    What would you use this float for-20190713_112134.jpg

    It does so just go out and try it and remember;

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Elizabethan poets imagined sleep as death's little counterfeit; the French gave us La petite Mort - the little death - as a euphemism for orgasm. What Frank Herbert is on about in that quote beats me

    Going back to floats, others might not agree, but I'd think 2g is bit hefty for a canal whip float - more useful for a larger scale water such as an 8-10' river with a steady pull.

    I agree with you I was thinking it might be useful when its windy but with the whip yesterday I was able to cast out fully even with a much lighter float

    Wise words Mike. Alternatively you could use my philosophy and making full use of that internationally understood English two word phrase, look it straight in the eye and say; "FO before I punch your lights out". Pete

    I don't think Frank Herbert ever used that phrase Pete.
