Fly Rod Warranty

This guarantee is limited to the Original Purchaser and is not transferable to future owners. If during 3 years of the original purchaser, the rod should break or fail, for whatever reason, simply return the rod, invoice, sales receipt, or proof of purchase and we will replace the rod or damaged/faulty part by return.

If within the first 36 months from the date of purchase the failure is due to a manufacturing fault or material defect, then our normal manufacturer’s guarantee will apply and the rod or part will be replaced free of charge, with the relevant handling/postage fee returned. Fees will apply if the failure was due to user error.

Should the rod in question be discontinued it will normally be replaced with a new model up to a similar value, or there is the option to ‘trade up’ to a rod of a higher value, by paying the handling/postage fee, plus the difference in value between the two models. Please note however, that in the case of discontinued models, if purchased in a clearance sale, the maximum value covered by this guarantee is the price paid and not the original RRP.

Amazing fly line

I was a little skeptical about this line but decided to bite the bullet and give it a try after doing a little research, if anyone reading this is thinking about ordering some all I can say is don't hesitate, I used it for the first time at the weekend and it is brilliant, I was casting alongside a friend who was using a top of the line greys fly line and my peg was a lot more restricted for back casting as there were trees and a raised bank behind me, 2 casts to bail the overhang to the rod tip, one false cast to load the rod and it flew out! Twice the distance of my friend with a quarter of the casts, it was a very active day with fish surfacing all around me, the line picked up so easily I could quickly and accurately target them every time, I was noticing a lot of people watching me, i assume wondering how I was managing to land my fly on the distant fish, this was giving me take after take after take, by far THE best line I have ever used and the ordering and delivery process was faultless, I will definitely be putting another order in! Thanks sunray for a truly first class product.

The short head fly line is fantastic lands straight when cast and gives you good presentation, well worth the money.

Good product and good price 👍

Angus McLeod (Wigton, GB)

I bought the Short Head with Overhang Marker when it was on offer a couple of months ago. From memory, I think I paid £24.99 plus postage, and at that price I would certainly buy another.
The line cast superbly -- ignore the AFTM rating and go by the weight of the head, as my 4wt appears to be convinced it is a 6wt -- but there is one major drawback.
I fish for a couple of hours or so, perhaps five days a week, and this line just isn't man enough for that sort of work.
The coating at the rear of the head, the area which takes the most punishment on shorter casts, began to break up pretty quickly. And let's face it, you are not forever aerialising 30ft of a 4wt, are you?
The line is still useable, and I am happy to treat fly lines as consumable. I just don't want to consume them quite so quickly.
At £25 I would grit my teeth and stump up the cash for another one. But certainly not at more than £60 on my doormat.

Sunray competition float line with over hang marker

bought this line and its great wouldnt use any other

D Paxton (Gateshead, GB)
7# short head with overhang marker

This is an excellent line, so easy to use. I got it for sea trout fishing at night for use with bigger flies and a sinking tip and it handles everything with ease. It even handles the more delicate work in the daylight hours with small flies.
Also a single hand spey cast with a haul can put out a good distance which makes this line a handy tool when you have trees and bushes behind you.
Top marks 👍

So far so good

I have used this line extensively for the last four weeks and it cast really well. Standing up can put the whole line out and sitting in a boat almost all. Lands straight and floats well using his line slick. One issue the plastic cracked at the welded loop but so far not an issue as I was planning to replace it anyway with a braided loop.
