Never had any problems so i'd have to say that it's got to be down to how you are storing them Brady.

Talking about storage of pole floats guys... I have a browning seatbox. On the underside of the seat are two recessed squares. I pressume this is where you place your pole float & winders. How do you keep them in place without them simply just dropping out????
The later ABU floats are made from a VERY soft (& therefore buoyant) balsa & only have a thin coating. I have found that merely moving the float down the line can cut into them. Hence the addition of a coat of lacquer. Never had any trouble with Drennans.
Storage of Pole floats is important, and the winders you store them on also ,, There is a correct way of loading a float onto a winder and thats to have the body of the float in the deepest part of the winder. If you dont do this you will suffer damage to your rigs. maybe its this thats causing your float problems. Mal
