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!
Cheap and easy. Fast to install or swap. Stays put. Already saved one pole...
I wish I would have know they made a larger model. They BARELY float my ultra light bait casters (Calcutta 50 and UL 7' Rod). They will not float my larger Calcutta 250 combo. I put tape on the Velcro, like another reviewer suggested, and they are not noticeable at all during casting, reeling or fighting fish. I gave it three stars because I think they have a very limited number of combos they could float- you don't get much lighter than a '50'.
Thanks for the feedback - we are considering bringing in the larger size.
I do some kayaking but it's more for the joy of traveling on waters. I fish float tubing mostly, for bass but I'll go out when the crappie are biting. What I like about the Fishing Rod Floaters, is being able to actually lay my rod next to me when I'm putting my fish on a stringer. I once was fishing with an Ambassadeur 5000 reel my brother gave me and I flat out let go when trying to make a far off cast. I just used my paddle pushers and got the reel back that was important to me. Now I can fish with these floaters on my rods and not have that worry in the back of my mind. ACK should also carry the 8 inch floaters unless they already do because these float standard size rods with ease. I bought some from another store (sorry!). I've tested the bigger ones while in my tube on the water and they always work. I've tried making my own floaters with pipe insulation tubes and the skinnier water noodles but it's far more trouble than you think to make them and attaching them, plus the Rod Floaters are ready to go and hardly expensive to have for 3 rods. It's a great accessory in my opinion!
A must have for kayak fishing to keep your expensive rod and reels on top of the water and not on the bottom of a lake
