Dont know where you got that idea. The "world" is not on lockdown and cargo planes have been flying throughout. I do expect a delay due to increased volume of cargo traffic but they cant even tell me if its left China yet.I think you are forgetting something, the world is on shutdown virtually no planes flying anywhere .
Could you post a link to the rod please?I live in SW France and I ordered a 4 piece 6'6" Ultralight #2 back on May 4th for the princely sum of €28.00 including postage. Their tracking system showed it arrived in France within 3 weeks. It arrived at my home this morning! Have just spent 20 mins with it on the lawn (as you do). Put a 3# line on it and have to report that it really is a lovely little thing. It puts out a really accurate line. Finish is great, possibly the best corks I've seen on a rod for years. Even has section alignment marks. Another winner from Maxcatch as far as I'm concerned.
