Be brave and have a look at the Maxcatch thread on FFF.  :D  There are lots of reviews and comments on many Maxcatch products and the overwhelming majority are favourable (even effusive).

I'm not sure it's worth it. In the past I always felt like I needed a shower  after visiting there.   :lol:

I thinned out my rods a few years ago (ordered to do so before I was allowed to buy another one :D). Those I kept varied from 10ft #7s and #5s down to an 8ft #3 and for different reasons I loved each one. But then I got into the habit of automatically just picking up my brilliant Hardy travel rod every time and for the past 2 years the others were virtually unused. So this year I made a deliberate decision to try a different rod each trip and so far I have fallen in love again with each I have taken out. Obviously, I made wise choices when buying :lol: :lol:

I might take a punt on one of these. I had a Piscifun Sword 5/6 fly reel delivered today and was pleasantly surprised with the build quality for 45.
