There's a lot of information in this thread ans it's going to take a bit of time to go through.
Can anyone tell me what the diameter of stem is for a wire stemmed Avon float? I have some Balsa Avon style floats that have been made with a balsa stem, and would like to modify them with a wire stem. Any info is appreciated!
it should be large enough but depends what size floats you are using because obviously the stem has to balance with the size of float if you see what i meanThank You! I had looked at 1.5mm, but it was still kind of flexible and wasn't sure if it was large enough. In order to have anything to fish with over here in the states, you either have to import it or make it.
I'm looking to make some wire stemmed sticks as I have some balsa to make those with. I'm shooting for 3BB to 5BB with the Avons. Finding some Stainless Steel wire to make the stems with isn't a problem so far. Actually, finding the appropriate size round balsa has been more of a challenge.it should be large enough but depends what size floats you are using because obviously the stem has to balance with the size of float if you see what i mean
