These walleye floats will outperform the old center tube plastic floats in both slip-bobber fishing and in beating the wind. A much more sleek and sensitive design allows the angler to burry the line beneath the water by attaching to the base of the float – no line out the top of the float means a much more steady presentation which the fish will respond to vs. the line-out-the-top slip tube bobbers.Constructed with South American balsa wood, a SPECIAL SLIP-N-LOCK line-attaching device, and a through-glass stem, Gapen’s floats are the strongest, most sensitive balsa floats on the market today.
