Don't tell him that Alec as you won't hear the last of it. He's a grand bloke. Cheers Mark for the bag and apologies again for the lack of hospitality. It will be best in the long run.

I am delighted with the progress chaps. I will go and see my tackle shop pal tomorrow, mark at Keswalls, and try and have a peek at his old tackle dealers books. He only took Keswalls over circa 2009 so maybe too late. It's great to be narrowing the search now. I am also going to try his bundle of quiver tips. On the feeder there is what I think is a 1oz and maybe a 3. I feel it needs something in the middle. . 32p I think diam.

The two tips with the rod were unmarked so I was guessing a 1 and a 3. Got 2 x 2oz which fit perfectly. The owner showed me how to test tc of matching twin tips( again unmarked) and I was using the same method to test the 2 tips I had but it didn't work. Had I held the tip ends of course it did. Doh! Its a good job I don't broadcast my stupidity for everyone to hear! Thanks for your contribution guys. I need now to find out where the previous owners were of Ultimate tackle to see who actually made the rods for them. Money is still on Shakespeare but I will keep looking.

Confirm I got a 2oz to fit. Used it today and was very impressed. Didnt catch as the weather turned nasty, despite no mention in local forecasts. I waited til the wind died down as indeed it did ,as predicted, but no mention of heavy rain! Oh well,. there's always another day!
