Blackbird Phantom Floats by Redwing Tackle

$4.45

The Blackbird Phantom Floats are made in Canada by Redwing Tackle and are very popular for trout, steelhead, and salmon fishing. The models with the clear bottoms make them nearly invisible from below in the water. The Blackbird Phantom Floats also work well when fishing for crappie or panfish in clearer/shallower water. The models with the black bottoms add a little more contrast making them easier to see when fishing deeper/darker waters. These floats can easily be used for slip float style fishing, are constructed using 1 solid piece of plastic, and are very durable.

The Blackbird Phantom Floats come two to a package, have a slit in the bottom section to put the line through, and come with silicon tubing to hold the line in place on the top and bottom of the float.

Specifications for the Blackbird Phantom Floats can be seen in the Specifications tab above. The weight section of the Specifications table shows how much weight the float will properly float.

Inaccurate weight ratings...

Pacific Northwest, USA

About Me:
Avid Fisher
Great floats, very visible, sturdy and hard to break. I use these for trout and steelhead centerpin fishing. The only problem I have with these is the float gram rating and the actual weight used to properly set the float are different. I use a digital scale to weigh all components below the float before shotting my line, and I always have to remove some of the shot to get them to float right. A 7g float sits about right with 5.85g of total terminal tackle (fly, shot, swivel).

Pros: Easy To Store, Strong

Cons: Guess the weight
