Thill® Gold Medal Series - Center Slider
Best slip bobber yet
I love the way this bobber is quick to action, fast to straighten itself and get on with fishing. It's super easy to string up for use. No toxic weight needed due to its tube-through design.

Great little sliders
When the water heat up I turn from Bass to my freezer fish, deep water Channel Cats. These center sliders work great getting bait down to the thermocline and suspending bait over rock veins and boulders. I also use these floats for big blue gills and shell crackers when fishing in "the abyss". They allow my line to slide freely, and stand straight up when the stop connects. One of the best things about these floats is the lack of resistance when the fish takes the bait. Now you see them, now you don't definitely applies here. I doubt that channel cats event suspect anything when I use this float. I use number 3 pinch on sinkers, a number 10 or 12 swivel and the appropriate hook size for the bait, then depend on waive action to move the bait over my bottom target. I also use this slider to jig baits over targets in a drop and fall pattern that works very well. I don't spend a lot of time watching a motionless cork. I prefer to exercise baits to provoke strikes. These center sliders really work for me and hope they do for you also.
