  • Floats for SALE

    I am clearing out my floats. I have a lot which do not suit my style of fishing anymore as I only fish matches on a few commercials and mainly fish stickfloat or feeder on the rivers. I would rather they were sold or swapped for something I would use.

    I will start with listing the pole floats I had in my desk. I have many more floats in rig boxes and still on winders to list when I get round to it. I will also have wagglers and stick floats.

    The ones I am listing have been used, been stored on winders or just simply not used. All floats are in great condition though and do not have any defaults such as missing eyes, line cuts to body and have not been modified.

    1 x 0.8g Sensas Desque
    1 x 0.6g Sensas Jean Desque

    Pic. 3 - Colmic canal and river floats

    Floats range from 0.75g to 2g. I don't know the pattern names apart from one which is a 1g Colmic Jolly, the others are mainly Serio Top Series.

    I also have;

    2 x 1g Preston Duraflot 3 (good deep water paste float) (others in smaller sizes to follow)
    2 x 0.5g Drennan Tipo (coated with hard as nails without tips)
    1 x 0.75g Drennan Tipo
    1 x 1.5g Drennan Tipo
    various Sensas Desque river patterns from 1g, 1.25g, 1.5g and 2g (not listed beacuse they are still on winders)

    I also have a tube full of broken floats approx 40-50 (Preston, Drennan, KC Carpa, etc). These may be of use to people for parts for doctoring floats or to repair. If your interested make me an offer on the lot.

    If you are interested in any floats just PM me. I haven't listed prices but they wont be expensive. if you would prefer I would be happy to swap for float patterns which I use. P&P will be extra charged at cost to the buyer.

    Floats for SALE: Update

    I have been and counted them, plus also found some more floats in a tube which had wagglers in aswell. There are a couple more Drennan floats and a few Preston Tyson ones which have been used but are still in as new condition. There will also be more floats for sale when I get around to sorting my rig trays out.

    When I say damaged float with most of them the worst that has happened is that the eye has pulled out or the bristle has come away. This could be easily fixed with superglue and the floats varnished with hard as nails to make them well usable again if you wanted to.

    What I am now selling is 50 vgc condition floats and 20 broken floats for £45. That is about 75p per good float and 40p per damaged float and I will sort you out with tubes to protect them in. These are all the floats shown in the picture, the floats in the plastic tub are the damaged floats.

    If you want to pick them up thats fine I am near Darlington County Durham. If not I can post them on at cost. Payment cash on collection, cheque or through Paypal 'gift' would be fine.
