Losing your expensive rigs can ruin a fishing trip. Blakemore® Rod Floater slips easily onto your rod and secures with hook 'n' loop straps. If your rod falls or is pulled into the water, it'll float. Standard: for casting, flipping and medium-to-heavy spinning rods. Small: for crappie, ultralight and kids' rods.

My rod would have drowned I fish farm ponds and while making a cast from the bank my cork handle slipped off in my hand while my rod combo flew about 15 feet into the pond. I had one of the Blakemore floaters on the combo and was able to use another rod and pull it in by snagging it with a lure. This same thing happened to my sister at a lake but she just let go while casting. Her husband was happy that he had also equipped her combo with a Blakemore floater and it made this particular rod, stand up in the water like a flagpole. Thank you Blakemore for saving lives with the rod lifevest. October 5, 2006
disappointed The rod floaters serve the purpose but were much less than expected. They look like a kids floating noodle with a slit and 2 velcro straps. Pretty sure I could have made the same thing with a piece of pipe insulator and some string for much cheaper. July 15, 2012
Best Insurance You Can Purchase As a kayak fisherman who carries way too many rods with him, I've come to appreciate these Rod Floaters. After loosing a very nice flipping-stick, and my wife's spinning rod that I had "borrowed," I realized that I had to do something. Some people use rod leashes in their kayak, but I find that it gives me too many lines to get tangled with, and when I'm fishing freshwater, I switch rods way too often. I bought these, and op-tested them in shallow water. They will indeed float even the heaviest bass rods. I "accidentally" tested it out on one of my very heavy saltwater rigs (think BIG reels) and it floated it long enough for me to make a recovery. If you're putting this on off-shore gear, I'd recommend either using two, or switching to a clip-on float, but for every other purpose, this is more than enough. Some people may be concerned that they will impact your ability to cast. I've not had any problems with that, other than occasionally having line from a spinning reel get caught in the tag-end of the velcro, but this was more of an oversight on my part by not having it properly positioned in the first place. Have had zero issues with baitcasting reels, including low-profile bass reels. Compare the price, for protecting 3 rods, with the cost of replacing just one, and you'll see that this is easily the best rod insurance you'll ever find. The only disadvantage -- it's not the prettiest addition to a sexy bass rod; but it's better than being an eye-witness to your favorite rig heading for the bottom. Also, if you get the black ones, they don't look THAT bad. One additional piece of advice -- if you fish at night, put a wrap of reflective tape around the rod tip and the rod butt -- that way, if they go swimming, you can use a flashlight to easily find them, even on the darkest night. They will be floating there, waiting for you. June 4, 2012
useful Reasonable value for the money. I found that the velcro straps used to secure the foam pieces did not hold very tight. The unit would slide up and down on the rod easily. Very annoying, even though I'm sure it would still do it's job. I put some boat tape on each end to secure it better. Looks a bit tacky though. June 30, 2011

A: 
You are correct that the float goes in front of your reel. The line does not go through it, it actually goes over it. I've used this on several rods, with a variety of different types of baitcasters (including low-profile bass reels) and have not had a single problem with having it on my rod.

No the line does not go through the rod floater. I use these on my rods, when I take out senior citizens fishing.

A: 
No...the float attaches around the rod. the line is still above the floater going into your line guide. the floater does not interfere with casting and does not rub the line.

A: 
No the line never goes through the floater. It stays above the floater. If it gets in the way you can always shave some of the float of with a knife. Reels fine there are 2 sizes small and large.

No, line needs to be free flowing. Sometimes it gets stuck on floater.

A: 
The line does not go through the float at all. Rather, the line would ride well above it.

A: 
the line does not go through the floater. the line either hovers over it, or slides over it. It reels and casts smoothly with all my baitcasting reels.
