Having reported a broken rod from the Tackle Show in Doncaster, I feel it only fair to tell you that I was phoned again this morning, with the address to return the rod too, for a free replacement!

Geoff wont be surprised to hear its in Cardiff!

Is any body surprised in this day and age to learn that Ron Thompson Rods(nice English sound) are supplied by Okuma (Jap?)
Who trade here as Svenden Sports UK (Swedish?) from Cardiff (?????)(couldnt find that 1)


Cheers

Les and Trev,

Am I right in thinking that you both bought the same type of rod and they have both broken ?

Seems a bit of a coincidence, Trev you didn't try them all out did you icon_smile_big.gif

Hi All,
I wish Shakespeare were as good as that, Wife bought a pole set -up endorsed by well known angler after 3 uses section 4 snapped like a rotten twig whilst playing a fish, sent them E-Mail but still no reply and that was last year asked local Tackle dealer to see if he could get a replacement section which he did eventually get after 4 months of waiting, amazing how different firms work for customer satisfaction isn't it
Tightlines all
Catch you latere

Too late, I have met Trev and I think I carried it back with me.
