This bobber is very visible in the daylight and works a s advertised. The only problem that I found with it is that the tabs that you close around the line are a little difficult when it's cold or in a rush. That being said, at least I do not have to re-tie my line as you have to do with all other slip-bobbers. Overall this is a very good quality and highly recommended to have it your tackle bag!!
good product the orange and yellow color make it easy to see at a distance and the slot with locks allow it to be attached to line with hooks and weights attached.
I found the Slip Lock Bobbers to perform very well and was very please with the versatility they offered on the fly. While fishing holes in slow river situation it was a snap to bounce back and forth between slowly drifting bait at various depths then removing the float and working the bottom. The only hassle was that in low-light conditions or with cold fingers it could be a little cumbersome getting the line in the slot as it would occasionally get caught behind the little locking slot. Still, it was much less trouble than constantly retying the entire rig.
Slip Lock bobbers are product for every versatile angler.Ability to switch up rigs from bottom jigging to slip bobbering or suspended live bait to Lindy rig is key when fishing one of ND's premiere fisheries. These slip bobbers are easy to put on as long as you have a bobber stop in place.(One thing the Slip Lock Bobber does not come with.)I recommend this product.
I went fishing with the bobbers and found them to be very easy to use and put on the fishing line and it seemed like I got better bites.
I really like the latch design and ease of use of these bobbers.Not having to thread the line through a tiny hole makes it so much quicker and easier. The lower latch popped open and the line came out a couple of times but it was easy to re-attach. I wish they made bobber stoppers as easy to use and tie on.
Works good! Much easy to get on the line than other bobbers I've used.Easy to see out on the water.Although, the lock seemed like it was a little to easy to release, though I never had any trouble with it coming loose.
This is a great product. Well made. The locking mechanism holds firm and the line moves through it with ease, monofilament or braided line. I was very impressed with the versatility of the bobbers both individually in use and the variety of sizes in the 8 pack. The bobbers also helped add extra weight to cast longer distances due to the molded plastic design. No more time consuming re-rigging lines with the Slip Lock Bobber!! The only upgrade I would recommend is the colors be brighter for seeing better in low light/cloudy conditions or heavy waves. This is a great product.
I would recommend this product for several reasons. first is the ease of installing and removing the product so easily, second is the variety of sizes for the particular fish you are trying to catch, also as seen in the video is the option to use both sides depending on sunlight, clarity of water. As suggested I used the mini for panfish and it worked very well. product was very visible and reaction was very quick and strikes were accurate. I already added a few to my 72 hour bag and cannot wait to use them for ice fishing.
If you have children these bobbers are a must.Worked great with monofilament fishing line but did not work at all with fireline.Bobbers worked like any other slip bobbers but are much easier to switch sizes.The only thins that I did not like is that the locks can open, so ever once in a while you need to check them.
I liked these bobbers once I got used to attaching them.They are equal if not better than the ones I have been using.I strongly recommend you look into them

I used these bobbers on a small pond on a slightly cloudy and windy day doing some panfishing. I did not catch much since it was late in the year but they seemed to sitin the water really nice and were nicely visable. The construction seems nice and sturdy and they do not seem hard to get on and off.
Posted by Dale from Columbus, NC on October 25th, 2013
I have always used traditional tie in bobbers, but after this new addition to my tackle I can't think of going back.The only change I would like to see is perhaps a little more plastic on the barrel where you rotate the catch to attach to the line.I think this would improve ease of use in cold weather.

It's literally that easy, no more messing with hook/lure removal before switching between straight line and bobber setups. The Slip Lock Bobber is hassle free, casts well and offers great strike indication. This product will put you on the water in less than the half the time as traditional bobber rigs. This is a hands down must for any fisherman.

– "Slip Lock Bobbers! Way To Go!!"
I enjoyed using the slip lock bobbers on my fishing trips. They were very easy to use and we spent more time fishing than trying to string bobbers to our line with conventional bobbers. From a design stand point I feel these bobbers really stood above the rest.The locking mechanisms and line channel slot made attachment easy to use and took less time than the conventional method. I also liked the bright colors as they stood out brightly against the water and were very easy to see. There were a couple of improvements I would make. The lock opened a couple times while I was using the bobber causing the line to slip from its channel increasing the risk of loss. I would recommend a notch for the locking mechanism to slip into to hold it closed. Also the bobber slid up and down the line and didn't stay at the point I set it on my line. I mitigated this problem by placing a small sinker under the bottom for the bobber to sit on allowing me to maintain my line depth.The colors were awesome as I said earlier, but for fishing at night I would implement some sort of reflective material or LED light so the fisherman can see it on the overnight trips.

