Nash luggage robust?

All of the stuff I have had has fallen to pieces, on occasions under warranty. The customer service and after sales was appalling. It took a letter to CarpWorld publicising it to get my rucksack replaced after 3months.

Rucksacks you are far better getting a military Bergen! Mine is battered, bruised and still going, on its second life.

I also dislike the ethics of Nash and some of his quietly forgotten past history including Catchum, (his way into the bait industry via Rod Hutchinson),  I dislike a tackle manufacturer advocating dropping leads on his fishery (!) and his carefully chosen published biography which I think is a little short of honesty.

 

I think The only good item of Nash tackle I have had was a Nash Outlaw Hurricane bivvy, that is in fact still in good enough condition to use, which I picked oop on t'bay for £10 by looking for spelling mitsakes😮😉😆🐟

 

Fox on the other hand customer service was always spot on.

 

 

 

 

@salokcinnodrog I wish my experiences were that, spot on. Twice I've needed help, twice no reply. I did get through on the phone once and I left my number, no reply. Both emails ignored. I can only talk from my experiences and mine with nash have been exceptional. As Id stated last year 90percent of my kit was fox. Its not now and won't be anymore due to their lack of customer skills. 

@B.C. I'd have to agree. The scope range is very expensive. I got a 1.75 dwarf set up which I love for all sorts of fishing and a 3.5 set up I use for carping.  Does the job perfect for me and they are packed up and in the boot , nice and mobile. Which is what I like. each to their own I suppose. I do have a 12 foot set up but it seems pointless as none of my fishing is at a distance my dwarfs can't hit.

I had 3lb tc…… Maybe should have got the 3.5...…. Some hairy scarey scraps on the 3lb tc, almost bent double.... Exhilarating and good fun, but never quite in control.

 

I've never thought the tc on the Nash held true. Not far out but a little light. They seem a bit lighter through the tip if I'm honest. My 1.75tc isn't much different to my 1lb tc free spirit

To be honest, I do try to avoid Fox and Nash as much as I possibly can. Nash because I do not like his ethics, too much tackle returned faulty or broken when I was working in tackle shop, and Fox not always the best with the same issues of faulty gear.

 

There are also far better cheaper items out there by other manufacturers in most cases.

if you were buying 3 12 foot rods, low to medium end, what would you buy mate? 3.25-3.5 tc?

The marketing power of the likes of Nash, Fox, Korda etc has us drawn to their products on virtually any search...…. You have to sometimes dig a bit deeper to find the less fashionable brands...… I used to use the AD board to have a browse for certain items. But they don't do all brands these days, and push the big names...………. I think some companies are living off their past reputation. The likes of Trakker and Aqua for instance, used to be associated with good quality, but imo, everything out there is much of a muchness in terms of build quality and materials used.(Unless you can go top top end) You've only got to check the wayward stitching to realise that these products aren't really checked for quality anymore. So they may hit us with the R&D blag, but they are certainly cutting corners at the other end of the production line...… This makes things very hit and miss imo….. You could buy a cheaper brand with really good work done on it and like wise a more expensive brand that was rushed out the factory door to fill an order, just depends who's worked on it and who's checked it.... Some of the retail prices charged on certain kit, you'd expect a more thorough quality control. I think this is where having things manufactured over sea's becomes a problem. Once they are on the boat, there's no going back, they have to be sold regardless of quality. Shelves need filling and tills need to ring.....

I got very lucky with this bag at £16.... Really well made and an insulated compartment on top, not a known brand but every bit as good as similar bags sold for £40 plus..... Some cheap items I've bought on-line have turned out to be poor quality, but I can say the same for known brands too. Like I say, it's a bit hit and miss across the board imo….

My new Fox RX plus alarms , great alarms so far just one niggle and of course I can live with it .

Change the colour of the LED to Orange and then turn the nite light on and its Red , but lights orange on a run, go figure that , Fox probably didnt realise till to late ,but thought Hay Ho those suckers will still buy them and its to late now to rectify .

Tried emailing Fox and I was not surprised I had no reply .

This fault is on all Fox RX plus I have seen

Same story for me. No email reply from fox. After trying multiple numbers and a lot of non answered calls I got through to someone, they took my number and said I'd be called back. That call never came

Shame to hear that mate. I know they don't come cheap either. I would expect them to be bang on for their price... Even if it doesn't affect the alarm working. Each little feature is used as a selling point and should work properly...…. Sounds like they would have a hell of a lot of recalls, if they admitted the fault......
