Right click on the image and see if it tells you how large it is, my uncles ipad turns photos into tif files and some of those can be massive files.

Hope this helps

Hopefully loading photos will work this time!
Here is the chapman 500 after refurb , as you can see it has intermediate whippings and also a replacement decal as the old one was flaked.
I've taken the rod out a couple of times and have been enjoying using it and have caught some small commons and a bream. Cane rods definitely bend differently to modern ones I have noticed!
I've made a few of my own floats and have been using them as well.

That's a lovely looking rod Matt. The intermediates certainly add something to the rod. I might have to think about putting some on mine!

Welcome Matt, I'm on the pit as well and have been following this with interest over there.

I did wonder if it was the same mercman on here as on the pit!
Cheers,
