@Total I never walk around that way, but your right mate someone else could. I have been toying with the idea of using an old Preston Ripple Bar to sit way under where the small V roller is to rest sections on, so that they to hand ready to add on.

Thank you very much.
I like the idea of the v rollers as a start on bank sticks until I can afford a box.

Seeing pictures of people's setup will be invaluable.
👍😁😁
@Catzeyes. Depending on where you live, you can have a 6 drawer Boss box, with footplate and wheel kit, it alsi has a half full width drawer unit, Its in great condition, Maybe @Peter could post a pic of the one he had,I do not want any money for it if you can make use of it, I am based both in Oxford and Warrington,

hi,i use a clever claw and a recliner chair so I don't have backache anymore and I can fish at over 8m, the chair has all the attachments that you will ever need.

I thought I'd take a picture of my setup to show you. :) Because of my disabled leg, I've never been able to run a pole across both legs for support so for years i've used a front roller. It used to be with a pups system but now I have the Octbox specially made for disabled anglers (not really) it's even easier :) Because of old age, wear and tear in the shoulder tendons and arthritis in the wrists and gout damaged elbows I now also use a roller for both margin swims. I can fish comfortably at 13mtrs with one hand :D

I have small v rollers but the shape of those are better than my straight rollers.

Hi Tinca, those rollers are from Octbox and are £18.50 each. They have ball bearings so they don't bind up like other rollers when you ship out to 16mtrs. I've had them for 2 years now and still going strong unlike me :)
