I'm sure there are probably other factors at play Re your friends requirements but thought it worth mentioning that DNA bulk are very competitive and the European distribution centre is in Germany.

Seems like DNA & Sticky rule the roost, nowadays, followed by Baitworks and other smaller bait firms. NASH, Mainline, Dynamite & CCMoore are mainly for the photo models

I know DNA do keep people informed if they want bait ordered by telling people they have 3-5 day wait for boilies,also they told me they will not send a bait out if its going to sit in a warehouse over a weekend to be delivered Monday because that was a concern for me when I switched to using them.

Ccmoore are really inconsistent imo....or at least they were when i gave up with them about 5 years ago

So neither

Genuinely, handcraft, sticky, dna.....all much better than both nash and ccmoore. If money is an issue, id rather have less of a quality bait than loads of rubbish

Allegedly - a few companies do it to stop,wastage because of deliveries. If you think a bait will be rolled, into a freezer. Out of the freezer, courier to tackle shop. Possibly delayed, so defrosts. Into tackle shop freezer. Tackle shop sells, defrosts again, sits around in courier unit, back into customers freezer.

Could be mouldy before the bag is opened, and the bait do will be blamed for mouldy bait.

Yes mate, I meant the ones canal carper was referring to, the 3 for 2 ones that were on sale a while back. The instant range or whatever they were called. I remember using the scopex squid years ago , decent bait that

The baits hes talking about weren't available in freezer, only shelf life.

I've heard from multiple reliable sources that the nash Freezer bait is exactly the same bait too. It's all shelflife.

I used to be a nash man until I smelt the same underlying smell in any bait I used from them,switched to sticky krill and done better than ever on not heavily fished waters. I know that doesn't answer your question but go for the odyssey In my opinion.

Mate of mine wants readymades and those 2 brands are the only ones available, for this bulk deal in Germany. Both companies move large volumes, but quality wise, not so sure who to trust.

Im very sceptical regarding readymades and their quality, and thats why I roll my own, and have been doing so for the past 15years, so i know exactly what quality ingredients go into my bait.

Cheers for the replies
