An advertisement that was run a lot.  The AA “D” completes the gals.

Nothing like completing the set - well done! Doesn't it seem like you needs the mens models now too?

Thanks Geoff.  That would be nice wouldn't it!  But they are so pricey I think I will stick to the ladies.  I did pay mens prices for this one but it was serviced and I really wanted to complete this set.  See why I can't start another lol

Thank you Bob!  I am happy with what I have been able to find and would be ok if that was it.  But I do like the AA "HH" and "L" and would be happy to have either of those come along.
