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"
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.
Over the next few weeks the finish on many patterns will be changing to one that I regard as the best on the market. Being a non metallic finish it also means the floats will be better balanced as the body weight is reduced.
You will notice that the deeper water floats are of a lighter colour but shallow floats are darker
This has come about by obsevation while diving and looking at how different colours appear under water and the angle you look at them
Pictures will be updated in due course.
A new pattern will be be released this week. the Hi Viz Diamond
