What exactly does the "sensitivity" of float mean? There are two concepts that many fishermen don't understand.
Fishing friends all say that floats are the “eyes” of the angler. This analogy is still very appropriate. The year has passed, and many new fishermen will join after the beginning of the spring, which is faced with the problem of floating selection. In this issue, I will first talk to you about the "sensitivity" of floats.
1. When to look at the sensitivity
Some fishermen will ask, shouldn’t the sensitivity depend on when? When are you not talking? Of course there is! If you are catching a fierce fish, you can basically catch it with any float, even a self-made float with a small piece of foam board. So the sensitivity of the float we are talking about refers to the situation of pike fishing.
2. Sensitivity at startup
There are also two types of sensitivity. The first type is the "start sensitivity" after floating fish, which is the question of whether it can be started quickly. This is basically determined by the float material and the lead eating ratio. Generally, the reed floats are lighter and the feathers float. It's more calm, but Balsam is more average. This is because under the same amount of lead, the density of reed floats is the smallest, while feather floats is the largest. Therefore, there are fewer false mouths in feather floats, but they will not be reflected in small mouths at the same time.
3. the sensitivity of the amplitude
This is the second concept of sensitivity. The magnitude of sensitivity is completely related to drift type and drift tail. The more slender the float, the greater the range after starting, that is, the longer the stroke. Some fishing friends claim that this kind of drift can amplify the signal of the fish mouth, but this is actually what it means. The finer the floater, the greater the range of motion, so the slender floater is more suitable for small fish with weaker mouths, while the thicker-tailed float is more suitable for heavy and fast fish.
