Hey mate

Do a bit of research when buying from any tackle shop especially all the online ones that dont have a shop front. Not about to bad mouth anyone or any brand but go onto ALIBABA and search the image of the reel / rods and see what comes up. Have a look at the reel below for instance. A few tackle stores are just buying off Alibaba or ali express and basically triple the price when it gets to Australia. Ive bought heaps of stuff off alibaba and its really safe, just like EBAY

 How do you satisfy yourself on the quality of the products mate? They look good but I find it hard to gauge without getting my hands on the product.

 Thanks for the tip mate! Yeah I was a bit sis as couldn't find any reviews on line so thought I'd as here. Could see how any online store could just grab these and marks them up/ rebrand them. Does make you wonder!!

thanks again!

 Not sure if you watch youtube but one of the blokes on the saltfix and rush gang videos uses his retro style rod for snapper fishing.
