    Arrow WANTED - Leeda/Giant Martin Bowler Ouse Barbel Rods

    A pair of Giant Martin Bowler Ouse Barbel Rods (Twin Tips preferably) in 1.50lb or 1.75lb tc. Must be the original ones and have bags. Think they had maroon coloured blanks and either duplon or cork handles.

    I have a well-used pair but they are both a little damaged so not too sure you would want them. The lightweight tips are both missing the top 2 inches and the heavyweight tips have lost both beta-light holders.

    I have a pal who also has a pair which are probably in better condition so I'll ask him if he wants to move them on
    So many cormorants.... so few recipes.

    Thanks Geoff. I'll probably only be using them for bolt rigging for chub so not too fussed about the lightweight tips. It seems to be a common occurrence with these rods for some reason but the heavy tips are usually fine.
    Please ask you mate for me if he wants to sell and if so, how much he wants for them. Its either these or a pair of North Western Carbon Kevlar 2lb TC rods that I've been offered but Id prefer the Giant Rods (I think ).

    I just got an answer:
    "With regards to the rods, I still use them would you belive, although they are part of a fairly large collection now, why do I keep buying, must be tuning into some sort of tackle tart, anyway I don't want to sell, but thanks for thinking of me."
    I doubt you would want mine so maybe the NWs would be a better idea anyway.

    Not to worry Geoff. Looks like I've got this sorted now with a pair of Free Spirit Specialist Advanced, 12ft, 1.75lb tc for a very good price . Thanks for your efforts anyway mate. Appreciate it.
