    But your reasoning has a fatal flaw; it overlooks the fact that to comprehend it requires that one rub a few brain cells against each other. The heat thus generated produces the light that illuminates the fact, but alas, not everybody has the resource required to fuel the process --SG

    They also have some interesting things to use for tube flies and I get all my color permanent markers there
    I will take 2 or 3 pieces as soon as I go back to Stellenbosch. Been searching for Balsa for quite some time now and used surfboard foam previously but it's a bit messy and also quite soft which dents very easily. But as Denton mentioned just add epoxy and VoilĂ*!
