Hi Jon,
Self serving or not, it sure brought some needed life into the bait section. Testing and feedback from forum users will probably show how good it is. Anyway, I like that it is something a bit new, the whole bait business is a bit stagnant and could use a kick up the backside.

Totally agree with that Mark, when stalking I've seen carp go right up to a wafting hookbait then spook off it at the last minute. After seeing that several times I always want my hookbaits with some buoyancy but touching the bottom.

HiMark . . or other S2 users.

Silly question perhaps, but . . . being a tight git and having the added expense of overseas shipping costs I'm in the habit of reusing my popups(scent from hell) after each session.
Would there be any sense in reusing the S2s or would it be the case that a lot of the initial magic has gone once they have been in the water for the night ?

Great stuff, can you do the balanced baits in all the range or just the s2?

Yes mate they are totally weightless. They might just hover over the hook, but likely just touching bottom.

I don't personally like wafters, which is why we don't actually make them. I don't want a hook bait flying up into the air when a big carp moves, as it 'marks' it as dangerous when they see it tethered to a lead. I want the weight out, but not for it to be flying around if a roach farts. I over weight my pop ups for the same reason. A carp has quite a suck. To much 'waft' is not a great thing on a tethered rig.

It's also the reason the naked chod is so effective... That's the only rig I will critically balance. It's not tethered to a lead.

Jeysus that Starys has put some size on. A mate had that out at K1s 1st ever 40.

Please put a photo up of that 'The one'. If it's the fish I am thinking about I saw that at low 20 a long time ago and it really was stunning...

Hi mark, I know your mad busy and cant answer pms so thought it might be easier to get you on here. Do you do wafters in your range of baits, I can see the s2 has balanced bottom baits, are they basically wafters or do they actually sit on the bottom like a slow sinking bait?

Is that a pop up Jon? You seem to want to draw me back into something there, something that I've not even said, but some one else. I was talking to people who have pm'd me Jon, who's pm's I have read, but could not reply to. So I put it into one post. I also answered why, the two people had both wrote about their mouths welling up. It's nothing that has not been said before. You just did not see it, that's all. I'm in such a great mood today Jon, and that will continue.

As far as a selling exercise... Let's get some thing right here Jon. I have made not a penny from this forum. I have lost money. The foreign lads will testify that some paid for one tub of pop ups and UK postage... But were sent four tubs, at Euro signed for rates. Everyone else got enough freebies, to more than wipe out any profit.

During the same time, I made a lot of profit from Faceache and Instagram, like a lot, lot more to. If it was an advertising process, I'd be writing this on Faceache or Insta, for 100,000 anglers to see it... Not you and 500 others Jon. What you are saying does not even make sense if you know all that.

But honestly, don't let all that stop you 'Sherlock'.

Have a great evening again Jon. If I wanted to sell stuff, I'd be posting stuff like this below on Instagram Jon with the message from the captor attached... Not talking to you lot about it. That's simple maths Jon. I'm actually doing your forum a lot of good Jon, numbers are up. That's good for this forum, even if it's not for certain members.

"Hi Mark, just a quick update...
Its been a very successful first season for me on Horton K1.
Last week I had 5 fish, including the lake biggie "Starys" at 53lb 6oz,,, A true English 50+! I also caught a fish called "The One", 36lb which is a fully plated mirror. Many many thanks for the superb hook baits, and helping me to fulfil my dreams! Regards Martin"

Hi Mark

After Boycie's post I thought I was up for a bit of detective work, always fancied myself as a bit of a Sherlock as well.
After your post it seems it's all been a boilie flogging excersise, very clever indeed, you certainly duped me and put my Sherlock powers to shame.
However I wish you well with your endevour, but you could have added so very much to the forum, unfortunately for me your posts will always now come across as more self serving than informative now. Which is a shame considering the "younger" audience posters enjoy on here

Best

Jon

Got my order, thanks Mark.
It's a lid on the lakes here so no fishing for a while but I did a small tank test, as I know you really rate tank testing
Just soaked the bait for a few minutes and poured a bit of the water in a tube ending under the gravel. It did cause a fair bit of digging so it's definetly something in there that work.
