Fox introduces versatile Explorer Barrow

When Fox set about designing the Explorer Barrow the intention was to produce one of the most versatile carp barrows ever released onto the market. Now anglers will find out if the UK company has succeeded as the new barrow becomes available.
The Explorer is aimed at day session anglers who can leave most of their tackle on the barrow, so that packing up and moving to another swim presents little hassle and takes only a short time.
However, while it appears compact it can be easily adjusted to take bedchairs and extra tackle for longer sessions. An extendable bag rack at the front is quickly deployed to create more space for the extra gear.
The conversion cleverly redistributes the weight of extra tackle so that the barrow remains balanced.
The extendable front rack allows a Camolite Barrow Bag (available separately) to sit right at the front of the barrow when it is being used in ‘session mode’ and carrying a bedchair. When a bed is not needed, the rack is retracted and the bag turned around to face you.
A central Under Barrow Bag drops into the frame and, together with two mesh storage pockets that sit either side of the wheel, is styled in the Fox Camo pattern. The storage pockets are handily sized for five-litre water bottles and/or bait.
All three storage areas feature zips on their sides that allow convenient access without having to first unload items sitting on top.
Other practical plus points include removable handles, a robust, steel frame, quick-release wheel system and swiveling, spiked mud feet. It comes supplied with two barrow straps that fit to looped attachments on the frame. The barrow packs down well to fit into the smallest of car boots.
