Walker Wobbler

Recommended Posts

My Stainless steel version weighs slightly heavier than the Walker wobbler.

think as close as I can guess about 25 grams. the Walker is 20 grams without hardware.

As soon as I can learn how to engrave a bit better I will engrave a couple with " Waza Wobblers " and drop them off to Waza for his collection.

Forgot I had these scales.

Awesome thanks for that i know that the jarvis walker wobbler's only come in one weight and size, would be good to see how they perform or "swim" against each other, you might be onto something if they are heavier, being heavier could change so many variables, casting length, swimming weight, the way it swims in the water, better for choppier conditions etc.

Top work on these @frankS

OK Here is my version of the "  WAZA WOBBLER " Stainless and alloy, stainless are approx. 25 grams and alloy a lot lighter I would guess at about 8 grams so 25 gram size but 8 grams weight. this is undressed weight so split rings and hooks would make them that much heavier.

Please excuse the poor engraving, very hard to engrave Stainless steel. I will have a go at acid etching which should look a whole lot better.

PS Camera distortion make them look different sizes, just camera angle.

Excuse the engraving?? They look great to me!! What a good idea to have 2 weights in same size Inventing/making is a great talent to have and you Frank are highly skilled at both. Thanks for calling them waza wobblers too, cheered me up greatly!

Regards Waza
