Hi.
Ive been having a look at what works best with differant hard baits tooday in the garage.
I found the guru bayonets ok for mini wafters but not easy to push in for band ums.
What attachments do you use for differant baits ?
Cheers

For bandums, wafters, pellets etc, I use bait bands. For a standard boilie, I will use a bayonet or a standard hair rig.

I use the Korum quick-stops when hair rigging. But on the feeder and I fancy a change I use this type of band. Easy to put on/take off for bait changes...

You're right, the Band'um's have a particularly hard skin (hence they recommend to band these baits)....If you SLIGHTLY pierce one end of the Band'um with a quickstop needle (or similar) you'll find the Guru bayonets will easily push into the Band'um using the previous piercing(y)

Your old eyed hooks being used to make pins. Use a pair of side cutters and remove the bend, you now have a bait pin once tied on a hair, brilliant for pushing into a small boilie. I use 18's for 6mm boilies.
Quite a few years ago l changed my method for attaching pellets, boilies, artificial baits in many forms, even live worms on the same hair rig. This was published and l will share with you all free of charge.😃20190315_192027.jpg20190315_192057.jpg
Hope you can see it.
I do not use any drills or needles except for the worms and use NO pegs in any forms.

Use a 3.2mm Gardiner band on a hair, it's a very effective way of hooking most baits. You can use it with meat, pellet, corn or even a bunch of maggots. You can simply band pellets/wafters or drill a hole in them and pull the band into the pellet with a bait needle. For corn and meat simply put the bait on a needle, stretch the band and keeping it stretched pull the bait over it and then release the band and pull it back into the bait. For a bunch of maggots use a 3 or 4 arm bander, grip a bunch of maggots and slide the band over them.

Ukzero do you use quick stops for soft baits
Depends on the size of the bait, but yes, I use quick stops for paste when forming paste into pellet or into small boilie type baits and luncheon meat.

Nice and simple for me. For mini boily/BandUm type baits I push a fine baiting needle through and pull the bait onto a hair loop. The bait grips the loop/knot. Benefit is that if caught in the landing net the bait pulls off rather than breaking the hair.

Bandums is a bit of a clue :D
Saying that we have all tried to push a quick stop throught.
For harder boilies I use a boilie drill, if softer push through with neddle first - then push stop through.
