Hybrid wrong national size

If ordering for BS National, ensure you don't order the Hybrid version by mistake as you will need to get the scissors out and trim them down slightly, as they are a little larger. Having said that though they are 30% cheaper and trimming off the surplus length is not a difficult job. Otherwise everything else was delivered quickly and in good order.
