I have fished a Shakey 8/9 6 piece with the Shakey switch line since 2015 I think. It has travelled in my suitcase to British Columbia and Alaska caught loads of fish and is just a great bit of kit. I also had a 7/8 which I found a delight to fish but a tad underpowered so I passed it on to my son. OK have had a few breaks but the great thing is that replacement sections cost only £25. Compare that with the cost of having a Sage, Hardy or any other high end rod with its lifetime guarantee fixed, they seem to charge £80+ just to process the repair.
