Innovation Not Imitation
MW Floats are manufacturers of original hand made commercial fishery pole floats, which have been designed to perform rather than simply look pretty.
We developed most of today's popular patterns that anglers across the country are using day in, day out - which have been copied by large commercial companies, but never to the same standards of finish or strength.
All bodies are turned IN-HOUSE by Mick Wilkinson himself. MW Floats do not and will never buy in pre-formed bodies unlike some of the other "handmade float manufacturers"
Contrary to what some other float makers may say, MW Floats have been working with hi-tech foams since 2003 (several years before so-called pioneers of these materials even started to make floats!). Just when we think we have found the ultimate body material, another comes along to take its place. A lot of other float makers import their bodies from Overseas pre-made, so all they do is to glue the pieces together (some even buy the ready assembled floats from Overseas and claim they are "handmade" by themselves!).
Two new body materials have become available and folowing externsive testing I will be changing patterns over to these where appropriate.
These materials are head and shoulders above anything on the market previously and are a quantam leap forward for both strength and bouyancy.
UHP Ultra High Performance is a material which is perfect for patterns where finesse but extra strength is required. This material has approx 3X the strength of normal balsa wood but is approx 15% more bouyant than soft grade balsa. First used by MW Floats in 2006!
UTP Ultra Tough Performance is perfect for carp floats where extreme body strength is required but is 20% more bouyant than the material I used previously for thse floats. Because of the strength and bouyancy of this material many patterns that previously needed spring eyes can now have traditional side yes, greatly improving presentation but without any real comprimise in strength. First used by MW Floats in 2007!
Over the next few weeks the finish on many patterns will be changing to one that I regard as the hardest wearing on the market
Pictures will be updated in due course.
