Me too Neil, Mark uses their stuff I know, and he's as honest as the day is long, he'll give you a fair appraisal of their stuff

Shaun Hodges has a very good track record with producing good baits, the original Hinders blitz and flamin' squidz I believe were developed by him, I've used both and caught plenty on them as have many others no doubt. No reason why the West Country baits would not be decent either. I might try them as need some help catching at the mo!

Thanks Deano, as said had a bag of 10mm delivered to-day, very oily and strong smell,intend to use small qty's as feed via pva bags, and on the hook. I think the general quality of pellet has fallen of late, hopefully these will give me more confidence.

I've been trying the 10mm pellets and No 2 boilies the back end of last season, and this one. I had a couple using the boilies but nothing so far on the pellet. A caveat on my last point is that I may be fishing swims that don't contain any barbel.

I know of a couple of chaps who do well on the Severn using WCB products.

Ordered the Elips pellets in two sizes after following this thread. Also a bag of their Barbel boilies. Had a Hants Avon double within 30 mins on the boilie and small bag of pellets. Thanks to all who made the recommendations.

Interestingly enough received top up today and definate change in colour from last supply. Colour now more like original elips...reddish tinge.

Do WBC have a website as my search turns up only two stockists who sell their baits? Thanks

They seem OK'ish, don't seem to be any better than ordinary pellets as far as bite getters, currently using Sonubaits Bloodworm dumbells, and they do seem to have a more instant response, which for the roving angler is a real benefit. Seems to be as good as meat in interest, without having to worry about if the blighter has nicked the meat

Not cheap though.
