as long as its not a horrible "unboxing" id love to see some. but the big word BIAS is what would still cause the treads you talk about. some people have a preferance and that can eaisily throw out any goodness the review may have.

I've written a cranka review if i'm allowed to post it here? I kinda thought this was for the moderators to review products...not for us?

As long as people are open about being sponsored, I doubt there is any issue with reviews, etc.

Shouldnt be a problem for us poor schlubs who arent sponsored

Though im open to offers of course lol

But on a serious note, perhaps we can set out some guidelines ala the classifieds section, where ultimately the mods can determine acceptable content.

Otherwise, its a bit of a waste of a section yeah?

Im not saying it will turn into tackle tour, it may however prevent someone from making an uninformed decision on a purchase in order to get the most out of their pursuits.

I think itd be awesome to see some reviews on gear for aussie fish. Seriously, who really cares how a reel handles a large mouth bass? I dunno how they fight, so i cant really compare them to fish i catch huh

Just a late night ramble

I think it's a great idea, a new element that this forum could gain from. Start a new review section And a new thread for each individual item etc. I'm onboard

maybe have reviews that are only positive and maybe have a submit to a mod option for proof reading, but id kill myself trying to read reviews saying oh this reel is awesome because it feels nice and looks cool, would have to be like a tech review id think.

I'm torn on this issue - I've seen the best and I've seen the worst - and all of them had the best of intentions.

really and truly do understand where you fellas are coming from with the whole 'positive' reviews, but personally, i think a review is useless if you can only here one side of it. It will put people in a situation where they are buying a crap rod or reel, because one or two people have put a 'positive' review on it. Really needs to be both ways and people need to have the freedom to dislike a product or have any negatives about it to make it a honest and truthful review that people can take notice of. Just saying...

I bought one of the new MacDonalds Barcelona brekky wraps on Sunday- big thumbs down!
Usual dry crappy muffin, with rubbery plastic cheese - you get what you pay for- but the omelet which was supposed to be the star attraction was horrid!

And that ladies and gentlemen concludes my review.
Thank you.

The last time I read a negative review from a sponsored angler - just happened to coincide with the last day they were sponsored by that company

Before you test my resolve on this issue - I have a set of 10 questions that are guaranteed to get you fired from whoever you are sponsored by - They all seem innocent until question 7

I'm personally not taking part in reviews don't think it is an issue for those that are not sponsored though, positive or negative.

I can see where you are coming from YD
