Placed my first MC order for a 6wt wind cutter fly line, which arrived after 10 days and included a couple of freebies (line cleaner/straighener and nail knot tool/nippers.) Quite impressive
Great lines - mine is ace. Don't be perturbed if it feels light for short range stuff, once you have most of the head out the thing fairly zips out!

I received the final kiss off from Maxcatch recently. I ordered a Premier rod, I had ordered the same length / weight rod in the Blackstar & V Access ranges autumn last year, but after 6 to 8 weeks waiting for a tracking number on both occasions, I contacted them and got a refund immediately, probably out of stock.

This time I got a tracking number, but according to the tracking, the rod was sent back to Maxcatch from Bejing airport for security reasons? I contacted Maxcatch through the website 4 or 5 with no response, so I asked for a refund through Paypal. They replied saying they had mailed the rod from their warehouse, "Paypal has charged us a huge amount for this dispute and we will never cooperate with you again. Please do not order from Maxcatch."

Oh dear, it was good when it lasted, so it looks like its Hardy or Greys for now on. 😜

Put an order in this week, one item was a line in flu yellow ? Maxcatch emailed me to say it was out of stock, but they had several colours in my line size and I could pick another colour, wait for stock to arrive or have a full refund !
No problem with Maxcatch, always been helpful.
Chose Orange ! Order now on way.

I had the long wait earlier this year, the problem seemed to start with the line manufacturer in japan, this held up my order and with the shipping and corvid problems plus their computer problem it got waylaid,.
I contacted them via messenger a few months later and it was resent by airmail.

Happily all that was in the past and now they're back on the ball. (y)

The order that I put in for the big nasty fly line two days ago is now in our local sorting office :)

I like a weight up for my greys rods, its like they stick to the standard # while most line makers like to add a bit,
I've bought one of their nasty lines for my 8# rod for this reason.

stock20 still works

I used the Gold #7 for the first time last week. The line has a little memory and after several fish i noticed the memory disappeared from the last 10' or so. Would I be ok to give the full length a little stretch ?

I stretch my lines when required, I chuck my coat around a post etc and hold both ends of the line and pull, alternating the part of the line that's on the post
