    I was not expecting it to come out when I decided to take out some money from a cash point. It looked weird and it felt weird. It was way too transparent and felt way too plastic. It reminded me of monopoly money and I was so sure that I was going to get rejected if I tried to use it in a shop. I did not like it at all. Why did they have to change it anyway :sad:

      I went to pick 5 quid up as soon as i found out that it had came out! I preferred the original size tbh and they have become too small

      Haven't had one yet, but it's still a fiver, so it doesn't really matter. The guy at BoE said it was harder to forge the note, so that's why they've implemented it.

        There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. It's understandable that at first you may not like it much because you aren't used to it but to complain about it as soon as you got it is just a bit stupid imo. They're much better in every way. You'll probably start loving it soon. Give it some time.
