Innovation Not Imitation


Important Information

When purchasing floats, could we ask all customers to finish transaction properly & not click "back" or refresh.
This is causes problems with payments not being allocated correctly to some orders. Many thanks



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 himselfMW Floats DO NOT, and will never, buy in pre-formed bodies unlike some of the other "handmade float manufacturers".

Two new body materials have become available and following externsive testing, I will be changing patterns over to these where appropriate. We also advise that we change colours without notice. 
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 these floats. Because of the strength and bouyancy of this material many patterns that previously needed spring eyes can now have traditional side eyes, greatly improving presentation but without any real comprimise in strength.


Two years ago  I made a series of floats for Adam Wakelin to meet his needs for a strength but finesse at the same time  suitable for both F1 and carp ion the ever more popular snake lakes emerging around the country

Now Adam has left Preston and I am getting continual calls about them I feel its time to release the new Wako pattern

Carbon stemmed 1,3mm  flatterned hollow tips

Made from a new foam material to the market whichhas several advantages over anything out there at present

fine 150grade  these will treplace the F1 finesse floats which were made from 71 grade foam
