  • Float stability:Do we know what we are buying?

    I saw this link on another site, and read it thoroughly.
    Some eye openers here (read both parts and use next page on each page).

    Floats1

    Floats1pt2

    Read it and see what you think.

    I cannot find the Sensas Auchy floats in the U.K. DDS9 looks a bit fragile for our commercials.

    Thick short wire stems and tapered bottom to top end floats with a smooth shoulder anyone.

    Maybe we can get this guy (David Ewing) to a do a hook in the loop comparison with a normal rig.

        Hi moorzy,
        If you are getting pop-up blocked, etc try pressing the control key and the link. Other than that, works fine for me. Anybody else struggling?

          Very interesting !

          Perhaps those who laughed in the Ignesti Z3 will now eat their words ?

            The sensas auchy and DDS9 look like they were designed as out and out silver fish floats for more natural venues. Browning also do a version very similar if not the same which I have been using recently. Used a 3g on saturday in about 16 foot of water and it behaved very well, although there was no wind or tow the shape meant for a cleaner connection on the strike. Tend to lose the fibre bristles in the winter tree reflections though(old age) Re-tied one with a sight sleeve on when I got home and it looks bang on.
            For commercials I've been using the sensas Hubert which is primarily a river pattern, similar in shape to the Rameau Honneger in the article. Thick wire stem, plastic bristle, and a coil instead of a side eye. Landed a few doubles whilst fishing for skimmers and they've come back unscathed(made sure they stayed out of the landing net though) Hope this helps.

              I must admit to struggling lately on this very problem of float stability with pole floats and it is very interesting article. It is a bit annoying though when you can't find the tackle which is reccomended and performed the best.
              Just as a silly idea but does anyone use a waggler type of float on the pole because these are always stable and ride through the waves perfectly.

                TEAM RATTLER, don't be a spoil sport, even if your eyes are going (LOL!), tell us what float pattern the Browning was then.
                Its obvious that we (in the U.K.) do not take pole float stability serious enough unlike our French neighbours seem to do. It makes you wonder how many more bites you would get if your float was sitting perfectly in any weather condition (within reason).
                Jeffc I dont use a waggler type float on the pole.

                  Hi Glenn! Just been into my local shop today and looked it up in the browning catalogue and it's called the 'Europa'. Seems 3g is as big as it goes.

                    Thanks, will have a look next time I am in a tackle shop, 3g is plenty enough for me.

                      Garbolino DDS14 is a similar shape to the sensas auchy and browning europa but only goes up to 1.5g.

                            Thanks for that Bri, I was really after the float catalogue though. My fault for not being specific.

                              They don't do the Auchy, but they stock the Lomme which looks very similar