Its about time someone was thinking outside the box to create this bobber. I cant wait to see how well they work ice fishing. I have attached two pictures, take note of the one with the groove the length of the bobber with the two locks, this is how you attach it. A great american product

I like the bobbers for how easy they are to put on your line. just put the line in the slot and push the tabs over to lock them on. no more cutting my line and so easy to adjust my depth as I need to. quick and easy.

This is a great innovation and makes an old fishing pattern much easier. It's so easy and quick to change bobber size. The quality is very good. I'm sure they'll come out with additional colors.

Posted by David from Columbus, IN on October 6th, 2013
The Slip Lock Bobbers were easy to use and worked effectively. I found it quick to change bobber size and color (orange or yellow) without cutting and retying line. The larger bobbers worked great. Once the bobber stopper was on, the bobber took a few seconds to install. Saves time on changing size of bobber while fishing. I look forward to ice so I can test out the smallest bobbers while ice fishing. The effectiveness of the bobber seems the same as others but the installation of the bobber was far easier. I used the bobbers for fall panfishing and they worked well. Casting was simple with the bobbers. I was surprised that the bobbers did not also include bobber stoppers. That would be my only suggestion.

– "Best Easy Change Float Ever"
I have used a lot of gimmicky floats and this one was not a gimmick. It was very easy to change the floats and the locking system was easy enough to use even in colder weather. The true test will come later on when the salmon really get running but I think these floats will be great for jig fishing Coho and Chinook. Being able to put a larger float on to go from a micro jig to a 1/4 ounce is so much faster and I don't spend time re-rigging instead of fishing. I would really like to see larger sizes though and having the weight amount they will support on the float will be a huge advantage. More to come.....Well I think i have found a way to make them work and work VERY well for heavier uses. I used a piece of silicone tubing and put it on the line below the stopper. This allowed me to put 2 floats on at one time for heavier weights. I thought it would be hard to use but it wasn't too bad. I still hope that they make a series of larger ones for weights up to at least 1/2 ounce if not 3/4 ounce but until then I can't complain about the ease.Combining them float to make a larger one is not really workable and caused a lot of loss of free slip and just didn't work as well as I hoped. So far though the floats have stood up to braided line well with only one slight groove in the top of 1 float. This could have been caused by hard casting in windy conditions though so normal use still seems to have little effect on the float.
Posted by Christopher from Aberdeen, WA on October 1st, 2013
This is a quality set of floats. It doesn't offer the castability of a Rocket Bobber, but it's quick change ability and multi-color scheme make it a must own.This product is particularly good for fishing with children, as it will allow them to have the bait in the water within seconds of arrival.I think these will be great for ice fishing as well, no more cutting lines and re-rigging jigs in the cold when those jumbo perch are hugging the bottom!
Posted by Andrew from Union Grove, WI on October 1st, 2013
The Slip Lock Bobber was recently sent to me for product testing by Stuff Stuff and I would recommend them to anyone. Their versatility when fishing with them makes them super easy to use with the slide locks to put on or take off the bobber at anytime for a quick change in fishing techniques to catch more fish. The bobbers are relatively weighted; so they allow for a farther cast when compared to other floats. I used them to float-fish for steelhead/salmon in the river and also to fish for bluegill in the lake, so I would say that they can be used to fish for just about anything. They come in 4 different sizes and worked very well for me. Since I received two bobbers in four different sizes, you can bet I will be using them all the time now.

– "Perfect For Fishing With Kids."
The bobbers are an excellently made product, with superior quality. I took a large and small size bobbers, and dropped them from 6 feet onto concrete to test the durability. They held up just fine on the fall. I found this to be important as I've had other bobbers split on a hard impact. With kids this especially important. They can hit docks, throw or drop the bobbers, hit the side of the boat, etc. One con of the bobbers I found is that even though they are easy attach, you still need to attach a slip stop to your line while most easy attach bobbers "lock" onto your line. However if you have a hard time with feeding line through a traditional bobber, you will have no problems attaching this bobber. Put the line in place and turn the lock. Very simple and especially good for teaching kids.
Posted by Jeremy from Carpentersville, IL on September 29th, 2013
I was able to quickly attach the bobber to my line and start fishing.The bobber performed like any other and gives less resistance when a fish hits your bait.You will need separate bobber stops if you do not want the bobber to slip up and down the line.At $15 for the 8 pack is a little steep but the sturdy construction will allow you to keep them for a long time.It's a nice addition to your tackle box.

The bobbers work great, but with the excetion of being able to be removed from the line, there just like an ordinery bobber. Yes you get 8 bobbers, but you can go into most stores and buy a bobber for ninety five cents to a dollar.
