Just love to leave a testimonial. We live in Australia and there are some really top quality products you can buy here but nothing as good as Johns products. I personally have bought 8 rods and several lures We got our fist 70kg striped marlin on a fish head lure. The rod performed top notch and the lure was the best. John would have to build the best rods and lures in the world? John thanks once again.
