I really like it. I had a Proflex back in 1997 (albeit the bottom of the range model - an Attack I think?).

Have a look at the Muddy Fox build i'm playing with (in my sig) and it's not far off the condition of the Fox I purchased. But always feels good when they scrub up nicely (which this will :D ).

Have fun.

I'm going to stick it in my mums garage out the way just now and sort out the stuff I've already got on the go , then I'll decide what to do with it.

At least I saved it cause I suspect it would have gone to the dump....
