The UKWill yardsale is underway, and while I hate to see this go, it has to go to make way for other rod obsessions - This is a brand new 1409 cast for literally 5 hours of total fishing time (without incident!!). Great way to get a new T&T at a significant reduction. Dammit. I can't actually justify having it just to aaah over occasionally however. So feel free to do just that or better yet actually fish it. It will cast practically every line you have in your cupboard about as far as is humanly possible... The case travelled with me on a trout trip to carry a couple of rods and received the usual scuffing in the plane, but that's just a means to pretend your'e actually "just buying an old second hand rod, Dear".
