I use Rohacell super hard foam bodies that have the same density and buoyancy as the balsa bodies.
A fibreglass stem goes completely through the foam and completely into the hollow tip, this build method gives a great balance and better overall strength.
One of the main advantages of using high tech foam is it will not absorb water when the float is damaged, unlike materials such as balsa which may rot over time.
So my floats will last for many years – much longer than the average float.
I use a high quality waterproof epoxy resin especially formulated for the foam used in JaZZ floats.
I individually paint and varnish the float bodies over a four day process.
