3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought this was an ok rod and a bit of a bargain so bought 2. One was ok but the other 10ft #3 I got for french nymphing was not so good.

Firstly the cork around the handle was not fitted correctly and was creaking. Also the screw nuts around the reel seat also jammed and I couldn't free the reel and worst of all the rod tip snapped like a matchstick but thank god I wasn't playing a decent fish at the time.

Be warned, as someone already mentioned, on the face of it it seems a decent rod but in reality you get what you pay for and I have since bought a Greys streamflex and wished I got that to begin with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy little snow shovel for the car., 27 Nov. 2010
Quite a handy little shovel. Ideal for clearing snow from my car and under the tyres, as last year i had to make do with digging my car out of the snow with a scraper! Please note, i don't think this would handle heavy duty shoveling though!

1.0 out of 5 stars Superbad movie, 22 Mar. 2009
This was dire, like a bad remake of a Cheech and Chong movie and was trying desperately to be funny, zaney, supercool and hip but failed to be any of those things.

I found the characters being silly for being silly's sake tedious and annoying. I don't know how anyone could enjoy this film apart from immature stoners. Maybe the film should come free with an ounce of pinapple express to help us understand the concept.

Someone pass the skins!

2.0 out of 5 stars Adulthood? Do me a favour!, 16 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Adulthood [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
This is all about the 'gangsta' wannabes of London that could easily be applied to the denizens of all major cities. I quite reluctantly got sucked into the subculture of the characters and plot in the movie and then got bored. I found myself watching a film about kids. Think Grange Hill with knives and guns and you're almost there. If anything it gives you some idea of the mentality of these idiots. I reckon this film may appeal to a younger audience but for any forward thinking adult i would give this one a miss.

1.0 out of 5 stars The happening that never did!, 12 Oct. 2008
This review is from: The Happening [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
This is one of the worst movies i have ever seen. I don't even know where to begin with this pile of nonsense. This is a bad film with an incredulous storyline - basically, plants that release a toxin that is carried in a stiff breeze, which makes people kill themselves. Well everyone except the main characters who manage to avoid the toxins when all the people around them are topping themselves. The suicides are histerical - the guys that hang themselves in the trees all seem to be wearing red polo tops and cream chinos. The guy that ran himself over with a lawn mower was hilarious. Do not buy or rent this film - or you may find yourself heading to the garage to find the lawn mower!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 17 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Backyard Babies (Audio CD)
Picked this album up when I saw them play In the Garage, Glasgow, 5th Sept 2008. If you havn't been to see them - GO SEE ASAP! This Is the type of band that should be headlining major music festivals. Real music fans should unite, stick two fingers up to T In the park etc! Go and watch brilliant, honest rock bands like the Backyard Babies for £11 and prepare to be blown away! The new album Is excellent, go buy!
