    Default JRC chairs

    I purchased a jrc lowchair a month or two back as my old chub chair was looking very sad and worn. Its stood the rigours of near on twenty years of mild abuse on steep rocky trent banks and the like but sadly it was time to change. I looked at what was available and decided to buy a nice looking JRC with locking legs- a nice safety feuture and the lok tite leg adjustments
    BAD choice. Already the stiching has come undone on a stress point at the seat front and even more irritating one of the front legs refuses to stay where I want it too, sliding down all the time. Really annoyed at myself for throwing good money at such tat.
    I suppose its too much to ask for such simple things to be put right at the design stage, even worse is that some clown field tested one and said they were fine.

    I did chef-- went in three differant tackle shops to look at what was on sale locally and a bit further, the chubs I saw have a soft upholstered back that in my experience wouldnt last long and if it got wet would take eons to dry ,tho the korum has the best locking legs its just to big and cumbersome for my kind of angling (and car boot storage).
    It was size, design and weight that made me go for it.
    Such a pity really that some very simple things have let me down.
    The stiching ok but on the stress points it should be much stronger, the irritating slipping leg would have been cancelled out with the manufacturer using ribbed alluminium tubing .

    Sorry to hear of your misfortune Flight. I'd contact the seller about a replacement. Under the Sale of Goods Act the chair (or any product) should be 'fit for purpose' and obviously yours isn't.

    Just for the record; I bought a JRC recliner from Bennetts about 8 years ago and it is still as good as new even after a lot of use.
    I tread the path where no one goes,
    and cast to fish nobody knows.

    Sounds like a Friday afternoon one Flight, I've had a JRC x-lite specialist for many years now and it's still in good nick - wouldn't swap it.
    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    I don't think chairs last as long as they used to do. I seem to get 2 or 3 years from one before I repair it which only delays the inevitable new purchase. I have found that the low type chairs don't last as long as the taller versions possibly due to the extra pushing and tugging to stand up by this creaking OAP.

    Hi Flight.......I too have a Chub chair ...I think it is called the Trent Chair and I have had that for over 10 years now and it is still going strong. I bought it when I had my own tackle shop in Sheffield...in fact I bought two of them and still have one in my garage that has never been used...well, maybe a couple of times by the son in law.
    I suspect that I will probably never get to use the new one....I think the current one will be with me until I get the invite to fish the Great Barbel River in the Sky.

    Maverick. My old chub was the "Trent", super job, wish I knew you had one spare afore I went forth with hihopes.
    Just a thought---- where was your old tackle shop. Pm me if you prefer.
