The AS6 is a great addition to our award-winning pole float series designed in conjunction with Alan Scotthorne.
It is currently the largest float family in the series and available in six sizes: 0.4g, 0.6g, 0.8g, 1g, 1.25g and 1.5g. The AS6 was designed to meet Alan’s exacting requirements. Initially this was to cover deeper stillwaters of over 6ft (2m) or more. However, it soon became apparent just how versatile the AS6 was for a wide variety of venues, including rivers and deep canals.
The oval body offers good stability, particularly in windy conditions. It is also made from high-grade balsa for maximum buoyancy, which is protected with our special acrylic paint finish to create a super-tough ‘shell’.
A 1.5mm hollow Glow Tip in red, orange or yellow offers excellent visibility and works well with a wide variety of hook baits. A long, durable carbon stem is securely bonded into the body and offers good stability without affecting the float’s overall balance.
The AS6 also features our unique black stainless steel spring eye. This is lighter than a conventional spring eye and also cannot be ripped out of the body like a traditional side eye can. Being double wound also ensures there is no chance of the main line getting trapped.
The AS6 is a versatile, no-nonsense design, exceptionally made and built to last.
