I used to have the 125 and I'm pretty sure I remember it had the length of 229 printed on it as well. I assumed the final model ended up 2cm longer than the 105.

yeah, i'm with mark...from what you say, you want to cut the tail piece by 20cm, but all that will do is give you a boom of 200-260 instead of 200-280

It's frustrating because the picosearch shows the threads, but you just can't open them. I'm surprised a long term database could not have been created.

Searching Older Forum Posts

Hi team

I know this has been covered, but previous "work arounds" to view pre-2006 forum posts no longer seem to work.

How can I view posts prior to August 2006?

regards,

Rod
