Recently, I wandered around the forum and found that many anglers have great doubts about the buoys they use, how to choose buoys, and adjust fishing. I will sort it out and explain buoys to you with my own 5 years of technology engaged in buoy production and 9 years of experience in Taiwan fishing.
As far as the material of the domestic buoy is concerned, it is divided into: bal fir, nano, reed, feather, carbon.
Bal fir, as the name suggests, is a wood material! Domestic fir materials cannot meet the standards for making buoys, and the density and humidity cannot be reached! The best fir material is a premium material imported from South Africa! High density, light weight, small wet women, is the best choice for this type of buoy. So what are the advantages and disadvantages of Bal fir buoys?
Disadvantages: Because it is wood, its own weight is still heavy compared to other materials, and the buoyancy is also average! The sensitivity is the worst of these materials!
Advantages: Since his shortcomings are weight, then this is also its advantages, self-weight, stability is good, the mouth is very real, can effectively filter the signal of small fish and miscellaneous fish!
Bal fir buoys, seen in the domestic market, are basically 5-10 yuan more, the cheapest one, its workmanship is also very general, after all, the price is here. And mostly with a bold tail. The buoys of Bal fir are very popular among competitive players, and the fish of competitive competitions are all battle-hardened, and the mouth is a slippery batch. But it can make good use of its stability and solve all this with a pretext. Usually wild fishing, black pits, with Bal fir wood is very little. Traditional fishing is mostly used.
Nanomaterials are new materials that have only been fully developed in 08! You can say it’s foam, but not plastic! It is denser and less dead weight than the foam we see in our lives!
Advantages: The buoys made of nanomaterials are currently the most in the market, and the production process is simple and easy to use. The price is also relatively cheap. His buoyancy is large, his own weight is light, even if it is broken, he will not draught, and his sensitivity is okay.
Disadvantages: light weight, poor stability, messy mouth.
Although nanodrift has been new for a short time, it now occupies a large part of the market. Simple to make, relatively low price, has already captured a large number of fans. Especially wild fishing large reservoirs, you need to eat buoys with a large amount of lead, nano drift can always meet your requirements.
Reed buoys, reeds can be regarded as the earliest drifting material. It is said that it can be traced back to the Shang and Zhou period. This material, Dongting Lake is very common. Adult reeds are generally 2 to 3 years old. After harvesting, it is placed in a naturally ventilated warehouse and dried naturally, and the air drying time is about 2 years. Only naturally air-dried reeds are the best looking, most durable, and the material contains the least amount of water! Careful anglers can spot that some reeds are drifting, blackened and moldy. That’s all because the moisture hasn’t dried out.
Advantages: light weight, large buoyancy, high sensitivity. The sensitivity of reed drift is almost the best of all materials! Thanks to the material itself!
Disadvantages: eye-catching, draft, false mouth, easy to explode. The advantages of the material are also the disadvantages. The sensitivity is too high, resulting in many false mouths and false mouths. Moreover, there is a problem with draft in reed drift. Although the technology and paint have improved in the past two years, it still has not actually solved the problem of no draft at all. Now it can be 24 hours without changing the eye. A few years ago, I used an Alu reed, and basically it took 2-3 hours to re-re-resurfe! It doesn’t exist anymore.
In my impression, those who float with reeds generally have better fishing skills. Novices dare not challenge the characteristics of reed drifting, and some people are afraid of trouble. Reed drift is suitable for fishing black pits, crucian carp. The best reed float is the body shape of short feet and long body, and it is easy to use for crucian carp fishing in winter!
Feather drift, is a peacock a special feathers, its hair roots can be used as the standard material of advanced buoys, peacock feather buoy production process is more complicated, high technical requirements. It is divided into shelled and unshelled, single peacock feather and multi-petal peacock feather patchwork.
Advantages: Peacock feather buoys have good stability and sensitivity, so well-made peacock feather buoys are probably the favorite type of buoys of competitive anglers, especially shelled single roots – stable, sensitive, and buoyancy is moderate. In particular, shelled soft tails have unique advantages in dealing with slippery fish. Therefore, it is wise to choose a shelled peacock feather soft tail when dealing with slippery fish. Due to its good stability and high sensitivity, the outlet of feather drift is the most stable and solid of all materials!
Disadvantages: self-weight, sensitivity in the middle of reed and nanometers. The buoy of the peacock feather can change in extreme cold or heat. Thermal expansion and contraction. But now almost no one goes fishing in such an environment. There is a greenhouse in the cold, and night fishing is hot for night fishing.
I personally like the buoy with peacock feathers the most, I like its mouthful, not vain, and I like its special texture. Crucian carp are caught in winter, and only the feathers are used to float.
Carbon buoys are a special material that was newly added the year before. But in fact, buoys of this type of material have a very general effect. Not recommended.
To sum up, there should be a rough preliminary understanding. In fact, many things are not absolute, buoys, bait, poles, none of them are necessarily the best! A fisherman should have a certain understanding of what he buys, just like his wife, to understand him, grasp him, and read him. Use his best strengths!

After two days, sort out the drift type and exchange the choice of the drift type.
