    You're kidding, right? Must be an April Fool's, since the human race will probably have killed off the Earth by then.

    Re: Spring tips

    Some spring tips were adjustable; pushing the tip further into the spring stiffened the action. I still have a few of the Drennan ones, but they ain't been out of the box since the old king died. If...

    I lost touch with Jez some years ago, which is a shame - he's a great bloke and brilliant at what he does. I have one of his pre-amps and an MF tube buffer stage that need attention if he ever...

    The tube feeding #4 is blocked-off, John. #7 is holed, so will never fill. #3 is the only one that can be filled.

    This is a newer version of the Nash Bait Mate - I have the older one, which is a nice handy size and seems pretty hard-wearing.
