    Elton If you really get stuck PM for an address and I'll strip, clean, reassemble and send it back to you.
  4. Or tell them they can be British, get them down, slap on the handcuffs etc give them a kicking so they realise we're not such a soft touch and our streets are not paved with gold and send them back home to tell their mates they'll get the same treatment when they pitch up on our doorstep.........oh the elegant simplicity of it all!

  6. Ken Get in touch with Stan Massey at Alba Rods and get him to quote for a custom build. He builds quite a few Conoflex rods. You get to choose your own colours etc and you may get a decent price as well. http://www.alba-rods.co.uk/rod_subs/beach_surf.htm Cheers John

Build quality is also not up to scratch....rings appear to be corroding at the foot which is a sure sign of too much hardener in the high build....which means the coatings are brittle and prone to cracking. There is actually no 'new' technology in the solid carbon rods; I had been told by someone in the know that the blanks started life as heavy duty freshwater baitcasting blanks aimed at the Scandinavian market. Being a nosey so and so, I chopped the grips off mine to find that the

  12. Ken....hope your well after the op........did my father the world of good. He actually looked better the evening after his op while still in the ICU. BAck on subject, if they were off our coast, then I would expect one or more to have been landed by the commercials. As none have yet been reported, then I'm quite happy to assume there are none!
