FLOATS TO BEAT DOWNSTREAM WIND
These come in two different diameters, and in sizes from 2AAA up to 5SSG. Always use a float that will cope with the conditions and your presentation will be better, despite the weight on the line.
HEAVY BASE STICKS
These might look like regular alloy stemmed sticks but once you’ve used one you will realise they are very different. The 2.4mm aluminium bases are far heavier than other alloy stemmed sticks and the benefits are many. They cast more easily and, importantly, when the wind is downstream you can achieve much better control as the base of the float helps to keep the stick on line.
