Looks to be in stunning condition as well as being a superb rod. :Thumb:

Thank you for the information Lee, a fascinating rod, and you've done it proud.

Bumble, I look forward to improved health and a trip fishing with you very soon.


I don't think you're in any danger of being thought as showing off...you've a bit of money at the moment and you're buying some nice stuff. You've done a lot of research, made the effort, built up the contacts and you're choosing wisely. I won't deny being mildly jealous, but I'm happy for you and I thank-you for sharing your good fortune with us all.

My only concern is that you drink cheeky vimtos! :Wink:

As for your question on the enamel knowing Lee I would suggest its natural but cannot be sure.
I was very nervous about posting the rod last night so quickly after the Coxan as I was worried it gave the wrong impression that I was trying to impress but friends convinced me other wise.
The cost of both was a third of the rod that sold last night on fleebay that you and I discussed by mail which I have to say I would not have touched with a barge pole for the reasons you and I agree on.
I am very naturally tight where money is concerned and spend hours on research and my data base of anything good ever sold. Mean while Mrs B watches every episode of escape to the country that was ever made plus the repeats x 2.
The one rod I have never posted is possible the finest cane float ever produced which again I bought privately from a very trusted friend and eminent member of this forum.
My motto is very simple by from a trusted source and avoid fleebay once you get over the back problem we will go Tench fishing and you can try out the Craftversa

Please may I book a ticket and a glass of cheeky vimto please Mr Bumble sir :tea: :Wink:

Without someone posting these unusual treasures many would be none the wiser! So a big thanks!

The next time a see a rod I can look upon it in a different light - before and after restoration!

Superb job been done.
