First time i saw fladen was in cash converters and they was selling new stock. That alone told me to avoid that range ;)

Must say I agree with your sentiments. they are flimsy and badly constructed, the rods on the other hand are something else well made, and do the job at the right price.

Got to agree - as a budget rod Fladen are not bad - had a Fladen reel for about a nano second before it broke - well 4 casts! Never again - some things just are not worth it and thank god I carry spare reels when I fish.
