  1. There is one big fault with the six shooter and thats the slipping clutch. No matter how tight you try to set it you cant, as its pre set in some way. Meaning it will slip at a lower pressure than you want. This doesnt help in setting the hooks.
  2. You mention that your intending to use this line for mackeral fishing? What weight of lead are you planning to use? I ask this as its the accepted practice of all sea anglers to use a breaking strain of 10lb for every ounce that is to be cast. So if your using 20lb BS that equates to 2oz of lead. It would be far better to use say 15lbBS line with a 50/60lbBS leader.
  3. As I said previously go to world of sea angling. Find the section on the forum that covers your area then do a search for your venue or read the posts. All the info you need will be there some where.
  4. Not knowing the methord used doesnt help give an answer. I would suggest that you have a look here. http://worldseafishing.com/forums/forum.php Not only will it cover the artea you are but give all the info you need.
  5. Do they actually exist ? No lake is "Still" theres always some movement. So any slack line will be caught by this movement and will slowly tighten upi?
  6. I suggest you read the following care-data.info/ this will explain more. My apologies as the link doesnt seem to work properly. If anyone can correct please do. I would also point out that this is being run by a firm called ATOS. Who are also responisble for the medical screening for benefit claimants. If the stories we hear about the way thats run raises questions about this care.data.
  7. Have a look at the Okuma epix pro 30. I have one of these and there brilliant. The Okuma carbonite reminds me of another okuma which admittidly was at the cheap end. This was a good little reel but sufferd from bale arm problems. Eventualy i lost a spring which ruined the reel the good sice the spools fitted the epix.
  8. I had a shop bought version of this to many years ago. It ran on Meths. I never found it to be very effective and soon was thrown to the back of the shed in favour of a Primus stove.
  9. Many thanks Ken I had searched you tube but found nothing.
  10. In the new ad the backing music is The Platters Great Pretender, although in this case its covered by a female. Who is she?
  11. Sportsman your right about underfloor being the way to go. Some of my neighbours have the air source heating with radiators and thats fully controllable.
  12. I had a ground source heat pump heating systen installed back in March. Admittidly its not been used a great deal but from when it has I'm impressed. For every kilowatt in 3 K out. It does mean over size radiators to compensate for the lower operating temp. (45-50 c) It also takes longer to get to temp compared with gas. The biggest problem i can se is the cost. I was told ours cost £12.000 with £4000 of that just for boring the 100m bore hole.
  13. Phone, unfortunatly it cant work that way here. Firefighters as such do not specilise. Yes some do have the extra trianing to operate specialist appliances ie Hydraulic platforms and turntable ladders Non operational jobs do exist but there in a small minority, and may only consist of up to a dozen posts, that is of course unless they have been reclassified and are now done by civilian staff. (Cheaper wages) Fire prevention requires a high degree of training with a minimum of 6 weeks spelised training. Depending on the Fire Authority the numbers of staff may only be 20/30. Even these j
  14. I have vista business, which seems to be missing part of windows media player. When i try to play a dvd an error message comes up saying this. is there a good simple media player available to correct this?
