I have used PENN gear and I have no reason to complaint about it at all but I saw this video from a fellow countrymen and I was in stitches watching it.

Apparently, this guy sent a reel for servicing to PENN and after 6 months the reel came exactly in the same condition. Here's what he has done to service it himself...

Can anyone identify the reel? Seems like a sargus...

Cheers,
Luis

I think I am right in saying they are another brand destroyed by Pure Fishing, no?!!!

Can we start a campaign, please. No one to buy anything made by Pure Fishing EVER again, regardless of them making you feel you are getting a bargain?!

You are not!!!

Their accountants are.

They are mugging people with brand names!!!

I have been looking at fly rods recently and it almost goes without saying that I uncovered a few lousy reviews on Hardy customer service recently!
Another great brand bites the dust.
I am just going to buy anywhere but.
Sage, Century, Avet, Release, Accurate, Shimano, Zziplex.
Companies that care, and give you what you pay for.
Not undercharge and palm you off with tat, on the promise of past reputation.

If Pure Fishing set up an Escort Agency, they would get a homeless minger to change her name to Kelly Brook, and charge £50 an hour for her. You would think you were getting a bargain till the doorbell went!
