These are made by "mix and matching" Drennan crystal floats, eg; a bodied waggler with a straight waggler section added. These just slide over the bodied section and are repainted and araldited in place. The ultra long range floats are carp "splashers" with loading removed. They are extended with crystal waggler bodies, some use "chubber" site to aid visibility.
