    Posted: 10 May 2014 at 9:21am
Went down to a local junk shop I know produces and found this, mint condition, I've since added new hardware.
Interestingly, I found his 4" brother two months ago in the same place. I know Barry has a few and Wadey also, but you don't see too many poppers. On reading through May 1986 article in TBF, Mick Elliot on being interviewed stated he only produced poppers on request, not as a line of his regular output.
Could this be why I've found two, exactly same finish, different length in the N.T.?
Anyone else have any poppers? Be nice to get feedback.
Seaweed.

For a bloke that stated he didn't make many poppers, there sure are plenty surfacing. Maybe he went mad post that 1986 article.

Here's another Seaweed.
In the same colours as one of my Mackerel Maulers.

Cheers,
