N6 are the ‘Big’ set. Sizes go right up to 5.0g. The body is slightly body down shaped and not a basic sphere as really ‘fat’ round bodies do sometimes feel a bit cumbersome – even though they can be necessary. For such large floats these are actually quite refined.
A river float for when it is flowing and when you are fishing positively and with bigger baits. A great long line to hand float. Can be held back well due to the body shape and stem length. The side tube allows the use of thicker lines which are commonly used as well as stopping line cutting into the body. The decent sized stainless steel eye above it ensures the floats have the correct ‘attitude’ when settled and the line exits correctly.
The 1.0mm carbon stems are relatively long but that makes them excellent in deeper water and when fishing long to hand. Of course, you can always trim them back if you want (especially if your winders are just not quite long enough !!).
