Drennan AS 2 Pole Floats


The AS2 has been designed and developed in con­junc­tion with five-time World Champion Alan Scotthorne.

Available in six sizes from 0.1g to 0.6g, it fea­tures a thickened 0.6mm spring stain­less wire stem for improved sta­bility com­pared to glass or carbon. The stem is also only bonded halfway into the bulbous body, rather than con­tinuing up into the bristle, to improve the float’s bal­ance and beha­viour without adding unne­ces­sary weight and detracting from the buoy­ancy. Alan has field-tested these floats extens­ively and is happy that the thicker stem will with­stand plenty of abuse from catching big bags of carp!

The float bodies them­selves are remark­ably con­centric with very little or no mis­align­ment of the stem and tips to the body. Made from light grade balsa for max­imum buoy­ancy to size ratio, they are coated in an extremely tough acrylic paint ensuring a strong shell-like con­struc­tion, pre­venting line damage when under extreme pres­sure from big fish.

The AS2 body is slightly more bulbous than the AS1 and it fea­tures a hollow, 1.75mm dia­meter, buoyant, glow tip that can easily be seen in varying light con­di­tions. The shape and bristle dia­meter are ideal for presenting larger baits for carp and other quality fish. The extra buoy­ancy can help you to dis­tin­guish true bites from line bites caused by fishing brushing against the rig.

AS-Float-eyesGlow tips on AS pole floats are rein­forced through the sec­tion where they join the body. This strengthens the hollow buoyant tip at a crit­ical point and provides an extra strong found­a­tion for the eye.

AS floats also fea­ture a double wound stain­less steel eye mounted at the base of the tip. Being placed here offers the mech­an­ic­ally strongest pos­i­tion without pier­cing the body, and risking water ingress, there­fore affecting the floats per­form­ance. Being double wound (i.e. the eye is fully round) means the line cannot get trapped and dam­aged as is often the case with con­ven­tional, single wound, U-shape eyes. These spe­cial eyes are also made of blackened stain­less steel to match the body, giving a more dis­tinct demarc­a­tion line to the glow tip, so bites are easier to spot!

Available in 0.1g, 0.2g, 0.3g, 0.4g, 0.5g and 0.6g sizes.
