Well the new rods arrived yesterday. Really relieved because somebody had warned me about the particular ebay seller not fulfilling orders which left me a little concerned.
Haven't had a chance to check all three but they were packaged well so no doubt they are fine. Pulled one out to have a look, lovely rods, seem superbly finished for the price (£45.00 each!!!). Nice, slim, matt black blanks, very understated graphics, which I like.
I'll use these in France and loan my Velocities to my daughter for the week.

So now have 4 sets of rods, two of which have yet to be introduced to the wife......:shock::shock::shock:

 

Well I guess you'd better sell more cars and ramp up your commission , Smufter ,  then whisk your Wife off on a weekend break ! .

Gone and ordered a set of Shimano Ultegra Ci4+ 5500 xtc from Eric’s.

Not in stock at the moment, but expected by Wednesday!

They have arrived! Oh man they are gorgeous! Light weight and a perfect size to pair with my Free Spirit ES (12ft - 2.75lb). Just waiting on the spool of Technium Black to load onto them. Got a quick overnighter planned for Wednesday.

They are lovely, lovely reels.

Almost as nice as XT-A medium longcasts.

No , my Wife would hit me around the head with the New Shoes and say " they're a lot cheaper than your Rods / you've already got enough rods / you don't catch anything anyway " .

My Wife can be very hurtful , literally .
