    Hardy Angel elaborate Fake ?

    Hi all I took a punt on a reel, if it ever comes. It doesn’t seem to have a serial number on the reel. I think it’s a Mk1 Hardy Angel or a decent fake? Anyway I’m not too fussed as I only paid £40 for it . iCloud iCloud iCloud

    From whippy to Stiff

    Hi guys, I've recently got hold of a guideline LPXE, now my former rod was a sage flight and the two rods are distances apart the guideline is very stiff and the safe is very floppy. I had a couple of casts with the new guideline and it felt very odd. What changes should I be making to my casting?
