i heard halibut are bad for carp, cant be too sure on that as i dont know where i heard it from though........the sensas ones take some whacking imo for what you are looking for, do them in 6mm aswell which is a good size for short waggler work.

Ive used GJW Titmuss for bulk bait before by mail order. Just type it in google and they'll come up.

They do Skretting coarse pellets, low oil.

Agree with tigerbay. Skretting coarse pellets are better for pellet waggler. Avoid halibut pellets etc as they sink a lot quicker than the low oil stuff.

Buy Skrettings coarse pellets in 25 kilos sacks, you want 6 & 8mm.

This is the link you want

http://www.gjwtitmussshop.co.uk/acatalog/CARP_PELLETS.html

High oil pellets like trout or halibut are usesless sinking too fast.

IS it possible to fish more than one pellet on the hook when using the pellet waggler?

Ive had my hook straightened a couple of times where im going to fish and the Carp love pellets, so i was going to go for a slightly larger stronger hook but a 6mm wouldnt present well, 2 would be perfect though.

Let me know if this is a bad idea.

i'm not sure i understand the reasoning about your question above with regard to 6mm pellets and presentation.
When pellet waggler fishing i hair rig a pellet band to my hook, so it doesn't usually matter if i'm using a 4,6 or 8mm pellet.
As for your hook straightening, try a heavier guage hook, something like a size 14 drennan barbless carp, drennan barbless feeder or a kamasan B911.
To get 2 pellets ON your hook you would need to be using soft hook pellets which can have a tendency to fly off on the cast. Otherwise you would need to use 2 pellet bands. Also i can't see the benefit of 2 pellets as the fish don't hang around eyeing up your hook bait when pellet waggler fishing, the bites are pretty instant if you get your feeding right.

trout, marine, halibut are all bad for carp as they are all high oil! but trouts are worse as they break down slower than halibuts and the fish gorge themselves and cant feed till they digest meaning a poorly nutriotion fish
