    Default New Carpworld

    Just received the new carp world in the post
    Are there any articles in there? So many adverts and a guide of how to cast!

    got a 12 month subscription for my birthday last year, last one came last month. I won't be renewing it. There must be a market for a bi-monthly or even quarterly mag that isn't full to the rafters with adverts. I appreciate that advertising keeps the production cost down, and in turn the cost to consumer, but when they influence articles and review results it's going too far. I'd happily pay 6 or maybe 8 every other month for a good, thick, high quality mag with interesting articles and stories from anglers both known and unknown.

    Saying that, an article on how to cast wouldn't go a miss for me...

    Oh gawd........haven't opened mine yet. I thought last months was diabolical. I too bought the half price subscription.

    I had a number of years away from carp fishing and when I got back into it a couple of years ago, I was shocked at how many carp mags there where and how
    crap they had become. Big Carp used to be good, it's now shockingly poor. Carpworld seemed the only one left worth buying, Bill Cottam is entertaining, Terry
    Dempsey's two part article, Mark Holmes etc. Then last month it plummeted. Sounds like this months is continuing downwards. Doesn't look like i'll be renewing
    my subscription.

    Hopefully Gaz's subsurface will fill the gap.

    i posted the same comment in the carpology thread. I also got the subscription at 25 and tbh, carpworld was always in my opinion heads above any other mag when paisley was fronting it up. Martin Ford almost destroyed it, Paisley came back and the magazine went back to its strengths. The new chap, pah. if it continues in the same style, i will not be renewing my subscription as it is becoming too advertorial based and i have to agree, almost 6 pages on how to cast inlcuding photographs on how to stand....come on! Very Poor.

    Like others, I took out the half price subscription this year.....and even thats been a waste of money. Last months was worthy of a flick through and straight in the bin, this months looks worse.

    All the mags seem to have gone downhill recently....

    Bought BC and Carpworld for last 15+ odd years and have every one still in what is a rather large and heavy worthless collection!

    Carpworld used to have 2 or 3 decent articles but last 6 months have been worse, advertorials, and just boring uninspired articles or faces pushing product....nothing in this month even made me read it, and last 2 months where the same, quick flick as it comes through post and then ive lost interest and its lucky if I pick it up again.

    BC still has a few good articles and series but its a bit hit and miss and defiantly padded out with big pic s and catch reports more than previously.

    Only used to read it for Cottams bit, GlobeTrotters articles and Jake Langley-Hobbs bits were the only ones worth a read!

    Agree with the above. The half price subscription is beginning to look a bit dear! The constant promotion of items is getting ridiculous, the articles repetitive. In last months issue there was a write up on a new landing net support thingy. Think boat rod rest with bankstick threads. I've yet to see a more a cumbersome solution to a problem that doesn't exist. Read the review however & you'd think it as vital as your rods. All a bit of a shame really. The demise of the last credible read.
