I remember reading somewhere that pole float choice with regards to shotting capacity is governed by the depth of water in front of you and there was a rough guide provided(such as a pole float of x shotting capacity should be used in xft of water). Anybody know where I can get a guide like this on the web? or can anyone provide one?
thanks

The basic guide is to use 0.1g for evey foot of depth(here we go, mixing metric & Imperial again). Seven feet needs a 0.7g float. This is for stillwaters. rivers will need more weight per foot & canals often require less.
If you want a conversion chart eg. 4x18=0.68g etc. then there is one on the Preston Innovations website, along with shot weights etc.
