Old school solar sod pod. I do use it occasionally if I need to use 2 pods so I'll hang on to it.
Heavy but well made.

I was tidying the garage a week ago and was just about to chuck these in the recycling bin, but then I thought - worth a punt on eBay? 🤔

I was selling brand new (proper old school) bottle tops a few years ago for over £20 a set of three. Bidding started at 99p.

This collecting lark has got a bit out of hand IMHO. No way is a Solar baiting needle worth £50.

The daft bit is, certain bits sell well, others barely scrape even. Now, if you want the holy grails, Nutrabaits smiley bobbins (£100+ a pop), ECHO bobbins, Nite Glow bobbins(£60 a pop) needle systems are all the big money earners......
