For me the Maurizio association started back several years ago when i saw the float manufacture mentioned in a fishing periodical , and i became intrigued . I later find out he used to work for Milo Columbo but went his own way and created a business of class float making.
I first introduced myself to him back in 2012 when i was still working out in Sweden as a design engineer for Scania trucks. I stated my interest and intent to purchase of him as i already knew his floats were class due to certain individual anglers in the UK who had been dealing with him. These anglers like Awad Jawad were already displaying their float trays populated with the italian's finest floats.
In 2013 i ordered the first batch of floats and have since not looked back as orders continue to stream in for his most popular styles promoted by Midlands Angling Supplies Ltd. Only just last week i have placed a huge order of about 7 styles of his floats plus also out own designed float which is already drawing interest from the match angling fraternity in the UK.
Recently we were presented with being a '' PREFERRED STOCKIST IN THE UK '' on behalf of MS floats and we have duly obliged with considerable orders. We shall together with Maurizio and the MAS team develop more float designs for under the MAS banner so watch this space !
To check out the quality of Maurizio please view the following :
The Mars Bleu is like any other pencil float but these MS floats are constructed to a very high level and their stability in the water is noticeable as the are so positive to fish indication. The float details are :
|0,10 / 0,20 / 0,30 / 0,5 / 0,75 / 1 / 1,5 /2|
Next to review is the Mercury which is an excellent whip float that is stable and casts well in the water for whip use between 1.5 to 6metres.
The float details are :
|0,10 / 0,20 / 0,30 / 0,50 / 0,75 / 1|
|Primarily for bleak fishing but is at home on the surface for other silver fishing :|
Next up is the Taurus with its unique flat spot on top of the balsa body. The bristle is then the most sensitive part of the float as only a small no.10 to 13 dependant on gram size is required to 'cock' the float to the correct viewing. The were tried and tested on the Stainforth and Keeby canal and also the River Soar and proved to be a useful collection to our anglers.
Tip: fiber glass
Stem: stainless steel
Sizes: 0,30 / 0,50 / 0,75 / 1 / 1,50 / 2
Use : highly sensitive when fishing canals and slow moving rivers looking for tiny bites.
The SIRIO became a popular float seller for us due to its versatile shape and visible tip . Our anglers used them consistently and all sizes were stocked in their trays for all occasions.
|0,10 / 0,20 / 0,30 / 0,50 / 0,75 / 1 / 1,50 / 2 / 3|
|multi-purpose float for moderate running waters, great for slight holding back|
The Regolo proved to be just as favourite with the Sirio float but was possibly preferred as a river moving float where is scored well. This float extended its range to 5 grams to allow for the bigger stronger rivers.
|0,20 / 0,30 / 0,50 / 0,75 / 1 / 1,50 / 2 / 2,50 / 3 / 4 / 5|
|High visibility for fishing in running waters.|
|0,10 / 0,20 / 0,30 / 0,50 / 0,75 / 1 / 1,50 / 2|
|Good for canals and slow waters, great stability.|
The Chinook is a great float covering a range of circumstances you may require when completing slider work . The floats allow you to alter your float size to your line weight size so you may require a float that has smaller bulk below . Other floats will have a large bulk of weights that could satisfy slowing down the pace of the rig. Class build !
|Easy -flow match float balsa body, fixed weight with steel swivel, peacock stem.|
|6 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 14 - 16 (+2)|
6 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 14 (+4)
6 - 8 - 10 - 12 (+6)
10+5 / 12+6 / 14+7 / 16+8 / 18+9 / 20+10
Probably the best range of slider weights for just one style of float .
Beautifully painted and conditioned floats
Also in the MS range is the Typhoon which is a casting dream.
|Extremely sensitive waggler, balsa body, changeable weight with brass round washers , peacock stem, insert different antenna types.|
|1 hollow tip Ø 3mm with fiberglass stem.|
1 hollow tip Ø 4mm
1 hollow tip Ø 5mm
|6 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 14 - 16 - 18 - 20 - 22 - 25|
|weight fixed with swivel or slider - kit antennas 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 available|
The start of the UK generation of MS-MAS floats (Maurizio Schiepatti - Midlands Angling Supplies floats )
The new MAS-MS float is a stick float designed by Clive Lloyd captain of our Winter League and National teams. The float is called: 'CL' and at the moment the gram size is 0.1 gram to 1.0 gram . The float has been targeted for fishing far track on a canal but its also adaptS on the river.
Orders have been placed as there was a 200 float order amongst our customers already so i think we may have to order more.
If you wish to make an order then please go to :
Many thanks and please enjoy the MS range.
