Yes. Got some lures from there.

Hardbodies weren't great. Some of the soft plastics are fine. I'm also trialing some bulk trebles to see how they go.

Yeah, its very hit and miss, generally the more you pay, the better the product, however it gets to the point you may as well buy from a local store.

That being said, some things are ok from there, I have found the hooks arent as sharp as reasonable local ones. I have got some good lures cheap, but the trouble is its 50/50 whether you even get whats in the picture haha. Also, the cheap brais out of china is like rope, and nearly as thick as mono.

Its a bit of fun, but I wouldnt go in expecting good quality gear, if you get it, then thats a bonus.

I have bought cheap braid off Ebay and am generally satisfied except for one lot i bought. My son hates it as it frays easily but I am not that picky.

Having said that I now look for and only buy 4 or 8 strand braid which is great. It is a far better product.

I have also bought the super cheap lures (for salmon troll) and that is what I got, cheap plastic lures - 5 for $5. They dont track too well and I haven't got a salmon, but in reality I haven't given them a real chance having only used them once.

The REAL danger in net shopping is going overboard!! In last 3 weeks I have bought 3 new LED lights, bilge pump, switch panel, led strips, anchor chain plus more.... :super:
Just need them to arrive so I can fit them all.

Cheers
