Dear Mr Glint,

Bravo - rarely have I encountered such perceptive self-awareness. Your own words "traditional mould" very neatly encapsulate your compositional preferences (smiley thing)

Anyway, whilst the methods are always going to be a millstone in such a composition, Don's new effort certainly is a very nice arrangement.  It shares an appealing feature with Rob Lee's palindromic 12-spliced masterpiece in that every call affects three numerically consecutive bells (a good way to link run courses).  Don's composition also includes all 7 leads of the plain course.

5152 Spliced Surprise Major (8m)
  2345678  Superlative
  5738264  Cambridge
- 7864523  Bristol
  6758342  Bristol
- 5678342  Pudsey
  8462537  Pudsey
- 4237856  Cambridge
  7526483  Superlative
  6853742  Cambridge

  5748623  London
- 6457382  Lincolnshire
  7842635  Rutland
  4768523  Superlative
- 7823456

Now all that's needed for improvement is a simple rearrangement where all the mega-tittums leads of Superlative occur in the same part...
