Right guys, I’ve a choice here between two rods, but unsure which one to buy:

Blackstar or Extreme, either 9ft 6#......there’s only £20 difference

either would be used for small stillwaters as a backup for the orvis Clearwater 9’6” 6# (ok ok, don’t bash me for paying £££ for it, Mrs got it as a gift).

I’m already an avid Maxcatch follower and use their lines, reels & nymph rods.

I've a Blackstar and use it for stillwaters. Decent finish too.

ordered a line and couple of other small things on the 05/12/20. According to Royal Mail tracking, it left China 22/12. no updates since then. Is it time to start emailing or should I give it a bit longer?

thanks
Paul

i'm still waiting for an order same day 5th dec, says left china 23rd, also waiting for another order from 12th dec... both say now with Royal Mail ?
last order i had was early Nov, ended up in Royal Mails hands and still not got it....
I'm done with Maxcatch/China now, shame, as half the problem is when it reaches the UK..

Seems, from the sound of it, as if all of the problem is when it reaches the UK, no?

So the problem is Royal mail.

I've had items arrive at Heathrow International mail iirc, Heathrow something? 9/10 days after ordering, it's then taken 7/9 days from Heathrow to my door.

thanks Noel, i will check again, did'nt realise there was an 'English' tab, mines all in chinese, but does say Leaving oversees---arrived Royal mail...

The 2 orders i'm waiting for were direct from maxcatch
The previous that Royal Mail lost was from Ebay, which gave a proper tracking number, not that it made any use other than actually seeing who lost it!

Not Maxcatch, but I ordered a heated vest from a company and that's been on an aeroplane from Shenzhen for 2 days and now is (resting for a few days) at the "airport of destination".
