      Not sure of how much these Rods retailed at New so Is this a fair reflection of the price of these Rods? What size is the rod mate?

            CRG, I will measure the rod if you want but its 2 piece with 3 different length tips so the length varies depending on which tip you use but its around 9 foot. This rod is from the eighties if I remember & had a real cult following amongst skimmer/ bream anglers because the tips were so sensitive & blended into the blank so well. It was designed I believe for the Gloucester Canal to show up the very shy bites. Anyway if it sells & somebody uses it again great if not I will keep it as it is a classic. cheers John

                        Most of the OLD crowd are still around up here although most of us tend to fish Commercials
                        Steve is 1 of the few that still fishes Rivers .
                        When i am able i will be hopefuly joining him on a few River matches

                              Shark, I would dig out a tube for it & I guess postage £7-£8 so if you want it lets say £47.50, either cheque/bank transfer or payPal gift.

                              pm me your details & I will send you mine.

                              cheers John
