Default Having troubles getting into gear when downshifting

Hey gents Matt from Australia here,
I test drove a VTI hatch today with the D16Y1 and 5pd, anyway whilst driving I found it really tough to get it into 2nd or 3rd when coming down from 3rd or 4th. I have been driving hondas for many years and know how it should feel and there is definitely an issue, just hoping someone here might know.
The guy selling it thinks it may be the clutch, although it grabs hard and does'nt slip at all, just has troubles going down gears even with a nice rev match and a double clutch.

Cheers!

my guess would be the springs on the clutch are shot or at least one or two are, a buddy of mine has a problem ALOT like this, when you go to pull it out of gear will it let it? or putting it into gear it wont let it? Also look at the clutch pedal and see how much play you have.

Yeah its a stock shifter.
It seems to let out of gear fine but going down into the next one is tough.

Thanks for the replys so far.

Likely worn or broken shift forks, 3-4 fork is my guess.
