I went on Ebay last night, as I logged on I went to the fishing section, I saw a pole for sale for £120 plus £15 postage, it was a Maver 16 metre. No one had made a bid and the sale was up in a matter of minutes so I made a bid and I won with no other bidders... Then I realised I had made a bid on a section only of the pole not the full pole, I thought 'Oh no' it was my own fault for not reading it properly.
I mailed the guy selling it and explained what I thought it was and made a mistake, he replied with giving me his phone number. I phoned him straight away and he was laughing, he understood my mistake and offered to re-fund my money, then he said he had another FULL pole he was selling for roughly the same price and that was on Ebay, I looked at it and it great so we did the deal. He said he would post it off today for me.
Luckily he was a decent guy, some others might have just said, 'Hard luck, you should have read the advert,' and wouldn't refund the money.
The pole I bought off him was a Maver 14.5 metre with 3 different power tops plus a cupping kit, it looked very good on the photo's, any way I got a good pole in the end for the same price.
