Drennan Shorty Pellet Wagglers

The UKMA team field tested the superb Drennan XL Pellet Wagglers a few weeks back, and we were that impressed with their performance, whilst fishing in a 25 mph cross wind. We soon realised that these were ideal for larger commercial fisheries but even in the smaller sizes, the XL option was a bit over-gunned when fishing on smaller venues. We were now looking for a pellet waggler that would be better suited for ranges up to 25 yards, and more suited to fishing shallow venues in open water and also tight to island and other shallow margin features, introducing the Drennan Shorty Pellet Wagglers.

Vital Statistics

The Shorty Pellet Wagglers are ideally suited for catching carp super shallow. The compact design of the Shorty, makes them an ideal choice when targeting carp really shallow or casting across to shallow island features. These floats have a diameter of 11mm, which is transparent, making the float less conspicuous to feeding fish. The Shorty Pellet Wagglers also feature highly visible sight tips, with four flights to aid casting accuracy and stability in windy conditions.

At the base of the float, you have the streamlined base weight, that is designed to increase the accuracy achievable with these miniature pellet wagglers. You can also fully adjust the weight on the float, by simply unscrewing the connector from the body and remove the weighted discs, until the desired presentation is achieved. Another useful component supplied with these pellet wagglers are the optional clear plastic, circular dive discs. These attach to the base weight to reduce diving on the cast, enabling you to maintain a more natural fall of the pellet as it hits the water.

Final Thoughts

Sometimes you just know if a product is going to perform well without even using it, and these minature Pellet Wagglers are definitely one such product. They have all the key features found on the XL Pellet Wagglers which the UKMA team have field tested and we absolutely adore them! The Shorty Pellet Wagglerss are far better suited to short range work in depths up to 3 feet. These very well thought out pellet wagglers are available in 4g, 5g, 6g and 7g options, with a choice of red, orange or yellow sight tips.
