Has anyone tried one of these kits on sale at £208 so tempted. I have never tried to build a rod before is this a good place to start. A bit nervous about cocking it up.
I have been trying to find Tax information. what a pain. Keeping it dust-free could be interesting.If this is being shipped from outside the EU bear in mind there's a good chance you'll get hit for import duty/ VAT/ handling fee which will add about £60 to the landed price.
There are loads of YouTube vids that will get you going and the hardest part will be mixing, applying and keeping the resin dust-free as it cures.
Do you know how much the tax added to your purchase? Is £60 about right?My good friend is actually in the process of building 2 of the exact rods ( one for me, the other for himself)....and he has a couple of other Epic Rods and Blue Halo's being a "Glass Geek".
We have both held the "naked" blank and given it a waggle, and I know you can't really tell much without eyes, handle or a line on it, but it seems very nice....fittings are very good .....we think the kit is good value, and good quality.
This is what I use for calculating import fees and it's pretty spot on, you'll need to add an £8 handling fee too to the final amountI have been trying to find Tax information. what a pain. Keeping it dust-free could be interesting.
I thought I had found a great bargain. The Tax is killer, I don't think I'll be able to fly that one by the Wife.This is what I use for calculating import fees and it's pretty spot on, you'll need to add an £8 handling fee too to the final amount
looking like just over £300. Delivery £46 tax and Duty £60 +I saw the 370 kit that other day and was tempted. There is a code that will give you a further 10% off which just about covers the postage. Like you, the import duty put me off. Still, if you get he full kit and it costs you £270 then it's still a bit of a bargain. I do wish they were available directly in the UK. I can thoroughly recommend the CTS quartz blanks, CTS made the first gen Epics before they moved production.
Not an Epic but highly renowned, Taniwha Rodworks have both their olive and grey S-fibreglass rods on sale for next few days, at a price that doesn’t cover the cost of the components. Part customised insofar as you choose reel seat and agate stripper. Stocks running low.looking like just over £300. Delivery £46 tax and Duty £60 +
