    Re: Chinese tackle and free rod giveaway

    As I said I wouldn't know Ocassional how it would compare to a top rod, I would hope nowhere near as good but for £16, I thought it was very good value and I could cast with it well enough for me.

    Re: Chinese tackle and free rod giveaway

    I agree with S63, buy British, at the end of the day we all benefit in the long run, taxes paid here, jobs etc.
