  1. Now they’re doing Tooheys in the white cans. Reminds me of old Rex.
  2. Aussies already compete in the world championships for hide and seek, that could be fun. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-09-28/nascondino-why-are-these-grown-ups-playing-hide-and-seek/8996342
  3. Haha, I didn’t get it at first.
  4. I spoke to my rod builder, he suggested the SU series I’ve taken out the sand spike and put the blank on the best scales I have, it comes up around 440g depending how I place it. Calling it SU7144FT. The butt dimension is spot on, the tip is about 1/3 of a mm thicker, the blank is overall 1 cm longer than 366. Slight variations
  5. Limited release from Carlton.
  6. It’s 12ft, butt is 28mm and the tip is 3.5mm. The walls of the blank are close to 1.5mm Compared to my Pacific Composites and Snyder Mag Surf both 7 wrap the action is faster and it’s heavier. I don’t have any other to compare it to. Here are model charts from Butterworth, it’s not on there, but it does have the original Butterworth decal.
  7. Hi Raiders, I picked up a vintage Butterworth beach rod when I was up the coast. I stripped the guides and removed the reel seat hoping to get a model number all I found was 0.1 on the blank and the rear wooden grip. It doesn’t match any models on the Butterworth catalogue. It’s pretty stiff I think it could be an 8 or 9144, any thoughts?

    Multi Tool ??

    I remember my Mum bought this one for my Grandad back in the 70s
  9. I’m at little Manly today “working “. I’ve never seen the water so clear and fish everywhere. That shadow is a Blue Groper I’d say just under 1m long
  10. Thanks for the replies and the advice. I’m really happy with the result, and it’s a bit of fun. Just can’t rush the process.
  11. All done. A couple of before and after pics.
  12. That’s right Gordon, just heard it on the news this morning.
  13. Hi Raiders, Just in case you haven’t heard, the NSW State Government are providing $100 vouchers that can be recouped in a variety of places. It ends at the end of June. I just booked a Whale Watch and the company doubled the value of the voucher, so 2 people for $98.
