This is the heavy duty version of the Blimp. Based on the famous “Chimp” style and shape but with the Hillbilly design and build treatment added for extra strength. The Blimp XS is an all round pattern which can be used with a variety of baits when strength and durability are of prime importance.
It is now built on a 0.7 diameter carbon stem for extra stiffness over its glass predecessor. The stem passes through the tough Tech4 foam body which gives the maximum strength for this type of float. The Blimp XS is fitted with 1.7 diameter hollow Hi-Viz tips and an extra strong stainless steel side eye glued deep inside its body.
It is capable of fishing almost any bait and is available in seven sizes with either red, yellow, green or black tips.
HB Top Tip.
Use the smaller sizes with bulk or spread bulk + droppers and the larger ones with an Olivette + droppers.
A good all round sensitive design for fishing canals and commercials with light tackle and small baits such as bread punch, pinkie, and bloodworm plus as the name suggests squatts. See details below for more information.
This design is one of my own favourites. The Billy-Bob is my “does it all” float for commercial and snake lake fishing and can be used to present a wide range of baits. See details below for more information.

Designed with the help of and named after top southern paste angler Dave (Pikey) Pearson this is the float to use for fishing paste in those 18” to 3 feet deep margin swims. . See description below for more information.
A strong innovative design for fishing at long distance on the pole although it can also be employed for those deeper than average short to middle distance lines. See details below for more information.
I call this one my “secret weapon” as it is so versatile. This float is a “hybrid” between a pellet float and a paste float and has been acclaimed by some as the best skimmer fishing float on the market. See details below for more information.
