Yep and the beads have been sent out.

I had a xp 9ft 5# and sold it for the g-tec as i felt the g-tec was a better rod.

I found the xp very smooth to cast with but not that fast.

I am now getting a scott s4 9ft 5# as this is the best rod i have ever cast Very Happy

Hi All

I think I got the last 5wt from fishtec about 3 weeks ago, I rang to check the stock after seeing the 5wt listed on e-bay, they said only 1 left so I panicked and did a BIN, there and then !!, It was a 2 piece 8ft 6", just what I wanted.

It's was about time I had a bit of luck, I had missed a few on e-bay for various reasons, hitting the wrong key at the last minute etc, I know I know, when will I ever learn.

First mail here, but it feels a bit like home. Very Happy Regards V......
