    Mine too...I sold the expensive ones over the last year, after testing the oracle scandi I couldn't ignore the obvious, tbh I hated the fact it was better than my sage euro 650\700, i also tried the oracle switch rod which replaced my loop blue line rod, that was the end of expensive rods for me, i had realised that I've no need to spend lots of money.

    Another upside is you don't have to treat it with kid gloves, boat fishing for example takes its toll on your gear, scrapes scuffs are hard to avoid.

    Must admit, I don't like the feeling when I scrape an expensive rod or put an expensive reel on the ground. My oldest reel looks like somebody has dragged it from Scotland to Australia and gets dropped on the ground without a thought

    Im at touch ocd with looking after my gear, even more so when it costs hundreds of pounds.

    It's never even occurred to me to protect my gear from scratches - breakages yes, cosmetic damage no. Rods are tools not gucci handbags. Mine get thrown all over the place.
