Had seen these floats on the net before, but never knew alot about them. After speaking to a friend he said they were good quality etc, so i put in an order for some of the pellet stix, ordered late sunday night, arrived tuesday morning. the floats are top class, one had a spring eye missing and so emailed asking if one could be sent down, next day a packet of side eyes was on my doormat. top quality service! Havent had time to test the floats yet, but by looking at them they look top quality!

They sound and look (on the website) good.

Can you let us know how they fish, after a few trips.

A spring eye was missing so he sent you a side eye !!

I would expect him to send a new float, not the parts for you to finish building them.

PurpleWheelyBin,
I am very concerned to hear about the Greenies as this is the first time we have had this type of comment. Can you e-mail me on sales@buygoodtackle.com with your name and address and when you bought them so that I can sort it out for you and I can trace the batch back in order to take it up with the factory as that should not be happenning.

Same here, I have also bought others that I am quite happy with. Like the man says, it must be a bad batch.

BuyGoodTacke,

I have just been down the celler and found the tube they came in. The ones in question were posted on the 13/3/09 if this helps.

Thanks, we sent some others out from the same batch on the same day so will be checking to see that they are all okay, if they are it sounds as if it is a duff pack. Eitber way it shouldn't happen and I will be having words! Sorry again for the hassle.

have been using ackos floats for about 6-8 months,the pellet stix are amazing,if someone said to me I could only have one pattern float in my box it would be ackos pellet stix,they are SO SO stable and sensitive as well as strong as hell. I also use his beanies for shallow pellet fishing they are great. I use the stix for 90% of my fishing,the stem is a bit long for fishing in water of about 2 feet but I cut it down to suit,I am just in the middle of placing an order for more and will also be ordering the stumpy stix they look more suited for my margin fishing and am sure they will be stable as well. Trust me I have not broke a float in the past 8 months but lost a few on snags and under bushes

I use nothing else but the BGT floats. They usually come with tips in 2 colours, so i put a black marker on a couple of the red tips,which makes changing the tip colour easy as the rig is already set up, just change the float, job done.
The service that Bryan offers is superb,and you can see from the problem with the pinkies that he was very concerned and sorted it out straight away. 1st class Bryan.
