I am wondering if any of you remember why the UFO was so named...that info and so much more seems to have left the premises...of my mind...

thanks Kev...I should have been more specific...it sure is hard to believe someone that has been in the game for 10 or 15 years can't answer this...but, I think the reason for the name is as you stated...

Merry Christmas boys and girls

Hey all, if you were asking about the 24x12" Mono we manufacture...

UFO : this was named by our USA distributor, Doc, who when he took it out for the first time found it to be an 'Unbelievable F#*^king Orangething'. I think that is how it went. After that we mentioned it to a few prospectors - who agreed and the name stuck! I will get him to confirm the story.

Hope this clarifies things,
Trevor

thanks Trev, now it starts to come back...and i remember in 2000 on my first Oz trip, Peter was testing a huge and wierd black coil...a proto type...it was amazing the species that he found with it...i ordered one as soon as it was available...they were and are still a great coil.
