    im sure Prawn got his from a group buy on seat cupra net??

    Bill/tuffty fitted then for/with him so i doubt they would have done it if it wasnt top quality.

    Personally, i dont need rods right now but when i decide to up my power in the future i'll probably buy these...

    or

    you could wait to see how welly gets on with his chinees rods. think they were 250ish

    if the rods can withstand his abuse them im sure they will be fine. although they arent rifle drilled afaik

    Lots of the Seat boys run these rods, not heard any bad words about them on SSS or SCN.

    Just to clarify where is says SSS price SSS is a secret club for Seats ;)

    Secrat Seat Sociaty. It's not that Secrat any more, there's a forum and FB page all welcome!
    The only issue I've heard of is that alot of people paid for these kit months ago and due to supply issues they still have not got there kits...

    I have the above kit. It's all good gear, but the delivery times can be sketchy so I'd avoid it if you're in a hurry.

    Given the choice I'd still put my business Bills way and get from him, but I got the above kit a bit cheaper than that through a deal at the time, and purchased at a time when funds were tight.

    I also run these rods. Great kit but shocking delivery times sadly.

    as said........... Confirm ACTUAL delivery times before parting with your ££
    some folks have waited months for their goods after sending £
