    Hiking/walking boots

    Scarpa Terra GTX for me. Had mine 8 plus years and they’ve just about had it. I’ve been so happy with them think I’ll just buy the same again

    Wanted Drennan series 7 1.25 Avon/ quiver

    Yeah must admit I was shocked that they still had the series 7 spares, wish I’d looked into it 2 years ago when I broke them!

    Hi Dave just to let you know my local tackle shop has ordered me 2 top Avon sections for my series 7. They have a small amount of them left so give it a go.

    I’m suprised about that David but will definitely give it a try, thanks! How much did they charge for a tip section?

    Roving single rod sleeve anyone??

    Well Impressed it’s actually perfect and love how compact it is.. actually made for smaller sized reels and rings. Saves having a big bulky carp sleeve… nice one Paul!

    Wanted Drennan series 7 1.25 Avon/ quiver

    Haha to be fair I don’t think the quality was amazing on the series 7s I’ve also got a pair of the much older super specialist duos which have had much more use and no broken tips … still, keeping an eye out

    Hi Stephen unfortunately not, the series 7 rods have been discontinued for quite a while now.

    Roving single rod sleeve anyone??

    Thanks for the recommendation Paul, I’ve ordered one, so will see what it’s like later this week but sounding very promising

    That looks like it could be the one!! Thanks Paul. Even got a little zip pocket to chuck a few leads in!

    Roving single rod sleeve anyone??

    Does any tackle company do a single rod sleeve that holds a 5000 size reel not big pit size. With a pocket or 2 for bank sticks and net handle. Want a sleeve for protection due to brambles etc. small river one rod fishing but with a bit of added protection?

    History of the older Drennan Avon rods

    Ah thanks for the info Neil… looks like both rods could have been released around the same time. My initial thoughts were it being a fair bit older than that. Cheers for clearing that up.
