Rainbow Plastics Quick Float
The bubble float is a fantastic concept; low enough density to float, but with added weight for good casting. I was very excited to try it.
Unfortunately the design is terrible. Combining the line attachment and water sealing with one rubber piece makes it not only difficult to use (try twisting around the line with slippery and tough rubber), but results in extremely poor performance - it constantly leaks!! Even when the product is used properly, and secured so that it temporarily does not leak, the slightest press of the rubber or tug on the line will open leaks again. There are four openings in the plastic, all of which have to be sealed to prevent this. If the rubber or plastic has the slightest ridge or scratch you're out of luck.
I've seen bubble floats which separate the two functions of line attachment and water filling (with One properly designed plug). Too bad you just can't find these in the US.
Terrible product. I can't comprehend the good reviews for this. Good concept - Bad execution!

Awesome to use!
Easy float to use and great for kids! Much easier to use than the traditional water floats, and my kids can put it on themselves! Bonus! More time for fishing for us all and less time fighting the wind and re-tying the line. Thanks!

I love this fishing float! It is extremely easy to get on and off and the water-fillable feature makes for a nice weight to increase casting distances. No more cutting your line to get a float on or take one off when alternating between top fishing and bottom fishing. This is very easy to use. Also won't damage your line because the rubber plug that you twist your line up in does not pinch your line in any way. I highly recommend it!

Getting a clear bubble to work without the hassle of undoing your whole setup to get it on properly has been a real problem. This new bubble is fantastic. I have used it a number of times. It is easy to fill or refill if necessary and it just snaps on your line and holds tight. Great new product! Thanks
