    Broadly speaking I think stuff gets discontinued because something better comes along. Not always...but I can't honestly think of anything that's been discontinued that I miss desperately. The nearest is Sufix Dura Flex line which is IMO magnificent stuff but rarely is that now to be found in a bs below 15lb. I've still got a bit left in lower bs but I'm rationing it now. There is still a bit around but the lower bs are expensive IF you can find them.

    I'd buy Sundridge Force 1.5lb line, if I could. And VMC blued size 22 hooks. And plenty of items from the Shimano catalogue circa 2002..

    Thought long and hard about this one. And can't really think of much , perhaps a couple of new boxed 501s 506s maybe.
    Cant really think of anything else tbh.

    Ultima Flo-Cast hollow fishing line. I used to use it for trotting in the summer and for floating crust for Carp and Chub, but alas it’s no longer sold.

    Same here, Keith. Nice very pale pink in colour too, if I remember.

    Edit bit: I'm now missing the Marukyu method feeder pellets in 2mm size. There a few left-over stocks in places, but the postal charges more than double the cost. I got to like a lot of their products in the end, in particular the Skrill pellets, feed and hook. Brilliant.

    I don't do a lot of method feedering, but I had a bag of the Marukyu Sticky 2mm pellets that you can just spray, rather than soak. They stuck very well, and it's a pity they won't be available. I'm also going to run out of Marukyu krill powder, which I've been dusting maggots with for a couple of years.

    I wish they still made Drennan feeder links...rubbish plastic that always split but I liked the design and the quick change weight system.

    I still have a load of the weights but no feeder links to use them with.

    Somebody stole my Hardy Marksman Supero Specimen rod model 1327727. I wish I could replace it.

    Actually I highly rate a number of the Marksman and the later Supero rods viz:

    The Hardy Marksman 13ft Specimen float
    The Hardy Supero 11ft feeder
    The Hardy Supero 12 ft 3 pce Specimen rod (as referenced above)
    The Hardy smuggler 11ft Avon

    The opinion is my own only of course.

    All the best

    Maybe that is why they were discontinued ?

    Try the Drennan Carp Feeders - same size clip for the weights

    There could be a number of different reasons why things are discontinued but I bet the main reason is...............the product didn't sell well enough to make it worthwhile.
