    First purchase from UK. Should I be dissapointed?

    Do you mean that if I try to fix it and fail so and make it worse they wont't replace it?

    The package box was ok I think. The problem was that the rod is way shorter than the box and it had free movement up and down the box.

    Yea it makes, but yesterday I've read that once a customer asked for a replacement. The total tackle shop replayed that they will first need to send the rod to the manufacturers and the inspection can last 6-8 weeks

    How long can the replacement take?
  5. Hello there guys SO finally got my first carp rod ever. I bought it from ,,total fish tackle'', and it was my first ever purchase from abroad. It's one of the cheap rods - Shimano tribal TX2. It looks really solid for the money, but i couldn't notice that one of the ring was out of shape. They say buy, cheap buy twice One of my fellas made a laugh that guys from the ups service played soccer with it So I've contacted the shop customer service and they've replayed me: ,,Hi, I can see that this is slightly out of shape. However the rings can with slight force bend back straight without causing any damage. If you could try easing it back straight, that would be great.'' Am I overreacting or this is just ridiculous? I know the damage is minimum, I wasn't even considering sending it back, but they've proposed me to fix it myself without any assurance of success. What do you guys think?
  6. Does anyone know the difference between theese 2? TX2 Is the newer model of velocity. I've read that velocity was pretty damn succesfull model, so Is TX2 even better for its price? Its on a sale at total fishing tackle. 50 pounds looks like a really solid deal.

    Thank for a fast reply I live in Lithuania, we don't have that many carp here, and they tend to live in lakes that are really big. Majority of carp anglers here fish with 13ft because distances are ussually 100m or more. So I will prefer a kit that will help me to reach distance and precission with ease. For small ponds or lakes I will always use feeder rods for bigger pleasure
  9. Hi everyone, looking forward for my first carp fishing season I'm searching for my first carp rods. By the size of waters nearby , I have decided to buy a pair of 13ft 3,5lb. Things that I'm looking in a rod is a slim blank, good fish playing action and light weight. I'm willing to spend 75-150£ each for a rod. I have few rods in mind: *Shimano tribal tx2 or tx5 *Greys prodigy apex So yea can't say much here :), maiby you guys can give my an advice. Sorry for my English writing skills .
