    Greys GR70 14ft 6in 6-piece #9 travel rod

    Anyone have one of these or tried it? Hoping it's a genuine #9, so good with (say) a Rio AFS 9/10. Limited experience of Greys travel rods - I've had 2, the 13ft Missionary (love it) and the 15ft Missionary (cr*p!). Suspect the GR70 will be a bit faster than either, but I want it for shooting...

    Orvis reels - excellent service

    I have a number of Orvis Mirage reels that I bought in the US a few years ago. Very good reels which have always served me well. A couple of weeks ago one started to sound a bit strange indicating that a bearing was on the way out. As the reel is fully sealed and I couldn't investigate further...
