    At 50 quid a reel... this is one of the few times I don't care.

    The performance drop was so sudden, though - it was almost funny!

    It was extraordinary - finished one session banging comets, started the next as a damp squib!

    Fresh 30/31... back to putting holes in people.

    Maybe my 4-week rotation needs to come down to 3... my poor wallet!

    It may end up being cheaper to use bg80

    Am I OCD enough to sit down and work it out...?

    Nah - BG80 loses more tension over the first few hours. One reel gives 20+ jobs, so at one every three weeks, that's more than a year. (Barring breakages, of course, but I never break. Ever.)

    3 weeks is what I was getting out of VS800 before I went back to VS850 which is 2 weeks tops.

    And you've got to actually get the VS850 in at 30+ (which, these days, isn't exactly a done deal!).
