Spend a little time with an avid steelhead fisherman and you will quickly learn "they never leave well enough alone." These Premium Steelhead Floats feature line-friendly latex tubing in place of the standard spring which holds tight without nicking your line. Additionally, the buoyant balsa body is fitted lower on the shortened float shaft providing a more compact yet highly visible float.

We currently stock these floats in three sizes: the 3/4" version, which is model SF510, the 7/8" version, which is model SF488, the 1" version, which is model SF490 and the 1 1/8" version, which is model SF598.

These are "loose" floats (i.e., they do not come in a separate package) and they are priced per one float.

I really like how durable they are and the rubber tube is so much better than the spring. It doesn't wear your line, is easier to adjust the depth, and installs and removes quickly. Very good idea and the best float I have ever used.

Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Functional, Easy To Maintain

Cons: none

putting a rubber band on the top, with live bait, like minnows does not work, because the bait swims around the bobber, and makes a birds nest. About the metal wieght slipping off, just pinch it.

About Me:

This is a good float for river fishing and the size range is good also. The only improvements I would make is to add the slip tube for the top of the float and tighten up the radius on the lead ring so it doesn't slip off as easy.

Pros: Easy To Use, Functional

Cons: none

Best Uses: Fresh Water
