The Maver MV-R X8 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 wagglers.
Specifications: 4, 5, 6 and 8 g sizes; 8 mm balsa bodies; 6 mm hollow tips; adjustable brass weights; optional anti-dive disc in each pack.
My verdict: designed for active fishing, the adjustable weights in the base of these floats allow you to fish them fully loaded, trapped on the line between float stops.
When cast out, they will cock perfectly, just revealing their tip above the surface. Alternatively, you can remove some of the loading from the base and trap them between small locking shot.
Their hollow tips are clearly visible in water, as light can pass through them easily.
The optional anti-dive disc will create some ‘splash’ on the surface and prevent the float from diving too deep. ‘Ringing the dinner bell’ (a term used when a float or bait hits the surface) will help to attract fish.
They are a pretty versatile float design as they do offer different presentation options.
