  4. Hello Newt, I do not get new information about shipping a rod to Germany for less than 25 GBP but... Dpd.co.uk is able to send parcels up to 1,75 metres and 5 kg weight for about 25 GBP. At Ebay I've seen some auctions where the seller declares a shipping rate of 15 GPB for a rod to Germany. Example: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...em=300223183901 Seller: http://myworld.ebay.de/richyf72/ I had asked him for the shipping contractor but he only tells me something like "Royal Mail".

  8. Hello Guys, I want to say thank you for the information! The different drag systems an reel sizes are cleared. Now there are some new questions occured. Will there be a technical problem if I want to fish the 501, 506 or 1044 with 0.18 and 0.20 line diameter or is it a only problem of line capacity? (I have heared that some guys use the 505 for eel fishing in the night) If 0.18 or 0.20 line is possible, how much will the 501, 506 and 1044 hold? The last question is, if someone can tell me the optical difference between the older an the newer 507? ----- I agree that a
  9. Hello, I'm looking for an Abu closed face reel for trotting barbel und chub in medium fast rivers. The reel has to handle 120-150 metres line of 0,18 to 0,25 mm. diameter (barbel).

Is it possible to get instruction manuals of the reels anywhere? Thanks very much, Thilo
