    Thread float on line, tie a 3 inch loop, lassoo a small snap swivel or just clip part onto that, Put 1 SSG touching it, over doubled up line, float touching that and another SSG, 2 or 3 above, all touching and with splits lined up. Then attach varying lengths of hooklength to swivel clip.

      There are lots of different ways to do it, some of which would require a te minute film to show you properly!
      For me, it is: put the float into a rubber quick change adaptor, slide it onto the line. Tie a loop in the end of the line for the hooklength, lock the float with as few bulk shot as needed. In short, exactly the same as any other waggler but with no droppers.
      You don't need loops, short pieces of stronger line, special weighted adaptors or anything like that if you are using sensible main line. I use 0.22mm, 6lb, Ultima Power Plus and have never cracked off or been worried about moving shot and float on the line. My way, you can try different depths very quickly with only one rod.
      Simple, effective.

      If you want to see a set up using a weighted adaptor, look at this: YouTube - Pellet Waggler.mov

        Trouble is Steve you will need a heavier float and will not have as good presentation in wind than if you used 3 or 4lb line like I use.

          (In a Harry Hill stylee) Now.. i like the idea of the loops and the doubled up line yet i also like the idea of the straight forward float adaptor.. which one do i choose? theres only one way to find out FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT !!!!!

          I use standard pellet float adaptor and bulk shot.. but then again i hardly use the pellet waggler as not had any need to yet so i cant say if it works.. pointless response really hahahaha

                    I really wouldn't use them, very expensive, you need a shot 1 side that WILL damage the line!

                      the shot would be on the double line surley & a float stop on the other side of the float

                          Well, if it was over the doubled line it'd be ok but you still wouldn't be able to change depth, so why use 1? I have sometimes used shot over silicone but it can easily come off. Have you not had that problem Cookie? And, again, they are so expensive! and in my opinion, not as good.

                              What about shot coming off silicone?
