I know people regularly praise BobCo on here, but I have to say that I’ve just bought a 13m Daiwa Whisker pole package from them for an amazing price. Next time I’m up North I’m def going to make the effort to call in.

I have started calling in when I am passing on my travels and I can only repeat what other people are saying. Very helpful staff and a really good range of kit on display. It is certainly worth having a rummage around as you can find some good bargains too. Last time I was in I found a Sensas match rod for £50, it felt really nice as soon as I picked it up nice fast action with a soft tip, light and well balanced into the bargain so took a punt. When I got home I did a little googling and found the same rod on sale in several shops in France for around 250 euros

Hi
Definitely agree with all the above comments – been going in for years – got to say Bob has always given me a good deal on big price items as I’m cheeky and ask what the best price is and they always price match so you can feel / handle the gear and get a good price, what's not to like.

Personally I hate Bobco


Every time I go in I end up spending way more than I intended.
So many pretty, shiny things that look good in my seat box or attached to it😃😃😃

Seriously probably the best tackle shop in Yorkshire. Nearly always have a bit of banter with mr Kendal (Hatman).

Fantastic on-line service too, I've bought everything from a few packets of hooks to seatboxes, clothing and everything in between. Delivery charges are ridiculously low at £1.99 no matter what you buy and providing the items were in stock I'never waited more than a couple of days for reciept.

I cant praise them enough. Even buying through the internet you get first class service. Ive had them email me saying that they are out of stock but .... 1, Would I like to wait ? 2, Would I like an alternative ? 3, Would I like my money back ? I cant fault the guys. They are ace. 👍

My number one go to for my bulk internet orders, but living in Kent means I have to use my local Angling Direct for bits and bobs

On the subject of BOBCO... I purchased a pole from them and signed up to their new loyalty card scheme. I was given a temporary card and told a new one would arrive in the post which it hasn't. Anyone else signed up for this ? At the time the bonus for me was my pole purchase was added to the loyalty card.

Bought my MAP 501 from them online, first outing found it had what appeared to be a stretch mark in the carbon that had caused a very slight split to form.
Anyway, they took the section back, got on to MAP who sent a new section. Was pole less for a fortnite but they done well by me and sorted it.....fair play.
