  1. well well, NOW who is running down baits that he knows naff all about? solar knock off? your showing your ignorance there buddy, the same team are making cherry's baits as were when they were 'partnered' with solar, the break up was all about the mark up that solar wanted to add and that you can take to the bank, i did quite an in depth look as to the why's and whatfor's for over 12 months before taking a leap of faith. as to the second bit of your statement, and "quoting out of context", i have made precisely two posts (not counting this one) and in neither one did i mention "getting heated", dont start out playing by your own rulebook cos "here be dragons" as they say i know your not CM cos your not in the same league but i would lay bets on you being a reincarnation of 'the carphauler' though.
  2. wouldnt let a little thing like that bother you bud, thats just chilly being chilly are you a Sticky rep, or one of their bait testers maybe? cos your sure defensive of them and it makes me wonder why. have i missed a trick? was there something that i was doing wrong when i use Manilla? i await the response with baited breath..... see wot i did there?
  3. my opinion is that Cell and sticky manilla are both absolute cack, i used them both for over a season and my catch rate went right down. but that coming from someone who is only bothered what a bait will do and not what a bait contains so dont jump down my throat eh!! IMO cherrycarp baits are doing the thing at the mo so are the number one bait for me
  4. if you can enjoy blanking then yes i was bud, fishing zigs on both rods and i snag a Jack pike while reeling in
  5. Woke up to this view early hours, 😁
  6. Loaded up and half hour to the lake 😉
  7. shame, i was getting into this topic, for what its worth i use both forceps and fingers. fingers to roll out a hook that is nicely in the lips and forceps for that rogue hook that gets taken a little to far back to get a thumb and finger on comfortably. there is a genuine reason for both (imo) and a time for both to come into their own. some people just wont be told tho, fyi my EXCLUSIVE venue does not insist on the use of forceps but waders? yes, for a good reason tho i would say that some of the more ridiculous rules come about thru personal preference of the more influential committee members playing God
  8. they say that 7" makes you feel like a maaan!! i think 'they' are wrong
  9. and that is true of a lot of lakes bud, we have a rule on my syndi, waders are a required piece of equipment!!! waders must be used when landing and returning fish, aprox 50% of the swims are a 2ft or more drop of the boards and a large portion of those the water is 3ft or more deep,,,,, lifting a carp in the sling would obviate the use of some very productive swims for me.
  10. hmm, tight fitting socks will slow down your circulation thereby depriving your feet of warm blood, defeets the object methinks
  11. ha!! couple of years? fish of a lifetime for most anglers Bud
  12. i have had both these and some by Thinsulate that were excellent and lasted for ages.
  13. from my personal POV the hate mostly comes from the absurd pricing structure, yes i realize about R&D costs, yes i am aware of marketing costs and yes i am aware about mark ups from manufacturer to shop but still. take hooks, nash and korda among others average price per hook of most styles £0.50p yet i can buy a comparable hook (often from the same manufacturer) for less at £0.30p. baits that are equally as good (if not better) for £s per kilo less. swivels, leaders and all other terminal tackle for as little as half price in most instances BUT they have not got the big name attached and that is where the carp snobbery kicks in, snobbery that is promulgated and widely encouraged by the big names, and that to me makes them no better than the street corner drug peddlers.
