Change the length of the stem if it doesn't feel well balanced otherwise you arms will hurt like hell after several hours. ::g

How did you get on with the 17" coil Simon?

I had mine for a while, but hitting a heavily searched field at the weekend and am going to give it a whirl I think.. If I dont get anything with the11" coil..
Warm regards
