Sarkanda Reed for float making 3-4mm / 4-5mm / 5-6mm (5-6mm out of stock - on order from supplier)- Very hard to find in the UK. This has been imported from India and is ideal for making various fishing floats - straight wagglers, insert wagglers, loaded wagglers and various bodied waggler style floats (see pictures). Incredibly versatile, this is an amazing material to make your own fishing floats from. Unbeatable price - if you see it cheaper anywhere let me know and I will price match.
Sold in packs of 20 stems. Each stem is 12 inches (30cm) long so it is easily possible to make 20 - 40 floats from each pack! Stem diameters are 2-3mm, 3-4mm, 4-5mm or 5-6mm. Available in single diameter packs or as a mixed pack.
One of the problems faced by float makers using Sarkanda is the waxy outer coating that naturaly occurs on the plant. This means every stem has to be individually sanded to key the surface so paint / varnish / lacquer does not peel off. I can do this for you in advance in my custom built drum sander which uses fine grade volcanic pumice powder to gently remove this coat entirely allowing you to get busy and creative. Please select the pre sanded option if you want this doing - it really does save a lot of boring work!.
