Thanks L-p H

I've used the 6" mini Thill Shy Bite, support both the mealworm or cricket, yet, still manage to add a mini-splitshot about 9" below the float. So, yes, it should work well with your setup. If your BB is too heavy, just use the bait. That should be more than sufficient. As for the worm, depending on how much of a worm you're using. If it's a red wiggly, not a problem. If it's a full size nightcrawler, that float will go under faster than the Titanic. This may requires you to use the larger Thill Supreme Stealth or Mini-Stealth.

Thanks for the comments!  I suspect on calm days, the smallest ones will float a BB & bait (cricket or worm) fine?

For the calm days, or fully insulated from wind, try the 6" skinny. Of course, if you're trying for heavier bait, then 6"+. Windy days, definitely something with a larger oval bottom. The Shy Bite skinny is as close to the quill float as you can get it. Got mine for $1, in a bulk of a dozen during  a sale. Compared between my quill and the Shy Bite, it's practically identical to detection, and weight support equivalent. Very unique.

I'm no help - I make my own stealth floats, or go with a modified quill type when I want that. I also like the smallest cigar floats.
I you plan to spend money on floats, think long and slender, as opposed to short and fat.

Thanks man!  What size would you recommend?

Comment by Leo Nguyen on March 17, 2014 at 12:09pm

Marion, try the Thill Shy Bites or the Ultra Shy Bites. Much more effective.

Anyone tried these as floats?  BB split shot and crickets is what I need to float.
