I have had lots of fish on both abs wafters and hard hookers soaked for months in hydra K dip . UB corkballs decent as well

does vary mate, ive noticed this , the most recent batch i have are corkdust wafters, which are like pop ups. I use the wafters all the time, ive caught more on those than the UBaits ones just have to trim / adapt the baits, which i dont mind doing. Ive got them all in a pot which is got glug in it so the boyauncy varies anyway.

Must of changed the mix. The pop ups I used 2 yrs ago, 15mm on a Ronnie sunk like a brick without any putty

Intend to only use them to top snowmen, but have used 2 12mm on a Ronnie with a size 4 mugga and had to use a small lump of putty to get it to balance. They are also left glugging in l030 and HydraK glug so would have affected buoyancy

You could buy the paste and make your own hookbaits

Unfortunately Iíve found abs wafters to be rubbish. Great texture but the buoyancy is terrible. If you want any wafters or pop ups made contact Ryan at ub baits. Heís done me some mc nut and hydra k and I know heíll do the other baits Geoff does. Seen some 2tb he does. He gets all base mix and liquids for abs. His wafters/bobbers are the best imho

Asking on behalf of a mate. What are the hookbaits like Geoff is knocking out these days in terms of buoyancy, texture etc? Mainly for the Malarky and Krill base mixes. Last time i used them they were awful but that was about 15 years ago im hoping things may have improved since then.
