        This has happened to me as well.
        I have a few of them and tried them and the weights pull out really easily.
        I glued the weights in as well.
        I think it's pretty shoddy to be honest.

          Your supposed to push the weight in and twist it however they still tend to come out so I superglue them in place. The other thing is I've had a few where the float starts sinking and the stem has got damaged and is taking on water.

            Yep. Happened to me as well. All remaining ones have been glued in. Do expect better of Drennan.

              The intention is that you can vary the loading to allow for different shotting, making the floats more versatile. However, if you have no intention of doing that, you may as well glue the things in. If you don't, you'll have to keep checking that the weight is fitting securely. As the floats see more use, you may find that you have to check them more regularly, even during a session.

                Don't throw them away there great to use as a straight lead either fixed or free running . Clip them on to a little snap swivel and they work a treat.I tend to use the 5gram the most .They enter the water with a little plop.Give them a try there spot on.

                  Lol D.M been my little edge for a few years that Olivetties are great but not versatile enough for me...as most times I was fishing the wag at half depth and float came off as I was effing and jeffing reaching for the landing net handle the line tightened up a little and I had a lovely run of bigger carp over the wag line on these little weights...??????????

                    That's almost the same as what i do with then
                    Attach mine to 3 different lengths 2lb Maxima 3" 6" & 9" with a very small bead on the end
                    I use them for catching shy biting fish in the winter .
                    If fishing a small River carrying a little extra with that Horrible boil on it that pops up all over the peg ,
                    Struggling to present a bait on the Trent @ Branston i was 2 hrs in going Nowhere ,1 Fish was winning the section & 1lb could be enough
                    i had a tube that i put broken floats in & there was a small alloy wire stick in there ,so i thought there's no way that would lift off the bottom
                    I broke the 5bb spread link off & attached this Stem using 2 x 1/2 " pieces of rubber 20" above my hook & flicked it about 25ft down the peg on a tight line
                    in about 5ft of turbulent water i needed the line to be as close to the bottom as possible so i bent a bank stick & placed it 6ft down the peg 2ft underwater
                    i used it to run the line underneath .
                    Amazingly it worked i fed only 4 bait droppers of bait 6 ft above where i was chucking
                    It never moved @ all unless i had a bite they all pulled the Rod round i never missed a bite & i never lost a Fish
                    End result section won with 1 small Chub 1 .4 lbs
                    I finished with 6 Gudgeon , 4 Chub . 2 Bream & 19 Roach oh & the smallest Perch i have ever Seen . 23 .6 for a win
                    That method won me almost £2000 that winter & the following 2 winters .
                    Never throw anything away you never know when you might need it
