Exactly, binding up all the attractors in egg and boiling is the worst thing for the attraction of a boilie. Itís only done to make them durable. Nonsensical to do this to pellets too.

Why not just use a pellet band on a hair for pellets?
I've used 14mm pellets on a band without a problem.
The larger Robin Reds are also pre drilled.

So all the attraction of a soluble pellet bound up and boiled with an egg? Doesnít sound that great to me.

I would go for the pre drilled pellets the match guys use, loads of options in a decent tackle shop. You can tie a normal hair then use a pellet hair stop.

Save dicking around with drilling, tieing and pellets going to mush -buy or make pellet boilies.
Far easier!
Easy to make out of halibut/pellet powder and an egg.

Good idea. I don't know what size their pellets are yet so I'll definitely try this if they are too small to drill.

What about a load of smaller pellets inside the tights and the whole lot on the hair?

Depending on the size, drill em. Heat the drill bit first to avoid cracking the pellet.

I fished pellets exclusively for a few seasons I found the best way was to pre-drill the pellets then mesh them in tights and just use your standard rig.
