Live Fibre

Hey guys, you may remember late Jan or sometime around then i posted that i had broken my 8kg live fibre blade. After meeting one of the reps from wilson while at the barra nationals we got talking about the rods. Turns out there was a bad bunch of blanks they received from NZ (all here say). Anyway they are not making that particular rod again and have replaced it with a better territory barra pro rod. They are giving me one to replace the blade of mine that broke. I would just like to make it known publicly that they boys from Wilson seem to be doing the right job when questioned about the blades and their quality. Seems fair to recognise that, thanks boys

Good to see a company backing their products.
Personnally, I think they make fantastic rods and, touch wood, I have had no problems at all.

Good on them, nothing like a company that backs its products and can admit when they are wrong.  Even better when they do something about it!!

Wilson are a great company to deal with depsite the time delays to get rods made.... being aussie made etc. I'm stocking and have purchased two of the Territory Barra 10kg rods for myself.....using them for driftbaiting/light jigging and barra....they rock!

Nice to see a company that cares about it's existing and long term (very good) reputation - and to be honest enough to admit when bad batches occur! Full marks from me! I have a Wilson in my collection - had it for years - yes, great rods!
