    in reply to: Plumrose lunheon meat green tins. #177074

    I pick up 4 tins a week in Morrison’s (there own brand)on our weekly shop.They are £1.49 each(300g)and are IMHO the same meat as Plumrose and as I seem to keep getting £5 off vouchers for our next shop,in my mind the 4 tins only cost me

    I have to agree with a few above.Seems like it was thrown together and all the staff could have a jolly up over the festive season. 😡

    How old is the pole?.
    Are there any short 4s and a dolly butt.

    The spectron m2 was marketed as a silvers pole I’m I not correct so your telling me that when it’s got hollow elastic in it that fishing it at full length it’s stiff !! Well that’s not how it felt to me and if it was such a fantastic pole why do you never see them on the bank ?? It felt like a sloppy pole to me with with the hollow in as you say that is my opinion and am talking out of my arse!!!

    You are very much correct,Silvers pole rated to a 12 elastic.You still have not said that you have ever owned one??.Maybe the one you tried had Purple/red hydro in it.My hollo in mine is maver retro 6-10 and white hydro,all hollo and no droop in mine at 16 mtr.

    I agree with Andy my knowledge of the super slim is that it’s the spectron m2 mandrel these did not sell as they were not very stiff and a crap all round pole stick to the 13m package of the normal airity you can always add sections at a later date if you wanted but personally I would go for the full 16m package then you could always sell the butt sections and get some cash back it would probs work out cheaper than the 13m pack that way pal

    Have you ever owned a Spectron M2?,not sure where you get the not very stiff and crap pole from.Your talking out of your arse imho.

    I like a few others still use the original daiwa spectron competition, which I think is a fantastic all-round pole and am dreading the day I have to stop using it.

    Most of my fishing is silvers especially on my local club water and I have purchased the daiwa spectron M2, (rated to 12 elastic) which I will use from now until summer. It’s light, stiff and a pleasure to use, and often on ebay for little money as most want carp poles.

    I would seriously recommend this pole to anyone who fishes silvers.

    Spooky,as i have the same 2 poles.Used the m2 sunday and had 50 plus pound of carp on it.Not using the original spectron anymore and willing to let it go for £300.It is 16 mt and comes from the number 5 to the 16 mt section,with pro repairs on the number 5&6 sections.Also a good buy for anyone needing spares.

    gotta agree the quadbox is exellent , had rive d36, octbox. matrix ,daiwa 300 etc and this is the best imo, the matrix is also good but its big 2 get in car etc and the footplate was a nitemare.

    Another vote for the Quad box.More comfy than a rive and also much quicker to get level than the rive.

    in reply to: 30m quad box legs?. #169671

    Thanks James,was maybe wishing the 36 bits would clamp up tight enough on the 30m quad legs(as it is only 6m bigger?)back to the preston bits now then. 🙁

    in reply to: wheres the hardest fighting carp you have seen ? #168689

    Stowe school 11 acre lake near Buckingham.Proper,proper pure 100% wildies,they go up to 12lb and never known carp anywhere fight so hard. 😮

    in reply to: Seat box options #167185

    I have the quad box,the smaller one and i am well pleased with it.Had a few boxes over the years,including a rive.For commys this 2drawer one is spot on. 🙂

    I used to use the fox line and have found the Guru n-gauge as a very good replacement.

    in reply to: RIVE BOX LEGS #166460

    No need to keep me informed Chris,as i would never buy a rive again.The joke bit mate was about the shop guy telling you to put rubber bits on the leg block.Also carrying the box on a short walk(where icould not use my trolley the strap broke and the box went down the side of my leg,taking the skin off.(i was wearing shorts at the time and had a john cleese moment? giving that rive the biggest kicking of it’ s life. 😀 😀

    my box is the D36 hsp open
    its the new one where you can remove the leg without dismantling the whole box
    I have just being informed by dave glover from bobco that I need to glue some soft rubber to the inside of the clasp this will hopefully stop it slipping
    thanks for you help though guys

    That is a joke,i had a st25 many years ago and the back right hand leg kept slipping.Done my head in and even put a sweetcorn tin under the frame? on one match at the glebe.Got shot of it and got a £200 sensas box,which i found much better.Up to a grand plus for a box and you have to mess about with leg 😮
