Okay, let's see if I've got this straight. The Gouf Custom's Heat Whip is
capable of:

>Adhering to surfaces(though I suspect this is by a magnet, not a giant
suction cup).
>
>Holding tons of weight(as in holding on to a thrusting Core Fighter).

>Being heated to armor-slicing temperature by electric current or...

Joan Armatrading song?).

Y'know, the Gouf Custom is quickly becoming my favourite MS.
