Nice, so Fisheries sells 14s off the floor now! Just go in, pick your color and off you go? :) Looks great Hendo.

Yes, Brad, it is that easy. You should give it a try. Reasonably priced and a great value. Holds its value on the used market incredibly well too. Just like a potato chip, after you eat the first one you have a hard time stopping yourself from having another and another.
