I have been using BPS rod floats for over 20 years. When I was guiding and people used yer rods, you NEEDED something like them to protect your gear. Had 4 rods thrown in the water, but 3 with the rod floats and it worked well. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE LONGER ONES, if possible, because if you have a heavy lure, like a 1 oz weight or a Alabama rig, you need it to float yer rod. I use them on my Dobyns rods, too. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
