Making the Tubertini Floats . . . .

Float design is the first step, the research is carried out by Ferruccio Gabba, thanks to his brilliant experience and as a former Champion, he knows the needs of competition anglers very well and also the different requirements within differing area of the competition field. When the design is set prototypes are made for testing and, if necessary, they will be modified until the outcome is perfect, only then do we start mass production.

Balsa
Raw materials used to produce our floats are balsa-wood and polyurethane. These materials are cut and reduced into blocks; each block is weighed one by one.   This is very important with the Balsa since only the lightest and softest is suitable for our series Pro, the flagship of the Tubertini float range.


Further on, there’s the turning, a process that is completed by state of the art machines. Bodies and bulbs are shaped by the use of an abrasive grindstone. Then, on these bulbs a hole is drilled in which the stems (made of steel, cane, glass fiber or carbon) are set and glued.  The Gluing operation is made using particular resins. This operation is fundamental and if it isn’t done very carefully (using the exact kind of glue in the right quantity, and the skill of placing the stem exactly aligned on bulb) could jeopardize the outcome of the following finishing phases.

The semi-finished floats after having been placed on the dedicated plate, are now ready to enter into the painting room. Floats are painted by immersion: now, by the use of colors, combining and during this very delicate operation the quality and the right density of paint is essential, as well as the immersion lift speed, the right drying times and the temperature inside the painting room which must all be constant and according to the float model.

Balsa
Once out of painting department floats are marked one by one then manually pierced again for the further introduction of antennas which are carefully selected. Before being set they are checked one by one (rejecting the wrong ones) and placed on plates to be painted with our fluorescent paints so they are very brilliant and visible in the water.


At this point, after several finishing operations, the careful and meticulous quality control (checked float by float) ensures that only perfect floats will arrive to packaging and storage.
