I’ve been trying to buy a rod for a couple of weeks, first time I had an email to say sorry out of stock and PayPal refund. Second choice refunded twice without explanation, each time a few days after the order was confirmed with thanks. Could it be because I’ve used a discount code before?

Arrived today my matchcatch ultra light 6 ft 1 wt.
First impressions are good, nice colour, good eyes, nice packaging but that doesnt really matter to be honest, how does it cast ?.
You cant make a silk purse from a sows ear as Jasper Eli used to say, god bless his soul.
Going to put on my Ryobi 255 this arvo with a Barrio 2 wt, wt forward and dry cast on the lawn before I pass judgement.
Tell you later.

The two lines for the price of one offer ends today, get in.

It works but it took a little research as the offer isn't reflected in the Shopping Cart price if you choose 2 lines, obviously that's too sodding easy.

Instead you choose 1 line and leave a message describing the other line you want.

On top of that code 1advance gets 15% off the order total . I ordered a zillion hooks and two clear intermediates for less than £25. The shrimp hooks are good by the way, worth buying. A good resonant tone if pinged in the vice, they stay closed under strong pressure.

Seems to cast well despite the limits of the operator !
Managed to get about twenty foot out without struggling, more than I will need on the river, not bad for a toothpick !!!
I'm looking forward to waving it in anger in Wales now and to see how a minnow feels like a monster on a 1 wt.
I'll let you know how I get on.

I ordered one yesterday and only remembered about bog off afterwards, I emailed them back on the order confirmation email and they said they’ll send me two. :thumbs:

Just put another order in with them using the 15% discount code, hopefully they don't refund me again as I had a few refunds using code as1004.

Saw your post just after I had ordered two lines so emailed them to ask about the free line offer and they responded and told me they would send two free lines, thanks Mrtrout :thumbs:

Received one last week for the grand total of £2.80 ... delivered :fish2:
That's brilliant mate, I tried that but got refund as I had used the code to many times . How is the reel? I bought the 3/4.

They are nice ,solid ,basic reels as far as I can tell which would probably cost you £30 here.A reel is a line holder only for me as I’m never going to test them with my kind of fishing,so for me they are ideal even if they only make it through a season or two at this current price who cares.
Not fished one yet,but next time out this one will get a dunking ... Loaded with a Barrio .
