Blakemore® Rod Floaters
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.

I use the rod floats on my open face spinning rods for regular bass rods and ultralights, I add two strips of sticky tape to increase rod diameter and keep float from sliding uip.

No real problem with have them installed on my rods-depending on where it is located you may have your line rubbing on it-but no serious problems
