Circle One quiver

1972/3 ad
Here are some more classics sent in by Shaun, three '70s Circle Ones made by Jeff Townsley at Exeter. And more interestingly Shaun says these were all Jeff's personal boards. This is a varied quiver, with the oldest board being the classic swallow tail stinger on the right, a fashionable shape in the early to mid 70s. I like the one in the middle , made a bit later with swallow tail , two pairs of hips or flyers and classic spray. Jeff did a lot of the sprays himself.
The twin fin egg is quite an unusual shape, a super wide and squat disk to motor through British slop, and channels to speed it up. Another classic spray. Thanks to Shaun for the photos.
