These unique 12mm dumbell shaped Hook Baits have been carefully balanced with cork dust to counteract the hook weight.
This makes them behave more naturally, leading to more bites and better hook holds. They are extremely tough and durable and are perfect for fishing over beds of pellets or boilies, or on top of silt or weed. If you feel that the fish are being 'ultra crafty' and ejecting your standard round hook baits, a switch to these Balanced Dumbells can often produce the goods.
There are definitely times when standard round hook baits can lose their effectiveness and a switch to a different shape can often produce the goods. These pellet shaped hook baits offer a viable alternative to standard round hook baits and when mounted on a slightly longer hair and fished over a bed of pellets, they can often make the difference between success and failure!
Their shape not only makes them very difficult for the fish to eject, but coupled with their added buoyancy due to the inclusion of cork dust, they are also superb for fishing over the top of silt or weed. TheyÂ areÂ also very durable andÂ will last for many hours without being nibbled away by nuisance fish, Crayfish or diving birds. Definitely worth considering when the going gets tough!
Try mounting the dumbell on the hair long-ways. This will enter the carp's mouth easier, but will spin around on ejection thus making it more difficult for the carp to eject the hook.
