Comparing my Grebes of all three lengths some years ago, I would saying the only difference was the length. Possibly a tad different in tapers but not much in it.

I have a cane rod marked " The Bittern " but with no makers name
Is there any possibility this could be a B James?

I've a B. James rod which a friend reckons its a 'stepped up' Carp. However, the decals just say Mk IV and I'm no expert
although the tip section looks fairly stout. Can the B.James experts help out with identification?

We also need a new button and would he happy if someone can help.

Hope you enjoy the shots including my front lawn
