The 'Whopper Stopper made last winter, I've just got around to finishing this one off.
Used the taper from 'Drop me a line' but single rather than double built.

Very classy Pete - Love the decals.

I have some decals and a logo designed ready for my next build too.

How does the action of the single built Whopper Stopper compare to a SU MKIV?

Cheers
Steve

Hi Steve. Thought I'd try some decals for a change but I must admit I prefer to see a nice hand written inscription. My handwriting is not the neatest unfortunately especially around the blank. Must keep up the handwriting practice.

I've never handled a stepped up MK IV so don't know how they compare in the hand. I can only say I was pleasantly surprised how the WS feels even though it weighs 14.5 ounces. Could be a long wait before it's tested on a carp of the size it's designed for :Hahaha:

That's a superb looking rod Pete. Pop down to Brooklands, I've heard there are some big carp
being caught.

Thanks chaps, much appreciated.

Yes, I've seen those big carp coming out of Brooklands recently John. Must be 50 years since I first fished down there.
I had a more peaceful little Sussex lake in mind when I made it :Wink:
