Is it one that the line goes through the centre of the drifter?

I must admit I make my own with a boom 8-)

It can, but you basically lifts free of the surface when it gets closer in. Its not a issue even when you have a fish on.

Like Jason I make my own, but before that had used the fox one with the boom and never had tangles. Make sure your line is greased well and keep tension to the float in light changing winds especially with pet below. (Or use PP braid).

I use carbon tube for mine gluing a swivel to attach the bottom to the line. The top of tube above vane has a rubber top which I push a size 5 diamond swivel into. This is firm enough to hold on the cast and will pull out on setting the hooks. No fun with playing a pike at range via the float. Should be able to do that to the ET one.
