Anybody own one ? In particular the 13ft float rod .
Is it a case you get what you pay for ? Crazy price of £20 at the moment

If these are the Stillwater (Pro) Matchstix rods, the reason for the even lower prices has probably got something to do with Angling Direct buying Chapmans from Glasgow Angling. The Stillwater brand was Chapmans/Glasgow Angling's own brand. Glasgow Angling are still selling it. As AD already have their own branded gear, it wouldn't be surprising if AD are getting rid of all the Stillwater stuff. I've no idea whether the rod in question is any good at the original price, but it probably hasn't got cheaper because it's terrible.
