Lots of mirrors though from the pics m8. You must be lovin it.

LOL..
:lol::clap::muttley:

powermesh x spinning rods aren't here. The standard powermesh spinning rods that have been in Europe for a while now are, but they're not great. I'm sure the uk powermesh will be better. On the whole, ANY daiwa rod over about £60 seems having! Cormoran the same.

My wake up to newer Daiwa stuff came after multiple test sessions of Liam's Infeet HRF. That is a seriously great rod.
I've just had another Daiwa through the door in the E-GEE. This is a bit more specialist being an Eging (IKA) rod but you know what...

I went for a walk with it over the low today and chucked some plugs. WOW, what a great action.

If that is any indication of what to expect higher up, I'm going to buy that Morethan 'shooting star'.

Just seen Mike Kennard's new Diawa LRF rod, very impressive bit of kit.

Lovely isn't it! When I've got my Finezza we'll all have to meet up and sort this stuff out!

Brilliant show overall. Definitely recommend it to everybody out there who has an interest in tackle. It's a reasonably expensive trip, even if you're careful with your spending, but well worth it. Next year I'll make a week of it, going over on the ferry to Roscoff and do a bot of a tour around Brittany before ending up in Nantes. Totally love France.

What a great weekend it was, and it was most enjoyable to see both some new and the more familiar faces :):):)

It was also great to able to see some of the new items such as the 2010 Daiwa Certate in real life :jump::jump:

Good weekend, good to put names to faces, meeting people I have only chatted to online and see the usual suspects again!

Highlights for me; meeting some good french contacts, raw steak, Mike's random weird snoring, Steve L's late night emergency wine, Nathan lovestruck, Yannick's present presentation, shooting the breeze about all manner of things!

17 of us in total - how many next year? ...

There was in fact over 20 brits that I spoke to, there were some lads over from Bella Vista, Jersey (that didnt travel with us) and of course Rolf who appeared out of no where and arrived for breakfast. I really hope there are more of us next year, its so cool to a british crowd there.
