Sorry to bring up an old thread. I acually had 3x UK50s the last being Colin. The 1st being Dave, the bait boat in the photo wasnt mine. Anyone that new me new i had a carplounge bait boat.

Lion Carp i took to court, before it could go to court they put them self into voluntary liquidation. I became a creditor however there were many others in front of me in the que who never got any money back for work they had done for them.

The 1st series of lion carp rods were good, the second lot where they were being built on an unknown blank in his garage were not.

Found an old thread with a quote from Southpork

"I was a consultant for them cerca 6 months, in that time i along with other consultans was told the rods were built by daiwa, as were customers and as was his adverts. It came to light that the rods were NOT made by daiwa. The 13ft rod i was demoi g at the shows was not the same blank as was going to customers, and rods were dropping to bits. It is claimed that the rods are caperble of over 200yds, they are not, hence why there is a high turnover of consultants at lion carp. To be fair my actual BLANK on the 36r was not to bad, but the build was shocking and they cannot be used. Its going through court as we speak.

From john."

I believe they were one of the Diawa infinity blanks

They had a few sets made with all the trimmings and took a load of pre orders when showing them at shows, then what came through was absolute *****.

I saw a set first hand and the quality of build was a disgrace - whipping on eyes with gaps in, air bubbles in lacquer, reel seat not inline.

They approched a well know builder to start making them after this and he sacked them off soon after beucase they were messing him about with supply of parts.

Im pretty sure southportrock had his fingers burnt by them as well eventually, i know that he had a lot to do with him (the northern monkeys was hilarious) and dig him self some right holes.

Don't know the bloke or the history, but having read his article and a few things spring to mind, its heavily weeded and he's got a bait boat behind him, his mat was to small for fish and he struggled to lift 50lbs!

Why is he carp fishing in the first place?

He ended up being called rockportsouth.
He made himself a target and was very argumentative.
Mmmmmm let me think, few on here like that lol

Believe me you don't know the half of it!!!
He was on the Northern Monkeys site.
I did feel for him tbh, I thought he was mentally unstable what he came out with.
