    An internal diameter of an 8mm alconite will be a 10mm ring size.

    I have them on the tip section of a pair of AFAW match rods that I have had over 7 years of hard use now !!

    They have cast a long way, a lot of times with 80lb shockleaders so I cant understand how you say they wont cast ????

    What exactly is stopping them casting ?????

    I wouldn't be whinging on here no matter what I had paid.I would have kept it between me and the rod builder,not post it on an open forum trying to get the bloke a bad name.You could have gone to Citizens Advice in the first place and taken it from there instead of posting on here.

    I quoted from the text you put on,where he states that he replaced like for like,which is what you wanted.That still does not explain why you had to post on a fishing forum instead of keeping it private.You should have sorted it out without posting on here,that is not what this forum is for,or haven't you gathered that yet.That's probably why you are not getting much sympathy from the members.Keep it personal! don't make it public! Saying that it's now too late you've gone and done it,let it rest.
    PS. We don't have a problem,you do.Sort it.

    Thanks for your input everyone,

    I'm the builder in question, he's already been laughed off the Fisherman's Locker on FB so is trying to bad name me elsewhere,

    He never at any point paid £183 or whatever it was, I done the rod in exchange for a spinning rod.. Broken spinning rod at that, but I was happy to go ahead in the end, done the work swapped the guides for same size guides sent the rod home as far as I knew everything was hunky dory The End.

    Nope 10 months later up pops a message telling me the rod won't cast lol, apparently the same size guides you can find on a beach rod let alone an uptider were too small ?

    Yes I offered him some bigger guides, nothing to do with anyone being at fault, I was just trying to be a nice guy, before I got much further into the conversation (still being a nice guy as you may see if he put up ALL the replies) I'm getting threatened with Trading Standards and Visa Card Chargebacks.

    Very Sorry but my good nature expired right there when I was getting bullied into handing over money or else feel the wrath of the Trading Standards.

    The guys a complete idiot Rossco99 :confused:

    he cant even answer a basic question about what his actual issue is !!!

    I am guessing he after some sort of cash reimbursement from you because hes skint :rolleyes:

    its a shame your good name has been dragged through the mud unnecessarily:(

    Hope you get a good outcome from it and trading standards will see hes trying to scam you :mad:
