I remember seein' them BITD, can't remember manufacturer or owt, though.............couldn't see then how they would be that much lighter than tubular ends, and certainly less comfy.

Still, they're interestin', and a classic example of solving a problem that never existed!

Dont say that :shock:
I couldnt be that lucky

I emailed the seller to ask their history,but the reply i got back seemed he was all flustered,he couldnt understand why i wanted info after the auction had finished
I put him straight as a collector so hopefully he will come through with the info

Yeah I saw them on ebay too.

I like the look for them. They are certainly different to say the least.

Not sure how comfortable they would be on the old hands etc
