Drennan Margin Crystal
Wed 10 August 16
Margin fishing or down the edge is a tactic that simply can’t be ignored at this time of year. With many matches being won in the last few hours of amatch, with big fish from the margins, the tackle required has to be well and truly up to the job. Taking this on board, Oxfordshire based Drennan released the Margin Crystal earlier this year, to follow on from the success of the superb Crystal Dibber & in-line Crystal Dibber. Read on as the UKMA team take a proper look at this floats whilst out on the bank.
This latest addition to the cCrystal float range is built to the similar exacting specifications as the award-winning Crystal Dibber and In-Line Crystal Dibber pole floats. They feature a 2.5mm diameter hollow Glow Tip, which makes this pattern a really versatile option sutable for margins up to 5 feet deep, both at your feet or against island margins at range. The floats highly visible tip means it just as useful for open water situtions including shallow in deep water. To finish the float off you have a double-wound, spring side eye which is designed to protects the line and cannot be ripped out of the body like the conventional side eye.
The UKMa team found that even when fishing in depth as shallow as 12 inches, the foats clear Crystal® body makes the float vertually invisible compared to traditionally painted pole float bodies. this greatly reduces ny chance of big cautious fish being spooked in bright sunlight and shallow water. They offer superb stability and strength as we found out whilst playing some absolutely enormous zoo creatures whilst out on the bank. After several sessions of serious abuse, the floats were still in perfect working order, with no signs of wear or tare (bonus).
It comes as no real suprise that the Drennan Margn Crystal pole floats are 100% fit for the purpose they’ve been designed for. The glass stem is exceptionally strong, the double-wound, spring side eye is toally bomb proof and the 2.5mm Glow Tip is very buoyant, making it possible to use even the largest of baits. As a big bonus, the tip is also highly visible even when fishing at range to features in poor or variable light conditions.
