Here's a tip for when you try to give out spelling help next time. Always make sure you follow your own advice 🤦‍♂️

I’ve never parted with the 3 Zippys I’ve had for over 30 years. It took Terry 3 go’s to get me the broomstick shore conger/skate  rod I was after.

Was never a Zzipplex fan myself…. 
 

My bro used to fish with a ZF250 and T Zero, I was a Daiwa fan, AWB129 and 126 myself

Same here ...........

For me, it has to be Century for shore and coarse rods ......... Daiwa for boat rods.

Although Julian Shambrook (who lives quite close to me) does do some excellent rods (AFAW)

Such a shame Barbara isn’t passing it onto lee to carry on.  I’ve owned more zziplex rods than anything else over the years, they just felt right to me.

Perhaps it’s just not viable as a business. We all know that the rods are top rated but how many they sell against the production cost and the associated overheads of running a small business is prohibitive.

Demand has always outstripped supply with zziplex rods. But as you say I would suspect carbon cloth and resins prices have gone through the roof, the rods hold strong money secondhand too.

Yeah but it’s not just the materials, business rates and the rent on the unit etc can be staggering as well.
