answer 1
The line goes over the rod floater. It does not affect your casting in any way.

answer 2
The float is attached to the rod at the base where to rod goes into the "cork" handle. The line stays right where it is without a float.

You are correct that the float goes in front of your reel. The line does not go through it, it actually goes over it. I've used this on several rods, with a variety of different types of baitcasters (including low-profile bass reels) and have not had a single problem with having it on my rod.

No the line does not go through the rod floater. I use these on my rods, when I take out senior citizens fishing.

No...the float attaches around the rod. the line is still above the floater going into your line guide. the floater does not interfere with casting and does not rub the line.

No the line never goes through the floater. It stays above the floater. If it gets in the way you can always shave some of the float of with a knife. Reels fine there are 2 sizes small and large.

No, line needs to be free flowing. Sometimes it gets stuck on floater.

The line does not go through the float at all. Rather, the line would ride well above it.

answer 11
the line does not go through the floater. the line either hovers over it, or slides over it. It reels and casts smoothly with all my baitcasting reels.
