Okay boys and girls - the new Apex BTS Shed Spools are out and boy they are a sexy piece of kit. On the looks front I am giving them a 10 out of 10. However BTS no longer dives and so I have no idea how these perform. I have sold quite a few but so far I haven't had any feedback at all - I suspect they are adorning various divers coffee tables as talking points !!!

So I have two of each of these reels at knock down prices and in exchange for reviews on my facebook page and perhaps even the odd picture as evidence that these have in fact seen the water (facebook page is BTS Post dump Electrical Element online)

3000m Spool RRP £60 - Reviewers price £43

Just add your own 0000's

The only way to get your mitts on these is to call the shop on (open 11am to 5pm tues to sat) they are not available on the web site. And I do want reviews - no review and I will be round to take my toys back!!!

If this runs well, and we get a bit of interest from BTS there are another dozen or so items of Apex shed kit that we might run some trials on to get some genuine feedback from him and save his wasting space on the other more interesting posts.

Over to you BTS knock yourself out.

All the best

Looks more like a reel to me, I'd like to see the coffee table though.

You could put quite a nice slat wall along that railing

I don't know. Did you wash your hands before O2 cleaning it?

Get on a real sized ship, rather than that toy.

I designed the end of pipeline pressure vessels on this. The biggest structure ever moved by man at over 1.2 million tonnes (http://www.amusingplanet.com/2013/03/troll-platform-largest-object-ever.html). I take your tiny ship and laugh at it.

To give you an idea of scale, count the windows in the stairwell up the side of the accom block. That's an 11 storey building nailed to it with a heli pad on top.

Apologies in advance it's an American show and is about 50% adverts. But you can scroll through them easily enough.

Phaff.

I take your concrete contraption Troll knock up of a east end high rise flat and spit on it.

And give you the grace beauty and elegance of a siren of the seas.

Built to match the exact biblical measurements of Noah’s Ark 300 cubits by 50 cubits wide

With form and function to house 120 beds for fully grown animals, and still have room for a gym, a hospital, a canteen, and enough deck space to raise 200 tons off the sea bed from 3000 meters depth and stick it on deck twice.

Nonsense thats only telephone line with a tad of power in it.

besides it doesnít count, if you never built it.
If were allowed stuff that we didnít design or build then I give you


Toys so rich and new you can only entrust the old guard to handle.
So clean you lot need to wash your hands before entering the room let alone be allowed to touch it
So valued that you canít let some young jock thrapes it around the place and ram it into the first structure he bumps into.

No you have to keep the paintwork shiny like a new car

That yellow stuff on the top of the ROV matches the swarf all over my shop floor at the moment.

I wonder why that is......
