There is still halls B1 to B5 I haven’t gone through yet ……… If I stick around tomorrow I will have a look through them.

Well from the replies I read, it begged the question has Flatware found its market niche? I have always liked Odyssey parts and in the past 10 or so years Odyssey have really stepped up the game through inovative design,...
