Just bought a lovely Merlin XLM and this morning someone has offered me a DeKerf Elysium...no full details of the DK yet...hope it's too big.
But what would you have...DK or Merlin?

XLM is timeless quality, the DK is less understated/boring
Think I would give the DK a shot myself, just to be a litle different, DK has great after sales too.
Let me know if it's too big for you :wink:

Merlin.

Unless you've had one before.

Is it to be a ridden keeper or an investment?

Phew...panic over. His mate had his facts wrong. It's a full 853 SST frame in pewter, not Ti. Still nice though.
