Float due to material, shape, color, different purposes such as to form a colorful, ever-changing sprawling family, generally due to the floating is different can be divided into five kinds:
(1) vertical float: is there a long bar, bar, round, spindle, gyro, umbrella, and many other styles, when using vertical in the water, the upper part above the water, fish swallowed the hook, the float or sink or rise, information, use more, especially beginners, the elderly and visual memory, greatly welcome.
(2) horizontal float: when using float drifting on the water, the fish bites the hook, the float will be inclined or standing up, information more clear, also especially afraid of wind and waves are its characteristics.
Chain-shaped float (3) : also called line drift, floated the centipede, 7 floated, crushed, and so on, is more than (5 ~ 7) for general floating bead concatenated together with an interval, when using floating on the surface of the water (sometimes with a few ducks, the advantages of strong adaptability, change point, don't need to adjust the float, due to the water depth is changing but it is not easy to see the dynamic changes of the drift, reason is only applicable to the static water, close to fishing, and age is not good.
(4) ball float: there are two round or spindle, more than a thin plastic, foam or characterized by buoyancy, especially suitable for the medium and upper fish float, fishing waters in more large static water use, but not too high sensitivity.
(5) special float: as for the night fishing luminescent floating, floating point has a luminous paint, can see clearly in the night. Electronic float, emerged in the recent by light or a color change, immediately can reflect the fish bites the hook.
