Hi Chris , I’ve seen the pair on eBay , a bit far to collect right now and also a little rich
They've been getting a steadily richer for some time now. The days of getting them for about £25 a pop are largely gone. Circa £50 each, perhaps a little more if in exceptional condition, seems to be more likely these days. The original Powermesh Avons and Powermesh Carp rods (mostly 2.5lb TC) are two of the multitude that I tend to keep tabs on. I've got quite enough so won't be buying more. I just like to see how they do.
