Bang on Blue and don't forget the price includes first class postage, and all MD's get an extra 10% discount if they order through PM on the site and not on eBay [:T]

A top bloke and great communication; all floats arrived super fast, safely and intact, looking forward to trying them out.

Ordered a few floats Friday lunchtime, arrived Saturday morning so super quick service, they look good so all I've got to do is make some rigs and catch something.[:)]

John it makes no difference if you order off my site or off eBay as they all go with free first class postage. The only thing that is different is Maggot Drowners get 10% discount if ordered through PM on this site [:T]

Now, you know you can never have enough floats, well I fancied trying some in-line floats (where the line passes through the float body) I noticed that Genesis had some in his eBay listings, along with a whole lot more. So I orders some late on Friday afternoon.

They arrived yesterday (Monday) in a neat cardboard box - along with free sticker!

Great service, good price. I will be back for more - once I can think of a reason (good or bad) for buying some!

Ralph [:T]

Too late.

Now, you know those Nitinol (memory metal) floats you sent me, well, how am I supposed to test the fact that hot water will bring them back to shape when they won't bend in the first place?

I gave the stem a good workout (above) and when I let go it looked like this...

Bloomin' 'ek, I can't see them getting any more punishment than that, but I will let you know what happens after I try them out on Friday.

Ralph.

As Genesis now as a locked account on here can you still send him messages. I have sent him two to order some float and they have not been read.

I think you've just answered your own question.
Try emailing him instead

Had a set of these delivered today and they look very good. I have quite a few Rizov floats and they are good value for money.

On Wednesday i ordered some of the new Genesis-Rizov RF140 3 x 10 & 4 x 12 chianti style floats with the nittinol wire stems. Got them on Thursday and set them up. Tried them in a match yesterday and I have to say they are spot on. Fished closed to reeds and they took some serious stick. Got to be indestructable.

Got the new model RF151 0.30gr from Andy last week. They are made of foam and have a brilliant idea of a groove down the body for the line. Tried them in the open today and had some lumps down the edge and through some snags. No marks on them after that and they sit down really well.

Just got the RF140 in 4 x 12 and 4 x 14. Red, yellow and some with black bristles. They do look the part and I am going to tie them tonight and use them on Sunday at Hallcroft. Will let you know how they perform.
