    For Sale Plano Jumbo Airliner, rolling rod case.

    Agreed... I know the one important thing I did was put in as much rail time and diversity as possible....switching things around. I'd read a ton about using the PL68s at the Bank....during grey light....so I did that as much as I could. Maybe next year...
