Can't believe there's a bait with this name

In all seriousness though, These do actually look pretty good.
I'd give em' a go.
Don't waste your money. There's a thread on it here...
An interesting read. What originally had me interested after watching the video was being able to mold them or tear them apart for a bigger or smaller hookbait to suit any occasion, Plus being able to roll them to represent a maggot looked really cool. You're right though, a lot of people including yourself reckon they're no good. I usually fish on a club water which sometimes really struggles to produce on even normal pellets so I guess I'll skip on these unless I can get them for a real steal of a price to test out for myself.
You can rip them in half, put them into any shape you want, but testing on our club waters did nothing, not a nibble. Remove the thing and replace with maggot or caster and fish on.
I'm not sure how your local fishes, But mine is very depleted for stock (Maybe 10-15 Carp, 1 or 2 small shoals of Bream, Obviously some Roach and lots of Perch). It's normal for people to go there and catch only 3-4lb in fish in 6-8 hour sessions. They're all so weary when it comes to unnatural baits such as pellets, boilies and so forth so these are certainly going to be a hard pass for me after hearing that.
Our club waters consist of 2 lakes, both fairly well stocked but lake 2 having the bigger species. They both hold the following...
Roach, Perch, Gudgeon, Ide, Bream (and skimmers), Barbel, Koi, Crucians, Tench and Carp. The Carp in lake 1 go to around 20lb. In lake 2 they go to upper 20's with a couple of 30's. Out of all those species and a couple of days testing, not one bite on them and that's using pole, waggler, tip rod and Carp gear.
Catch rate can be from 6lb a session up to 100lb+ if the Carp are up for it then it's anyone's guess.
So is he saying the fish will eat it and it back into the peg. Don't seem right to me that.
