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.

Float 'em high As advertised, these work great. As an avid float tuber I have had two expensive combo's attempt to escape further fish fighting duties. Fortunately these escape attempts proved futile due to the rod floaters. There has been no problems with line slapping against them. Only gripe is after a few years they occasionally slide down the rod. A small price to pay for peace of mind November 30, 2008
Not bad What can I really say? It does the trick and keeps rods buoyant enough that you won't lose it when fishing from a boat. I strongly suggest one if you don't like using a rod leash. The only down side is unless you're using a medium rod it's goin to be a loose fit that requires adjustments. The instructions warn of this and suggest wrapping a little tape around the shaft of the rod before putting the float on. It works ok for me so far, but I also haven't gotten it wet since I put the tape on. (I imagine the tape will need to be replaced annually to keep it snug) February 12, 2015
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
Inexpensive Insurance I fish several Colorado reservoirs and normally carry two spin and two fly outfits on my pontoon. All I can say is these floats have saved rods for me on more than one occasion. As it's legal, when fly fishing, I normaly use two rods. The same is true when I'm using one spin and one fly. My tackle is top quality and I have about $750.00 invested in each of my outfits. Do the math, less than $15.00 protecting $3000.00 woth of tackle. I can't think of a better bargain in fishing. I've been using these floats for 5 years now and wouldn't take a rod on the water without them. I've found a small electrical tie wrap does better affixing them to the rod than the Velcro stips supplied. December 17, 2012

A: 
The line goes over the rod floater. It does not affect your casting in any way.

A: 
The float is attached to the rod at the base where to rod goes into the "cork" handle. The line stays right where it is without a float.

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.
