    • Brian We classical guitarists might know them well, but they are not exactly household names outside of our little classical guitar bubble.

      Eric Phillips Sounds eminently sensible to me, even for those who don't use nails. Those absurdly heavy bowling balls, hurtling without warning out of the return mechanism, are a bloody menace!

      Eric Phillips True, it should be possible to carry at least two, maybe even a third if there's a case strap available. It's a pity about the dog, of course, but one has to be sensible - in an emergency, there's no room for sentimentality ...
