Re: Lightning Strikes and The Faraday Cage

Just checked my electrical regs book and there's nothing in there that covers this, its covered by BS EN 60092-507, which obviously doesn't apply unless you're in Britain. I'm with James, I'd check into what regulations apply for the area you're in. Do the people building your boat have any info on ...

Re: Being fit

Haven't been in a gym for quite a few years now, but when I was last into it I followed the 18/6 intermittent fasting method that Thomas mentions. Work at the time meant I could train early in the morning on an empty stomach. Despite everyone at the gym telling me I was crazy, I had the best results...

Re: Snowbee prestige XS line (treatment)

Looking at the Sportfish website on the wayback machine. The SA VPT line in 2013 was £59.99, current price is £79.99 Inflation calculator works it out at £66.42. I might be being naive here but what's changed during the last 6 years to make that line increase nearly £14 more than it should have done...

Re: Snowbee prestige XS line (treatment)

So... If materials are getting cheaper, and manufacturing technology is getting smarter, and China can bang out a line for $5... why are prices for standard name lines (SA, Rio, Cortland) in the catalogues and on the shelves approaching $100? The "average" recent models in the shop is now around $8...

Re: Tackle recommendations for the ST27 and salmon 55g

Saw that one too James but as it wasn't the old model I didn't want to buy it to find its crap. What exactly are we looking for anyway with the 55g rod. Stiffness or something with a bit of give? I have absolutely no clue on double handed stuff (plus a lot of other things :D )
