The 12'6^ dream maker intrigue should be renamed smile maker as it puts a big grin on my face everytime i pick it up whether fish attached or not!
You were definitely right though about Harrison be the best available at the time and made in UK.,I bought 12 ft 2.75lb ballista blanks (available funds always meant I could only afford blanks) and they served me well for the best part of 20years,never felt the need to upgrade but the dream maker was just another level

I still have a NW 12' carbon 2 & a 1.75 that I built from blanks in 1984/5. The rods were sold like this. I also have two Hutchinson Spirolite Horizons. These were carbon/kevlar, 12' 2.5 tc. Great design with a stiff butt and compound tip. I built them for a bloke in 1985 who didn't get on with them so I bought them back. Gorgeous rods. In the garage I also have a Tricast 13' 3lb MUR. Ridiculously lightweight rod but rather nice. This is also mid 80's.

The memories.

The insight barbel rods were lovely rods. I had the rb version of them many years ago as well.

Iím currently using two 12ft. 2 3/4 dream maker enigma. Bought them new about 2002. Fantastic through action rod. I bought them in Belgium. They were very popular at that time. I was very lucky they were my first carp rods.

The original dream maker you have along with the leslies of luton insights are probably two of the best carp rods i have ever seen and used.

Yes the original dream maker mk 1 was built on a brown harrison blank ,
They were designed and mostly if not all built by alastair bond.
If you have some of them i will buy them off you.
