Handmade Balsa and Cork Quill Stem Avon Floats
Cork or balsa? I can never make up my mind!! I suppose cork carries a little more weight which can help with casting but one seems to be no less buoyant than the other so there's no real difference on that front. Depending on the feather pattern cork can look better but balsa can offer a fabulous contrast with the feathers! I suppose its personal preference but if you are anything like me its a tough one to call.
If you would like me to make you a float or two feel free to get in touch!
