    3k on a rod? Fook me pink.

    Half cost? Are you mad?

    That’s just phase one of the deception. I then say something like “Well think how many miles I get out of them or how much time I’m now going to spend on my bike because of said shiny new purchase... now equate that to pounds per mile, it’s a bargain”

    I’ll then be very subservient for a few days and just waltz straight back in there as though it never happened.

    My wife puts up with a lot of shit really.

    So does mine. I have vespa scooters. They are a money pit.

    3k on a rod though. Bloody hell.

    I’ve always fancied one of those for pootling around on. Can you soup them up a bit so they are a bit quicker.

    Yeah, 3k on a length of what I’d guess is carbon could be seen as a bit excessive like!

    No matter what your hobby is be it a stupid amount of money on wheels, a new rod for fishing or new golf gear you don't need if you get enjoyment from it its worth it.
    Thats how I justify it anyway.

    I remember paying 160quid for 2 pairs of footy boots 20odd year ago - what I spend on golf gear now is similar in the fact that it is spent so that i enjoy my free time

    Motorbikes for me. Costs about 40 quid a month plus petrol to run 2 now they're paid for but the trips, gear and buying extra bits can mount up. Worth every penny though
