it look like a Leon Paul Body wire with a solid German/PBT/chinese solid three pin plug. I wouldn't use them, but I am biased. Barry Paul

They look like the ones I saw in America.
Not really sure.

Bought one, used one, and discarded one.....


It was a German model that was made up using LP bayonet plugs just to provide a local source.

They were OK but the wire was a lot thicker and a struggle to put into the socket if you repaired one.....

You see people never take my advise in buying first hand from a company

Please note that I may be completely wrong.

Quite likely - I bought a bag which certainly WAS a Merlin from him...

I think it was just a figure of speech

I thought wingnut was Barry Paul by another name. Does this mean that wingnut is dipping in to his own retirement fund to buy beer, or am I confused.

Also the use of the word 'one' and contractions on that page is odd.eg. "One can c that"

Interesting......can we define "fiddly" in this context? Presumably it fits a standard LP bayonet okay?
