They work great.Float slides effortlessly and casts great. I modified mine slightly by using a small plastic bobber line stop so I could reel my bobber stop up into my Cabelas Pro spincast reel. I didn't use the string bobber stop that came with the floats. My opinion would be to add one of the small plastic bobber stops that allow you to thread the line through it and wind the stop right up into you reel . This in my opinion would give each float more versatility.Two different uses with one float.
