Hi mate, I have got the Salt FS to be honest has'nt had much use, but when it has been used it performed very well.
Imho well worth the £55.00 i paid for it.

i've been using the salt mpv(the multi purpose one) for estuary and bass fishing and also for spinning and float fishing.
it's a cracking rod and for the price i cant recommend it enough

I have the bass one bought it coz it won't get a lot of use for most of the fishing I do so didn't want to spend to much.
I absolutely love it tho! Obviously you can't expect it to be up there with Greys, Century etc but for the money its a cracking rod!

I've got the 10' SALT spin and on a session with grizzly it was working well as a lightweight bait rod - could cast 3oz pretty well. It's also ideal for plugs and feathers and long enough to avoid the snags.

I have the mx 13. I think its a great rod. The ceramic eyes could be better but you get what you pay for. The first eye on my rod chiped after about 8-10 sessions. Sent it off to shakespeare who sent me back a brand new bottom section of rod and payed my postage. In my opinion shakespeare can not be beaten for customer service. I just wish the rod had the ali oxide shock rings.

took my broken rod into where i bought it from today then realised i forgot my wallet and he was putting a new fuji eye on my conoflex rod come back and he had sanded the salt and just put a new eye on about 6 inches down
so i said to him NO i want a new section its only 2 months old and he said that rods dont just break themselves so i explained that it broke reeling in a bit of weed and he just shrugged n said he will call shakespeare when he isnt busy unbeliveable!!!!!:nonono:

so wondered if any1 had the shakespeare customer services number:thumbs:

:clap3:That is disgraceful as I know Shakespeare would have replaced the rod. Here is their exchange number and ask for customer services and explain what happened. I've PM'd it.
