Ackoo's Handmade Floats

For this installment i thought would let you all in on a little secret of mine (and a bit of a fetish i have). Floats. I don't know why but i just love having loads of them especially handmade ones.
Just recently i came across a guy called "Ackoo" (Mark) on a forum and we exchanged emails about floats and one morning a tube arrived in the post with some floats for me to try out for him, so me being the float tart that i am said "Oh go on then".
I had always struggled using the self cocking paste float and needed something that would take a bit weight and hold dead still in any tow and Mark asked what size i wanted and a couple of days later they were on the doormat for me. Pictured Right. These are mega stable with a fibreglass stem and ideal for what i want.

After more and more emails and chats various other models arrived for me to use, i was like a kid in a sweetshop. Pellet floats, pellet wagglers, blobby floats and some all new pellistix floats which look like being a good winter F1 float and can't wait to try them.

I have spoke to "Ackoo" Mark on various occassions and has come up with the goods every time and delivery time was usually the day after, mightly impressive for the quality of these handmade beauties. He can make any float you so desire, all you have to do is ask.

You can get in touch with Ackoo thru the Carp Vader website via private message and while you are there you can pick up on some the special offers Carp Vader are doing at the minute. If not email him direct
