Hi, can anyone help? I want to attach my waggler floats bottom end only using silicone tubing. Is 3mm bore diameter big enough? Looking at ordering a bulk length from eBay.

Thanks in advance

Depends on your wagglers Andy, they vary in thickness.
Have you though about getting some float adapters?

I'll be using Drennan until the stocks run out in the shops. Shouldn't be long now!!

They last for years Andy, unless you loose em. I use rubber float stops rather the shot to hold it in place on the line. There are loads of cheaper alternative ones on ebay.

Oxford, and occasionally Warrington Lancs
I used to make my own with cycle valve rubber and small swivel.
Andy there are other brands besides Drennan.
Depending on size of waggler have you thought of the swivel feeder links, ?
The swivel part goes on the line and the quick change link through eye on waggler. A couple of gripper stops either side of swivel holds all in place. Plus float can be changed in seconds.
