The Rod Floater slips easily onto your fishing rod and secures with hook 'n' loop straps. If your rod falls overboard or is pulled into the water, it'll float and allow you to go retrieve it. Losing your expensive rigs can ruin a fishing trip, so worry no more!
My wife's dad was trolling a few years ago and his lure snagged some brush, flipping his rod overboard. He went back to try and retrieve it but it was nowhere in site, so he lost a rod that had a lot of sentimental value. Since that time Blakemore came out with these sensational rod floats that take away the worry of losing your rigs in the water. When I taught my kids how to fish and cast lures, the floats saved their rods on several occasions!
Great for small rod and reel combos, but not very good for my big lake rod/reel combos. Wish ACK had the eight inch ones instead of the six inchers.
Saved a $250 rod and reel when I flipped my kayak on a section of river I was not familiar with.Will be putting them on all my rods.
I use these on light action road in tht kayak. Does not interfere with casting or retrieving in any way.
