Default I'm back at it again.

Howdy all,
I'm not quite new to swinging and singing but I am new to this forum.
I'm back at it after a few years of working on other hobbies, and back with a bigger desire and a new machine in a couple of days.
I sold the old XLT, kept the Garret ace 450 and am looking forward to the learning curve on the Excalibur.
The XL 500 is in limbo pending repair.
I'll be busy for a bit to get familiar with things here, and there's a lot of info to be read up on.
Cheers and happy swinging.
EB.

I use Excals. If you are not diving but wading I recommend getting a long shaft.
