    Also, u seem to have the clue down wrong; the answer to that is Off Kilter

    Thanks Dave Diamond. I had Off Centre ( but Kilt I just get)
    Allotropes I would never have gotten. Guys is Tropes.
    Answer bank is great. I can usually get have of the ST cryptic without help, but have only ever finished it four or five times in 15 years.
