Not ******** in anyones bait fridge, but personally I've lost all confidence in hinders elips.
Fair enough Neil, I guess a lot of it also comes down to confidence. I can honestly say that my catches haven't suffered whatsoever.
I was a little alarmed at first when the old elliptical pellets ceased, but I kept faith and with all my summer barbel fishing done in clear water I have watched the fishes behaviour when my hinders pellets are introduced and am as happy today as I have always been with them.

Regards John

Glad to hear it John.

Another pellet of Hinders, which I liked was the 3mm high betain, which I used to blend with small and medium elips; however this is another pellet which has disappeared off the market

It says elips on the bag in the photo?
Yes they are round unlike the old elipticle pellet, but the last lot of so called elipse pellets I had from Hinders lost their colour in no time and didnít seem as oily as the elipse Iíve had before.
The WCB pellets are what I expected, only as you say round.
