery formats AA batteries are ubiquitous and cost the same as AAA but provide more than twice the power 

different battery chemistries become sluggish at lower temperatures.  ByteTxA is equipped with a super capacitor coupled to a digital thermometer so you dont have to purchase expensive lithium batteries to fish reliably in the cold
