I have found that a cube of paste the same size as the Corkball is about the right ratio. I.e. a 12mm diameter Corkball will need about a 12mmx 12mm x12mm cube of paste.

13mm corkballs for 15/16mm baits will be nice and bouyant ive found baits made with 12s can tend to lean over abit

The Cc Moores cork balls are a bit of an odd size. Im sure that most people use 10mm or 12mm for the majority of their baits, but I think that cc Moores recommend 11mm, which very handily they seem to be just about the only people who sell them, as I think their finished size is 15mm where as a more std finished size is 16mm

Theres a guide on the CCMoore website on the page where you buy the rollers. Generally 12mm corkball for 15mm pop up etc

If one was to buy the cc moore rolling tool gadget for pop ups, does anyone know if there is a guide for what size cork balls to buy for it? Assuming 12mm sort of size? Had a look on their website but haven't found any size guide.
I always used to make my own bottom baits, especially in my Ouse barbel days, but have become lazy of late. I've got a couple of reasonable wafter and bottom bait recipes, but never ventured into pop ups...

I did a batch of 50 recently and used about a quarter of one eggs worth of paste. You need hardly any for each hookbait/ corkball

Half a kilo of base mix might give you three quarters of a kilo of paste. You use a tiny pinch on each hookbait. So unless you are intending to hand them out to strangers. Id stick with a one egg mix as suggested.

A shed load. You use a tiny amount of mix so your best off making a one egg mix or you will I'll have enough cork balls to last you a decade.

Great guide. Thanks.

Been making my own bait for while but never done cork ball before. Theyve come out looking ace. Cheers 👍
