I recently have been using both the WCB and the Hinders 'Elipse'. I have had some success on the Hinders, but I drill mine, not keen on using glue. The WCB are a nice looking pellet, mid brown in colour and oily, however I find that on the hook they break down a little too quickly, but seem to have some fish pulling qualities loose fed or in a PVA mesh.

I would certainly give both a go, quality... the Hinders works out a little over 8 for 2 kilos, so reasonable.

Whoops, just binned 15kg of Hinders last run of Elips (the eliptical ones). Although some volunteers seemed happy enough to take them. Just couldn't justify the freezer space :-(

Just got fed up with them taking up space as still got some of the originals (the orange ones) in the freezer, along with some Bfw Salips (IMO a better bait).
Forgot to say, it was almost 15kg of each - small, medium and large.
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
