 Yeah bugga, nice dhu tho. I busted one of them putting the hurt on a sambo near the boat years back. The shop I bought it off sorted us out with a replacement which was good of them.

I've snapped 3 T curves! All replaced straight away, except the last one (which was a 37kg model), where they let me upgrade to an alutecnos blue jigging rod, and I paid the difference. The alutecnos lasted around 12 years, and I snapped it on a huge cod at gnaraloo.

 What model was that rod ? I have had the Deep jig 200 for 10 years and going strong. 2 Monties trips included so i have been connected to some serious grey taxmen over the journey.

I highly recommend them ! Have they changed the blanks over that period ?

 On my 2nd deep jig 200. 1st one snapped after I cracked the shits with a big critter and gave it an absolute hammering how they weren't designed to be treated. My fault for pushing beyond its limit so all good. 2nd one still going strong.

Just purchased a millerod 6-10 kg Barra rod sight unseen as not happy with the usual choice of rods I use. Turned up yesterday and is smick

Hopefully the new addition to the family will look after my needs for a fair while to come.
