Can anyone reccomend some please? I looked at Bennetts but there ordering system is an online disaster and there is no apparent move to a secure server and indeed no padlock to indicate a SSL state. There is no chance i am going to put my credit card details on an open server. Plus 6.50 P&P per item is rather off putting. All the other shops, well just seem a little shadey if you know what i mean, non seem to give me the confidence to try them

If you are not accustomed to ordering from the US, assume you will pay 1 for each $1 of the price quoted because of shipping, VAT, etc.

I've done lots of online ordering from both and they are great. I haven't had any problems at all but they will correct any you do have.

They both have the same "return" policy too. If you don't like it, return it for a full refund.

hi,
www.tackleshop.co.uk has free p&p and the items always arrive the next day or a max of 2 days in my experience only fault is they don't stock loads of stuff - but very impressed with their service also benwicks is good and wmac.co.uk
hope this helps

Hi Poles,

I have just tried it and it works okay at the moment.
Normally when a connection is refused it is because a server is either down or switched off temporarily for example maintenance.

Hi Smudge,

There are two places that spring to mind - try our Classifieds page and post an advert Click Here and the other is http://www.anglinglines.co.uk/ which has a few good deals.

i would advise caution when dealing with aaangling especially if your going by their adverts in the national press.

it looks like they are advertising products at very cheap prices , when in reality they dont even have those items in stock.

strangely the "cheap" items can be ordered for you but at the normal full price.
