    Nooooooo

    I have mailed him many times and he has outwardly said that he will not sell them for less than £300. They cost him £500 apparently, so we know he is fibbing somewhere along the line.

    ARP don't make rods, they are an unknown brand with arp bolts.

    He doesn't know what rifle drilled rods are, but these aren't.

    Personally I see an eBay case waiting to happen.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    I was thinking "Thankyou for the heads up mate " would be apt in this case.

    P.s. I know you're joking fella.

    Non RD will last. RD preferable but its better having forged rods than not having them.
