Anyone know of a place to find some of those bullet shaped floats like promar sells for marker floats? Just checkin to see if there is a cheaper price to be had out there?? I googled but I could only find links to manufacturers in china that'll sell you about 1000 of them "minimum order"! Thanks!

Hate to jack your thread, but where did you find 1000 at a time? and how much a piece at that number of pieces? were they the 5x11x3/4?

Don't matter none...jack away.

I just spent like 20 minutes on google and couldn't find it. I didn't price them because it was minimum 1000 or 1 pallet and I only needed 10. Originally I typed in something along the lines of "hoopnet float" or "lobster float" and one of the links had a bunch of manufacturers with there own websites. They had that size and multiple other sizes too. Sorry for the crappy information. Good luck finding them.

Ok I've done the same search, I couldn't find them for less than $3.60 each even in bulk. Was hopeing that you found what I couldn't, Cheep floats. I'm trying to Pat. and market something right now, But I just can't bring my cost down enough on the materials enough to make it cost effective. Thanks anyhow!!! Jim

P.S. Squid co has the floats not sure if ya want to come down San Diego way!!!

I get all my lobster gear supplies at Harbor Marine Supply in downtown San Diego - Pete supplies most of the commercial fleet and has excellent prices for commercial grade stuff.
