The Maver MV-R X10 Pellet Wagglers come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: pellet waggler floats for fishing shallow.

Specifications: available in 6, 8 and 10 g; 10 mm balsa bodies with 8 mm hollow tips; adjustable loading; supplied with anti-dive discs.

My verdict: a couple of weeks ago I covered the slimmer, lighter MV-R X8 pellet wagglers. These are the new X10s. Shorter, bulkier with bigger capacities, they’re a useful choice for fishing shallow, when the fish are homing in on the splash of the float.

They’ll lend themselves to fishing further out, too.

The adjustable loading in the base means that you can trap them between shot on your main line, or fish them as they come, trapped between float stops and cocked.

What you will appreciate is the hollow float tips, which Maver aces such as Andy Kinder tell me “seem to just glow in sunlight.”

Each float is supplied with an anti-dive disc, which will help ‘ring the dinner bell’ a little louder on touchdown for a quick bite, once you’ve got the carp competing.

A tough, well-thought-out pellet waggler range that’s made for busy fishing.

Price: £3.49.
