Is it the purple blank with green Fuji's ? if so, nice rods but £111 is way overpriced for a model that must be around 15/20 years old.

Just wish people wouldn't leave them in the back of sheds. I have 3 Abu/Abu Garcia rods, and they are used regularly as they are a pleasure to use. Can even cast into the East Yorks wind...

I don't think anglers know how good they are. A bit short and heavy by todays standards but a revelation when they first came out.

484 was the real daddy back then brought us kicking and screaming into the 21st century from mostly old broom handles it was something that could cast and show bites and still holds it's head high.
