I have to disagree, it is a great place to buy cheap tackle & if you like it that's OK. But they do sell a load of well below par gear.
A friend of mine bought an Avanti pole, very soft & bendy verging on a banana.
He also got a pair of bait runner type reels £20 for the two, one of which he gave me, in less than a year it gave up the ghost. The push button release for the handle has a small piece of gun mettle to lock in place when in use, it snapped. The reel by the way was a Fire runner.
I used it for a minimum of three times a week, I would expect more ware than that.
A lot of people buy Dragon but not for me I've tried it.
