In-line floats (mainly pike) they are not cheap, while rubber stoppers cost pennies. Who, however, regrets the stopwatch, often loses the float. In normal kit (running lead under the float, then a knot and a leader) at the moment of breaking the line, the float falls off it and is usually lost to us. Therefore, I advise you to use a stopwatch over the lead. In the event of a line breakage, this allows you to save the float. Second stopwatch located below the load, protects the knot against lead impacts and the possibility of damage. Our set will be a bit more complicated, but it will pay off.
