    I have one and use it quite often onetip that you will need to know is that when shoting a float up in say a coke bottle with the top cut off as i do remember that the surface area of water is less than where you will be fishing and the water tension is greater therefore more shot will be required in the coke bottle than say the canal resulting in over shoting one easy way to overcome this is to put a drop of washing up liquid in the water and this wil reduce the surface tension givig you more accuracy

        Why not use a 2 gallon bucket, you will find that the shotting works out perfectly on all but wire bristled floats.

            Then you know that they often need an adjustment to suit the conditions on the day.

              Your absolutly right but most of my adjustments can be made with different amounts of bristle grease and not adding or removing shot

                      These gadgets are top ...BUT ...like has been mentioned why not just use a bucket?
                      In my shed i just have a cut down coke bottle , i thread my float on the line secure it with 3 short pieces of silicone tubing and squeeze on the shot for the style of float im using .
                      When its more or less right i move the float and shot up the line a foot or so to get past where a squeezed my shot on and cut the damaged length off.
                      Please God...let me win the lottery:rolleyes:

                          I bought a glass vase in Poundland Which is about 5" in dia. x 14/15" deep.
                          Ideal for shotting my floats. I put the float with its rubbers in the groove and tighten it up. I put it in the water and add shot until the float is sitting right.
                          I then remove it, put the shot one side and then make up my pole rig!
