Hello to all, I ask you if any of you know these two blanks: Lamiglas GP1022H MHX SA-1025 I know the Lamiglas one very well, analyzing the data they seem very similar. I'm looking for a more powerful blank than the GP1022H but not as powerful as the Lamiglas GP1022X, a cross between the two. From my practical experience I found the MHX blanks to be more powerful than stated, for this reaso

Hi Tom sorry for the delay with which I answer. I understand your motivations unfortunately I think I will have to abandon the idea of completing my collection of your wonderful magazine. The retailer to whom I refer is obviously Joaquim Louriero of Cork4Us, just yesterday at the time of my renewal request he told me that he is considering whether or not to follow as he has too few subscripti

Hi guys, I have all the magazines starting from the number one. Unfortunately I do not know how I lost the # 18-6. Some of you may have a copy to buy? I ask you why Tom does not carry out International shipments and the European retailers, where I normally buy my magazines, can not get it. Regards

Hello, I am installing a metal spinning reel seat on heavy saltwater graphite rod. I'd like to install it without errors, which is the best way to do it ? There is a special glue for it ? Normally I made graphite thicknesses to be inserted between the blank and the reel seat, making the rough parts, clean with alcohol and then glueing to everything with the U40 Rod Bond. Is the right way? Is it
