You can pickup a shimano 6000 xtea for about that on ebay.

Big enough for uk rivers.

Andrew
I have 4 slammers, replaced my trusty old Abu 55s with them, if they are intended for heavy feeder or lead work then I would recommend you get them. Make sure you get the liveliners, makes life a lot easier having no reverse. Excellent clutches and bomb proof!

Andrew, there like rocking horse poo, but if ya can get hold of a couple of shimano 3500b's, you've got exactly what you need.

What Derek said.

If you can't get 3500b's then 6000 OC's or D's will be more up the job.
