Well if I had taken the purchase price of a ScrapIron out of my wallet it would be a vacuum inside so wouldn't weigh very much at all

No, they are very nice, but with that weight no wonder they all have 200+ on the back!

Are you for real Alice?

Are you actually questioning Ribeye owners experiece in sport and time engaged in changing room banter?

Now that is funny.

Well I've got a Ribeye 5.8 and Yam 100 and this evening it reached 250mph in a force 8.

And there were loads of fit birds in the back.

And I caught a whale. Which was nice.
