just a low content post & mostly saying hi.
but also i am thrilled b/c i was able to find someone nice enough to go through the somewhat tedious process of figuring out how to send one of these from north america to germany - thanks again @youknowwhoyouare
i think it will embark on its journey soon enough & there is is some waiting & reading to do in this thread in the meantime.
i know batteries must have been discussed ad nauseam so i hardly dare ask. i have an older vct6 from the tm lying aorund (should work yes?), but will buy a fresh one to mark new beginnings, my local battery store carries sony vtc5a, lg hg2, & samsung 25r. the sony vtc5a is specifically named on the firewood website, so i guess this is the one i should go with (?).
Sony are great, VTC6 is what I use most with mine, but also LG HG2, VTC5A will be good too... Samsung wrapping could be a little thick, be careful inserting and removing the batteries at first, to protect the wrapping, press them against the spring to make it easier to remove and insert them.
i will also receive the wpa adapter. not really a water user (so far), but i would like to get a j-hook at some point i think. the o'connel inception looks really nice, but does anyone know of a good EU source for all things glass?
Yeah check out that thread, a lot of other options for European folks, you may want to get a customized version of the TM hooks from France actually, a nice male jointed L hook would be awesome with the WPA...
Glad you were able to find someone who can help hook you up with this little beast!
