Thanks digs.

A 20 incher might be slightly overkill for most of my purposes. I have an 18inch on loan from another member, but it hasn't had much use yet due to size.

I am considering a 14x9 Evo that I have found second hand. Seems like a more practical walk around size. Would probably like a 17x11 as this might compliment the Sadie better (seems I am in Rocky/grassy/leafy areas mostly and concerned the Sadie spends too much time elevated above the soil for it's shallow depth to be practical?).

I probably should stick with what I've got until I actually start finding gold.... Fear of missing out seems to be a big factor in this hobby ?

Sorry Nug i thought for some reason you were after a 18” which is why i was mentioning the 20”

The 17”x 13” was one i was considering. At this stage though i think ill will go with the likes of the NF 15” Evo.

Howard will have a stall at the Laanecorie Bash this coming weekend.

You will have the opportunity to try out the PL2 over test ground.

Here are the two types of Handles.
The new configuration is the one closest.

Is the ribbon cable from the under cuff control box now straight into the shaft? Looks good.

Doug will have you hanged, drawn & quartered for sharing that pic here lol Thanks

Yep, cable runs internally.

This is now a third option avail.

“Howard has introduced to the world a new PL2 model variant. This appeared for the very first time at the ‘bash’ at the weekend.
This one uses the whites tower handle, which for the first time has allowed the front control box wiring to be routed fully within the handle.
The end result is a very clean looking, very well balanced QED that was very well received by people at the ‘bash”

Thanks Tath? for the new pic.
For me that's another great improvement there - getting the ribbon cable right out of any possible harms way.
thumbsup Nice work again from Howard + team.
