Default Re: Buy from Orvis

I must say, I have always been a big Orvis fan, customer service second to none.
But in the last couple of years, things have changed, for me anyway, their range of rods and reels doesn't appeal to me at all, as a river and stream man.
Blue blanks on a river rod? Not for me, since the old Battenkill,LA reels went, I just can't see another I like.
The BBS is still pretty, and a decent little workhorse, but apart from that I'm finding it hard to get excited about any of their tackle.
The returns policy on waders recently changed, well it has in the
UK, and I am on my third pair of Silver Labels, but when they pack in I'll be going for the Reddington Pro Sonics I think.
Perhaps it's just me, but I know a few friends who think the same.
But anything that supports the forum is good.
