Maybe a longtime ago :Chuckle:
It's strange on the list posted the test curve of the Avon traditional is lighter than the Kennet perfection which surprises me.

Interesting that they listed a 9' MkIV Carp. I wonder if they adjusted the taper through the whole length of the rod. There was a stunning Olivers' MKV Avon sold recently, it made circa £360, I expected it to top £500.
