Just received my 2 tubs of pop ups today and the sample pack thrown in was tricknut in various sizes and shelf life. Herb in 20mm freezer. Nutriplex in 15mm freezer and k20 in 12 or 15mm (canít remember) in freezer. Thatís a fantastic array of a sample in my eyes! Really well packaged and labelled as well

It really is no big deal
We often just use whatever baits we have to hand for samples
Sometimes 20mm sometimes 15 or 12 or a mix!
This time of year 12mm baits are really popular so we just use them!!
Same bait same everything just different sizes!
If you had stated you wanted a certain size Iím sure our lads would have done it!
We often get asked for only freezer bait samples or only shelf life
All can be accommodated for

Everythingís right with lumps in the bait - the lumpier (whether nut, kelp,etc) the better imo.

Why didnít you ask for different sizes, although quite why you need to see each different size to check against your rigs is a bit beyond me. Just change the hair length or whatever. Mind you, I just use a size 4 for everything thoÖ..

If you wanted to actually go out fishing with a sample, why not get a kilo of the size you were after 🤷🏻‍♀️

You're being made to feel like your being awkward, very helpful, as stated 'some people'.

Edit, I also don't think a 1 size sample is representative of a range within a flavour, it simply hopefully proves the 12mm size is o.k.
I guess we need to be a tad more specific when ordering a sample and not make any assumptions. Personally I'd have another pack in the post to you, but thats me.

I have no doubt the full range is fine due to reputation however that isn't the point, and I'm not trying to be awkward or harsh with any of my comments, just honest, I have no ulterior motive

What's wrong with bits of Nut in your Boilie? You prefer Powder in your Bait?
Fortunately didn't see that (to an extent) with the Tricknut samples I got.

Of course it matters with the hooks and rigs being used. I'm assuming the pop ups and wafters are the same size so it's relative. Yikes.

Sorry, only just seen this...
The small size is no good for me due to the massive amount of Silvers.
I was hoping to get samples of the bigger sizes - 15 mm and 20mm.
Wasn't trying to be awkward or anything... don't think that's too much to ask to add 2 or 3 (literally) of the other sizes?

Why would size matter in a sample, wouldn't it be more to determine if you liked the look of the bait itself? I can confirm their 12 mm baits are 12mm and their 15mm baits are 15mm

There would have been 15mm samples of herb and probably 20mm Nutriplex in the sample pack too
Thatís why Iím a tad confused 😂

Especially as he says a bit further down howís heís impressed as he can see lumps of nut in it?

Come on Gav, you should be sending one of every bait, in every size, freezer and shelf life, matching hookbaits, etc,etc,etc

Some people 🙄
