So Steve doesn’t fill the holes in on the back of a hybrid feeder like Tommy does. 🤔

Does it depend on the depth of water you're fishing in?

I wasn't sure when I first considered what Mr Pickering indicated about the blocking off on the bottom of the holes on the hybrid, but kind of made sense...

Obversely Mr Ringer and Guru are no mugs, and Boddington isn't silly deep either.....It's one of them....:unsure:

I have always wondered what the difference is between a Hybrid and Banjo feeder. Is it just the shape?

Strangely I have had a lot of success using a Banjo but I think I have yet to catch with a Hybrid.

From Steve....

"The holes and slots in the side allow the water in to a degree. We found when testing that no holes or slots meant the bait didn't break down. A large part of it remained stuck in the bowl.
The only reason I can see you'd want to glue the holes is to try and stop the pellets breaking down."
