Seem to remember a lengthy review in the now defunct Angling magazine. They were not impressed as I recall!

It was a bit of a flop and as Tony has suggested it did recieve pretty poor reviews - however as a piece of angling history and as a collectible item it looks in really good order, I have seen a couple but not in this condition and certainly not in its original box. May we have a couple more photos of it?

Looks a lot more complicated than sliver paper and a penny on the spool mate..... :Confused:
