Lovely shaped antler that is, not sure about that black square lastic, I bought some recently for old times sake and was amazed how bad it was, may be different stuff but if it does turn out to be bad recon a bit of orange dub dub would be nice  on that, as mr Wilkes said let us no how it goes 👍👍

Constrictor knot is how i tie tubes or sqaure but tbh I sometimes pull out an old catty for a laugh but nothing touches some of the bands about these days.

I have been having a do with the existing bands and am getting better but as you say I think the 9.5s would suit some different bands, Greyman kindly offered to band it up with some 1745 tubes, I’ve just to send it over,  Top respect to the man he’s a gent
