Ill health / mental health - may have been suffering for a while and just had to stop. We all know how hard the man worked and the masterpieces he produced.

It was obvious that something was very wrong with him. Heís not a young man.

I wish him all the best.

This has also come up on the BCSG forum recently. John Carver has spoken to Graeme, and due to 'personal reasons', Dymag are no longer currently trading, although this may change in the future.

Forgive me for chelping out the obvious but instead of repeated attempts of failed and seemingly futile digital electronic methods to communicate with the party in question maybe go old skool by way of a vehicle ride to the regestrated business address upon then personally in physical form make any enquiries relevant, although obviously a tactic of extreme discomfort these days, worth a long shot surely.

FWIW I've pair of custom YAC 9ft stalkers since they came out and yes, they are lovely rods, however I do find that being 3 piece they're a bit of a faff to put up/pack down whilst "set up" if that makes sense? Very easy to get in a bit of a mess lol.
I can definitely see the attraction in the scope type rod format being effectively a 2 piece.
I lug them around in a Dymag holdall which is a cracking bit of kit. It was the only option for short rods available at the time IIRC apart from the little YAC bag thing.

And the 2lb 11ft Gti's fantastic short to mid range carp rods......didn't know they existed until I spoke to Roger Hurst and he made me up a pair

He sells a lot of them as flood water Barbel rods so they've got a bit of backbone to them as well as a fantastic through action for close range work

Iíve built myself a barbel stalker last year, one of the thinnest blanks Iíve seen, had some mega big fish fights on them, I donít know where the power comes from but they certainly have it!

As a train driver I should bring one to work if the engine fails.

You should try one with 9 little guides starting at 30. You could pull a train with it
I want to get hold of their 1.75 barbel stalker, never handled one so reluctant to gamble on a pair but would be interested in playing with some build configurations on them

Sounds nice 👍

Never used a Ballista in all honesty. One of my mates who's done some rod building in his time is a big fan of the Ballista blank kept telling me to get hold of a set if I fancied some nice playing rods. Maybe one day 🙂
