    Lol... That wouldn't surprise me!

    That place is just down the road from me and is their central distribution depot and the size of it is staggering!

    They have a very large retail outlet there too although I rarely visit it, to give you an idea of scale the smaller detached box type building to the top left of the main depot is the retail outlet and is probably larger than many supermarkets...

    And possibly the most unhelpful and disinterested shop floor staff in the history of retail.

    "cheap labour" - That's narrowed your purchase options to less than 1% of all available goods nationwide...

    All I've ever bought from them has been good, though I've only gone for their Barble feeders (their spelling), which were half the price of the Korum equivalents and branded items such as Kamasan Black Cap feeders.

    Learned my lesson buying rubbish at shows, much of it was theirs, not a good idea, unreliable tools.

    The kids bought me an 11ft margin float rod from Used Tackle as a present - it needed six ounces of lead wrapped round the butt just to balance it! As if that wasn't bad enough, the action was more suitable for margin-caught marlin than commie carp. "You gets what you pay for" was never more true. never had the heart to tell the bairns, though.
    "I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us...very hard to explain why you're mad, even if you're not mad..."
