thats very generous of you Billy, so it only seems far to tell you that i wont be out fishing again until the first week of November and i am pretty much a sea fishing novice (even though the bass skipper said i was a natural, ha ha). so would a novice review be OK? although i have used plently of braid for coarse fishing. i could always share some of the spool with my experienced fishing partner. will also put a link to your website and the UKFF on my website www.benchmark-archaeology.co.uk. will email you now, thanks billy :-)

Not a problem rich i will put your comments in next year and i value the opinion of any one who uses our tackle i dont believe you need to be an expert to have an opinion on how a product performs, and this is what this site is all about we all learn together and share knowledge it makes us all better anglers in the end. Wink It will be in the post tommorrow morning.

to be honest Billy, i prefer the historic building side of my work these days, less mess, less to go wrong etc. currently working on a medieval cottage in Leics, various farm buildings around staffs, and a victorian police station in birmingham (when im not fishing). need to get my website updated.
