    Another piece of gear ill probably not be able to improve upon ( maybe if it were a bigger size , it would have been the ultimate )
    Anyhow , it is what it is :)

    P.s the photos were taken by the seller i have not got round to taking any yet .

    I dont find it !!! It finds me !! :D
    Seriously though , NOS or virtually unworn is an obsession of mine .
    This stuff isnt getting any cheaper , and what the prices are for real "salty" items this one wasnt off the scale price wise .

    I’ve often rationalized the same thought when buying a NOS item. Basically “bit the bullet” and pay the price because once it goes into someone’s collection it will probably never come out again in my lifetime.
    Second: If you buy a Vintage NOS item of quality it will always return your purchase price when it’s sold to the next collector.
