The Maver MVR Series 11 Paste Floats 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: paste floats for fishing in deeper water.
Specifications: 0.2 and 0.4 g sizes; a long fibreglass stem runs through the balsa body, well into the long, hollow bristle; wraparound eye with a second eye at the tip of the bristle.
My verdict: designed specifically for paste fishing in those deeper swims, with a longer stem than the MVR Series 10 pole floats, for extra stability.
The long antenna helps you to read when your paste has broken down, as the float will come up in the water, showing more bristle, as well as helping to read bites and identify liners.
The eye at the top of the antenna helps keep tangles to a minimum and stabilise the float. And the wrap-around eye at the top of the body, which the bristle passes through, helps keep everything in line.
The latter ensuring the eye is less likely to get pulled out of the body when you’re playing powerful carp.
These floats are constructed to handle the rough and tough of paste fishing and commercial carping.
Price: £1.99 each.
