Forgot to say, it was almost 15kg of each - small, medium and large.
I feel like crying!

P.S. I don't remember you trying to give them away on BFW.

Tried quite a few times to give them away. Me and a few mates did some panic buying when they were discontnued.

Over the years, caught more barbel on boilies and traditional baits on my local stretches.
All the best,
Bob
Please tell me this is a wind up?

Nearly made me cry too Anthony! I'm eking out my last few Hinders originals as sparingly as I can

Salips well if you ever need to clear more space I'm there Bob.

Hinders Chris. Why change because of the shape, the recipe is still the same.
I cut a flat on 2 large cylindrical elips and glue them back to back on the hair.
Job done and results no different

Next time I delve to the bottom of the freezer, I'll look you out a couple of kilos of Salips Clive. Also have a kilo of the eliptical halibuts (16mm - yes eliptical 16's) sold as Bfw Halips and a great catcher of fish.

Three 10mm elips (new shape) drilled and hair-rigged worked for me last week.

Bob, if you're ever getting rid of anything else, you know who we are!

Bob-does freezing pellets have any real effect on them in your opinion?
I asked Hinders the same question, & their reply was a bit...vague, to say the least!
Regards,
Rod
