Thatís really useful to know, as Iím also rolling 15-16mm and the last test batch I did at only one min definitely came out too soft. So that confirms itís the additions that are softening it up as I suspected. I will throw in a bit of whey to compensate. Cheers for coming back to me.

Are you rolling quite small pop ups? Cos Iíve never managed to get the baits to harden off enough when only boiling for a minute, but to be fair I am adding other soluble powdered ingredients. I think BAF suggest longer boiling times for that mix.

Had another go today with baf mix and got it spot on. what i did was mix it up and leave in the fridge for an hour. i then rolled it out and got the water to a boil. i then turned it down so there were just one or two bubbles coming to the surface. after that added 20 baits instead of the whole lot. left in for 1 minute or untill they started to misshape a bit. Was around the one minute mark when they were just starting to mis shape. took them out and now air drying and they are exactly spot on just how they came off the rolling table. hope that helps some of you who may also be having problems

Christian gave me a good tip. Add around 5g of Corkdust (0.5-1.1mm I used ) per 100g of pop up mix this way they roll even better and donít mishape even with sensitive mixes.

I doubt it to be honest. I went to the trouble of buying a digital thermometer and making batches with exact water temperatures. Never made a jot of difference. I think itís the mix. Iíve had batches just like you, they are rolled perfectly off of the table, smooth and round. Then I set them, I wonít say boil as I was putting them in water under boiling temp, and they still on occasions misshaped.

Thing is itís a decent mix for buoyancy and takes all the additional ingredients well. So Iím more than happy to use it.

I had an absolute nightmare with the Shilham mixes too, did everything by the book and they all warped and came out oval etc. Despite its critics Polaris is one of the best Iíve used

Make the paste as normal and leave it in the fridge overnight. Then use a nozzle a couple of mm smaller than the table youíre using to roll the baits

Iíve had the BAF mix do this to me on occasions and Iíve never really got to the bottom of it. Iíve given up worrying now. I am thinking of giving the cc Mooreís a go to see if thereís any difference as I really rate their hard hookbait mixes.

I think Ian has said in the past that he likes the shillam mixes, but a friend of mine had nightmares with it. So I guess itís a personal thing.

Lads, any idea how i can get my pop ups a bit rounder. they come out perfectly off the rolling table and then i stop the water boiling and put them in straight afterwards for 1 minute. they tend to come out looking a bit like the moon with small craters in them. am i doing anything wrong. im using baf mix and making the mix as stiff as possible to the point i can hardly squash it. they roll fine its just the boiling stage it tends to go wrong or something.

I will be doing it Saturday so thatís good. Just so I know though youíre saying if I needed it to be a bit longer say hypothetically couldnt roll it until next Thursday I can throw it in freezer and itíll be fine once thawed back out?
