Vision Onki with two butt sections
I bought his rod new. On arrival I noticed slight cosmetic defects with the butt section. The distributor, Guide, immediately supplied me with a new butt section.
I used the rod once with the original butt and I've never used it since despite it being a very...
Three rods spring to mind that just wouldn't work for me.
1. A Vision 3 Zone 9' #5. Very well regarded by many but I hated it. Sold it to Bruce1 on here and he loved it. Possibly still does.
2. Orvis Helios 10' #5. Another rod I couldn't get on with. Hated the action. Fortunately it wasn't...
A while ago I sold a first generation (pre sintrix) Hardy Demon 9' #5 and I've regretted it ever since.
I can't find an original anywhere to replace it.
I'm thinking now that I might take a punt on a Sintrix one.
Has anybody owned both versions of Demon and if so, how do they compare...
Hmm. I was wondering about that.
I guess the clamp would be useful for the plastic boats with moulded seats.
the advert says the clamp range is 17" - 22". I'd have thought it would need to go smaller than that for many seats??
On a whim, I ordered a pair of the fit-over polaroid sunglasses on March 31st.
They arrived on 21st April - 3 weeks order to delivery - way quicker than expected.
They are pretty good glasses as well for a few pence over £7.
I was going to put this straight on Ebay but then thought I'd see if anybody here is interested.
This is the rotary version with the swivel seat.
I've only used it twice. The first time I found the seat back far too upright so I altered it with a bit of filing. Unfortunately, I...
I've found that most rods are heavier than their published weight, some considerably more.
Also, I would doubt that "fakers" would produce copies of the Shadow as it was one of the mid range models. I may be totally wrong but I'd expect fakes would be of Zeniths, Wraiths, Zephruses etc., i.e...
I think the problem with continuing to fish is that isolating, responsible anglers will become aware that people are fishing and the old "if it's ok for him, it's ok for me" mentality will begin to creep in with an increase in fishing "traffic".
It's probably quite a selfish act to continue...
Actually though, the first fish I ever caught was a mackerel from the pier in Rathmullen, C. Donegal, probably about 1965.
Tackle consisted of an orange handline on a wooden handle. Bait was a sliver of fish found on the pier iirc.
There was an angler fishing off the pier with a beachcaster...
