Because of their bigger diameter (our other crystal clear wagglers are 6.0mm) and greater buoyancy these Crystal clear pellet wagglers allow the angler to use larger baits and are also much more visible at distance or in choppy water and poor light conditions.
These are unloaded so that they can be trapped with shot around the float as many prefer this to loaded versions. Trapping large shot helps to stop the floats from diving too deeply upon hitting the water although ‘feathering’ the cast helps a lot.
Their capacity is 3.0g 4.0g and 5.0g and when the suitable amount of shot is placed around the floats they sit perfectly, using no shot down the line if required, and allowing the angler to use a large hookbait.
It might surprise some but Pellet Wagglers can also be used in relatively shallow flowing rivers and streams as their extra buoyancy really helps to drag shot on the bottom and when striking they strike ‘clean’ folding on the strike and making almost no noise. Being unloaded they can be used with larger ‘droppers’ and even a bulk. This can be an excellent & entertaining way to float fish for Specimen fish like chub and barbel.
There are two tip colours available; dark orange and yellow. Changing either to black (which, strangely, although VERY useful is by far the least popular colour) is the simplest thing to do.
Below is a guide to sizes and lengths
Pellet Waggler – 3.0g approx 115mm long, 4.0g approx 140mm 5.0g approx 155mm.
As an approximate guide 3.0g = just under 2SSG or 4AA, 4.0g = 2 1/2SSG or 5AA, 5.0g = just over 3SSG or 6AA.
