    Default Malman floats

    Gaz Malman has commented on this on the maggotdrowners.com forum.

    The float shown in the article is a Malman Snake 4

    See Fox Match or Malman

    Looks like an old Tubertine diamond too me or the KC Carpa Canal (with a glass stem)alot of tackle companies copy float design.
    I still use that float design on canals and when hemp fishing on rivers,the shape of the float has been about for years.

    It is defo one of gaz's, yes the shape has been around a while but is easy to tell it is a malman, to say it's a fox prototype is just wrong. They may intend copying...and that is a different matter... but to say someone elses product is your prototype is a bit out of order in my opinion.
