They are good baits but not £16.99 good, plenty of others out there that perform as well.

Youíll get a few people chirp up soon saying how ingredients and quality is worth it.what a load of bullocks. Just being mugged off, knowingly, but mugged off all the same

I used to love the baitroom but I will never pay that amount. It's just taking us for fools personally.

Just seen that the baitroom has gone up to £16.99 for the pop ups and £4.50 for the booster. I don't know about anyone else but I think these prices are rediculous.

Iím not sure I bought 2 pots of the signature pop ups in 14 and 16mm for the pure fact of them being washed out in colour and multicoloured in the pot ( Pain in the arse buying 3 pots of the same flavour just to have different colours)

Never had issues with stickies pop ups, overly buoyant but never had them out over 24 hours. Still have some from 5 years ago so not sure if they changed their recipe?

oooohhhh, there is a thing, expiry dates on liquids who does them

Buy little and often, and from a reputable source, should be ok then.

High Attract specials, UB baits, PJPU's ,CC Moore NS+1

Glad I'm not the only one with sticky wafters


Also tried some DNA milky malts and they seem good buoyancy

I've used the bait room for a few years, but I think the prices are a complete joke now. £15.99 for a pot of pop ups. There is not they are quality products but I can't see how he can justify that much. I think having just seen that I will be making a change.

Unless your " matching the hatch" how important is the base mix? Surely as long as the attractors do the job then it's a hooked fish. Is it important to have a top class high protein base mix in a pop up?

Had some great catches on the sticky krill pop ups (the brown version). The pink version didn't score that well and there buchy berry was horrible. I Assume each 'famous' brand has good and bad stuff

Haven't used many different brands.
But in no particular order, sticky baits, DT bait have always been ok for me.

Proper job pop ups are the most buoyant I've used and done ok with them too.

Buoyancy wise nothing even comes close to Proper Jobs IMO. Quality wise I'm a snob so home made ones, either on Shilhams chod mix or corkballs come out tops. That said, Jason Hayward's 'specials' are very, very good

What's everyone's favourite pop ups? Mine come from either the bait room or scientific baits.
