I have a David Brown competition plough, bought it at a farm sale about 10 years ago, it has not been used more than 4 times, the chap it belonged to bought it new in about 1964 but unfortunateley for him he himself was ploughed under not long after and it had since stood in a shed, his lining-up poles were still tied to it with sisal baler cord but were virtually reduced to powder by the woodworm. I'll take a series of photos of it sometime so all can see what a real one looks like.

Agree there Cambs. Quick entry top links are generally not allowed nor are furrow presses and weights that have been added. If anyone cares to read the National Society of Ploughmen rule book it states quite clearly that any additional parts fitted to a plough used in matches and competitions other than such parts as fitted by the manufacturer specificly for the plough are not allowed and anyone using non-genuine fitments will be disqualified. If you can't plough with a standard plough to an acceptable level then you're certainly not going to do any better with any added aids and gizmos.
