Might be a dim question, but when making up a new pole rig (see attached for a 0.6g float) does this take into account the hook and hookbait?

Those are rough conversions ,you will need a little more shot usually ,and doesnt take bait or hook into consideration.

Not your fault everyone of them is the same and it has perpetuated over the years.
Yes ,i tend to learn my floats i have rigged up and when making new ones up i know then ,or count the number 8s and 10s or whatever and copy on the new rig . I used to write it all down .

I always leave final tuning till I’m at the venue anyway but even then I have been caught out.
It comes down to find a range of floats and shot your happy with and stick with them.
