Ill health / mental health - may have been suffering for a while and just had to stop. We all know how hard the man worked and the masterpieces he produced.

It was obvious that something was very wrong with him. Heís not a young man.

I wish him all the best.

This has also come up on the BCSG forum recently. John Carver has spoken to Graeme, and due to 'personal reasons', Dymag are no longer currently trading, although this may change in the future.

Forgive me for chelping out the obvious but instead of repeated attempts of failed and seemingly futile digital electronic methods to communicate with the party in question maybe go old skool by way of a vehicle ride to the regestrated business address upon then personally in physical form make any enquiries relevant, although obviously a tactic of extreme discomfort these days, worth a long shot surely.

FWIW I've pair of custom YAC 9ft stalkers since they came out and yes, they are lovely rods, however I do find that being 3 piece they're a bit of a faff to put up/pack down whilst "set up" if that makes sense? Very easy to get in a bit of a mess lol.
I can definitely see the attraction in the scope type rod format being effectively a 2 piece.
I lug them around in a Dymag holdall which is a cracking bit of kit. It was the only option for short rods available at the time IIRC apart from the little YAC bag thing.

And the 2lb 11ft Gti's fantastic short to mid range carp rods......didn't know they existed until I spoke to Roger Hurst and he made me up a pair

He sells a lot of them as flood water Barbel rods so they've got a bit of backbone to them as well as a fantastic through action for close range work

You should try one with 9 little guides starting at 30. You could pull a train with it
I want to get hold of their 1.75 barbel stalker, never handled one so reluctant to gamble on a pair but would be interested in playing with some build configurations on them

Sounds nice 👍

Never used a Ballista in all honesty. One of my mates who's done some rod building in his time is a big fan of the Ballista blank kept telling me to get hold of a set if I fancied some nice playing rods. Maybe one day 🙂

Maybe you're super picky due to you being a builder. I'm happy with the Dymags lovely action, just a shame no-one can get hold of him. Maybe he's sharing a brandy and cigar with lord Lucan?

Agreed, and personal opinion but I think the 12ft6inch torrix te is a far superior rod to those 12ft dymags.

If anyone buys them at that price they need head testing ! And the harrison 3 piece stalkers are better than the dymag 3 piece stalkers in my opinion and yes i have had both.

I thought that but it says they have 2 in stock. Couldn't be bothered to call them to check as I'm not really in the market atm. Same principle applies though, shortages of stock always push prices up.

Thatís a tackle shop thatís priced it at £3000 they just put the price as itís out of stock saves them having to relist it when they get more stock and they lower the price back to the normal price when itís back in stock

There's a trakker tempest 150 for sale at £3000 on e bay. Shortages are allowing people to push prices to unbelievable levels. Unless people refuse to be taken for a ride it will just snowball.

A number of reasons i believe , they are so busy they can no longer produce my 9ft blanks as i dont order huge numbers . Staff shortages, supplies really slow coming through .etc etc. Most of the Carp blanks should be ok im told.

As far as i am aware they are essentialky Torrix blanks , however it could be why no one is hearing from him as harrison are revamping and cutting alot of blanks from production , my own 9ft blanks have been stopped aswell as float rods and a large number of fly blanks !!!!

When I bought my rods
Communication was lacking apart from taking order discussing what I wanted and saying they were ready.
In todayís modern instant world people just want an instant answer
What I would do provided he is well enough
Would be to put a automatic reply on emails even if itís saying as above
No new orders are being taken Ö

you donít have to worry about it anymore then until you are ready or able to start taking orders again.

If he's just concentrating on other areas of business then it's poor form imo. There have been loads of guys posting on this and previous threads for several months now saying they're being ignored. The Dymag website is live and clearly publishes the method of contact. To just ignore everyone using that contact method for months on end is a bit of a travesty for me. All he has to do is put something on the site saying orders are not currently being taken.

Of course if he's ill or has other personal issues it's understandable, but if it's just because he's focusing elsewhere at least publish something to save all these potential customers (and himself) a lot of hassle.

That's a very good post..

No one knows what another person's life is like,I'll give an example...
So one of the staff members where I work was considered lazy,slow,rubbish at her job,overweight etc,etc..even her husband, who works here moaned about her..

During lockdown,she put on loads of weight,..today I hear she ,as from yesterday,diagnosed with a brain tumour..

Makes,everything in perspective..makes one think..

This covid thing has ruined many,mentally ,physically what ever,I don't judge ..I try not to..!

Im not trying to defend Graeme as his communication skills leave alot to be desired but.

1. Graeme has other business interests outside of fishing.
2.The lockdown has affected people in different ways some wont ever be the same again.
3.If you have companies like Harrison and century struggling for materials then us one man bands as you put it are way down the list.
4.Getting blanks used to take 10 days on average from both Harrison and century its now more like 12 week if you are lucky.
5 .Graeme could be ill either physically or mentally , i really dont know .
If you have repeatedly tried to contact him and he is,nt answering (he did,nt answer me either )then obviously something is not right and constantly badgering him wont solve this , its frustrating i know but thats the way it is .In a week were we have lost a fellow angler i feel we all need to be a little forgiving and patient.

I think theres a bit more to it than that. I spoke to him in November over the phone and he had a few issues outside of work. But he did agree to complete an order for me personally, whatís gone on after that I donít know but hopefully he is keeping well, could be materials, could be life problems, who knows. Iíd sooner wait till itís an impossible to see if I can get the bits rather than use anything else.

I just hope that Graeme isnt ill

and its just a materials supply issue think people need to realise he is just a 1 man band outfit and maybe he is just simply overwhelmed
must be literally hundreds or even thousands of people trying to contact him especially all the extra caused by people being furloughed and not at work he may be struggling to get materials himself

One man band who clearly canít keep up with the demand which I can imagine with this lockdown and meant many more anglers treating themselves more to custom gear.

Be it custom rods, custom reels weíve all experienced longer waits when dealing with small / sole traders.

Also I can imagine parts / materials on longer lead times.

Heís probably as we speak head down trying to complete orders .

If he doesnít respond lots of other companies you can go to.

I had a similar experience with a query about the Dymag Mobile system in November last year.

I made an initial email enquiry in early November, got a response a few weeks later asking which option I wanted. I responded, but heard no more, despite a few follow up emails and a call from me.

Something is obviously amiss, but I'm clueless as to what ...
