Gday Pat
Never heard of neptune tackle, but I'm sure they're a reputable brand :ink
I'm off to Qld for a conference Wednesday morning, but weather permitting I'll be going mid-week next week. You're welcome to come along, I'll keep you posted.

Neptune are a very reliable brand - used a lot here in south australia............
Would recommend them in an instant!!

As for snapping your rod - if you looked after it, and used it properly and it snapped, then it should be covered by the manufacturer - most are!! Although i think thats only covered for a year.....It would usually only snap if you are using a line strength which is too much for the rod.........

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

I want to get a flounder light. I know you connect them to a battery but where do you get a battery, how much is a battery and how often do you have to replace dead batteries??
Thanks SAUCE

hi and1,

most of us are using old car batteries....so the cost is ZERO if you can find one. or you could go to a car wrecker and buy a second hand one... :woot: i am using a small car battery from a toyota corolla.

cheers, glen :th
