Years ago 'we' came up with the same sort of idea.

After rolling and boiling your baits roll them around in a mix of beaten egg, Betaine HCl and CSL liquid, then while still wet drop them in base mix powder and roll them in that before leaving to dry:wink:

I have a poor opinion of Nash since he reckons the key was so full of fish meals and then he stabilised it and said it's exactly the same apart from the preservative. Unless he has a miracle natural preserve it doesn't add up.

These looks like a expensive version of coating your hookbaits in oil or a thick glue and then dusting them in a powered additive. GLM, betaine, liver, etc and leaving them to dry. Couple of coatings and drying and it's the same thing.

I didn't have a close look, but you can air dry baits totally with no preservative, then as you have said, give them a glug in a glycerine sugar coating and dry that off.

I know a few bait companies were doing this to claim preservative free.

The boilies dont work in the same method as the cultured, the living skin as they call it on the cultured dissipated in the water supposedly bringing the carp down. Like David said £9.99 for 25 hook baits is a bit steep.

What price would you put on a bite? I pay £18 for 35 baits.

Naughty question that one, like asking a woman her age lol........ I recon we all spend £100's per bite.

As little as possible!

 

Yet goodness knows how many trips I have had since my last carp! If its 4 trips then that is £56 in petrol alone...

 

I can get 5kilos of boilies of a good quality bait for £30. I can supplement that with a spod mix using decent liquids in the water to spread in the currents, say £10 for 5litres of molasses.

There's no point going fishing if you have a Hookbait or rig that won't catch carp. Every little thing I can do to swing the luck balance my way I will try. My £18 a pot baits have saved a blank many many times

You can't put a price on confidence at the end of the day. Some guys might consider these 18 quid hookers to be a rip off but I know which ones you're using (assuming you'res till using the SHB's) and I don't balk at the price. Very, very good hook baits indeed.

ooooh! £18 for 35??? sorry bud but that smacks of desperation to me 🙁

you could also with a bit of time from yourself, make your own for probably cheaper than this. I do know which you use though and replicating them would be difficult. But you could make something just as special.

I have looked into it, even got someone to make em, but they're just not the same
