Top quality cork bodies are finally here. This one is the largest of three sizes available at this time and is shaped the same as the original Thames Roach Float. Not cheap I'm afraid but the finished product makes it well worth the money. Only the ends need fine finishing / rounding off once the float is assembled. More images to follow of finished floats.

  • Sold in packs of 5
  • High grade cork, no filling required
  • 75mm long
