Did you already have your eye on this rod before I posted it?
Yes I have a Barder saved search on Ebay and was considering it. Your post was part of the catalyst though.
Pleased to see it will be getting used for the purpose intended, good luck!

Not at all. I hope to christen it tomorrow evening with a nice carp from my local pond. :Beg:
That was the one; pleased to see it is going to get used for the purpose intended, good luck! Can't wait to see the photos with a bend in it.

If you fancy selling some of yours you know who to ask first.
