Drennan Crystal Dibbers
As unobtrusive, light and buoyant as balsa and more buoyant than foam, without compromising strength.
The unique Crystal technology was once just the domain of wagglers and running-line floats – but it has now entered the realm of pole floats!
Drennan believe that they are the only manufacturers in the world capable of ‘blow-moulding’ these super-tough pole float bodies to such a small, exacting size. Their latest machine is even smaller than that used to create the famous Puddlechucker pellet wagglers.
An obvious advantage of a Crystal Dibber is how unobtrusive it is in clear or shallow water. A solid-coloured pole float casts a distinct shadow and is much more visible to fish feeding up in the water or in the marginal shallows, and so cannot compare to a see-through design like this. That means a fish is less easily spooked and much more willing to venture towards your hook bait. This is a major advantage when fishing up in the water for any species, from carp and F1s to roach and chub. Ultimately, it will mean more bites and more fish in the net!
These floats are just as light and buoyant as balsa and more buoyant than foam, so nothing is compromised. The short, unobtrusive design is ideal for most shallow water applications while the domed glow tip is easy to locate above the surface. The float body is ultra tough and durable while a bonded glass stem is a good compromise between the stability of a wire stem and the extra durability of carbon.
The floats also feature a conventional looking side eye that is almost impossible to pull out in normal use. This is thanks to a unique way of attaching it. Instead of piercing the body and being angled downwards, the side eye is actually angled upwards and cleverly fused in place between the pole float body and the fluorescent ‘cap’ of the domed tip! In tests, these floats take on almost chameleon-like properties in the water. Some of the Drennan consultants have even commented how anglers on adjacent pegs thought they were not even using a float! When it comes to shallow fishing, the Crystal Dibber really is the next step in pole float evolution!
