As the old saying goes, floats are the eyes of a fisherman. How to choose a passing eye? After determining the type of float that needs to be purchased, we can simply identify the quality of the float.


See paint
Rotate the float to see whether the surface of the float is smooth and the coating is uniform from the reflection of the float and the feeling of the touch. Smooth float, better exit when underwater.


See concentricity
Whether the floating tail and floating body are vertical, the workmanship, whether the floating body is even, etc. Concentricity is not easy to observe, but if the deviation reaches the amount of millimeters, the float may be skewed when inserted in the water. And if the rod is drawn for a long time, it is easy to burst the top.


Weigh the float
Buying a smaller float should not be too heavy, as it cannot carry too much bait. Buy a float with a larger body size, and it should not be too light. When it is too light, the float is prone to jumping.



See if the drift tail is eye-catching
First of all, look at the thickness of the floating tail. To catch a big fish, you need a thicker float, and to catch a small fish, you need a float with a finer tail. In addition, the floating tail is generally composed of orange, red, green and other colors. We need to choose the one that we think is more eye-catching according to our own vision.


See if you drink water
The float can be adjusted to 4 meshes after adding lead skin, put it in the float adjustment bucket, and leave it for a day. According to the change of the float mesh number, it can be judged whether the float is drafted or not. Generally, due to temperature changes, the volume of the float will change slightly, resulting in a change of eyes, which is normal. Many anglers may set up their drifts at home ahead of time. Here is a suggestion: After adjusting the float at home in advance, you need to float according to the outdoor fishing waters, so that the float can adapt to the temperature of the outdoor water, and then fine-tune the mesh number to make the fishing more accurate.
