I have generally had good service from GAC except when I bought a second hand (ok pre-loved) rod. The condition was described as used once but it had a badly scratched reel seat and rust on several guide feet and their response to my complaint was not helpful.
Perhaps it was used once by a careless saltwater angler? ;)

If you are interested the discount available is known as their reward card, it costs £5 and is available for your lifetime. It is 10 points for a pound spent and £2.50 discount for 1,000 points plus various other bits and pieces. However they have a list of angling clubs and if you put your purchase against the clubs' name instead of your own they receive substantially more.
