Following a discussion with one of our consultants it was decided we should design a product that would enable anglers to fish more effectively on blanket weed. Whilst chod rigs have enabled us to position hookbaits on weed without fear of the quality of their presentation, they are very limiting when trying to deliver loose feed into an area where your hookbait is situated. Their fundamental mechanics mean the only way to increase the amount of attraction around your hookbait is to apply liquids to the hookbait itself, making a chod rig a ‘single hookbait’ approach rig. This can be effective in many applications but we felt there had to be more effective ways to present baits over blanket weed - so we designed the Weedbeater Mix.
Weedbeater Mix is a light, fluffy stick mix that combines molasses meal, mini pellets, buoyant, active and soluble ingredients and a chosen base mix to deliver a combination of highly attractive food particles directly around and underneath your hookbait.
Required components needed; narrow pva mesh, rig with length set at estimated depth of weed, critically balanced or slow sinking hookbait and weedbeater Mix.
When the Weedbeater Mix is compressed into a narrow pva mesh stick, the rig is threaded through until the hook pulls tight into the end of the stick. Once the rig is cast into the swim the semi-buoyant ingredients ensure it will gently settle on top of the weed while the pva mesh melts, leaving a compact pile of stick mix sat on top of the weed and underneath your low density hookbait. However soft or fluffy the weed is, the critically balanced mix ensures perfect presentation every time you cast - taking the doubt out of fishing on blanket weed.
Once released from the melted pva mesh Weedbeater Mix reacts with water, fizzing up and down through the layers whilst releasing powerful attractors that will attract fish and pull them down to your perfectly presented hookbait sat on an irresistible pile of stick mix. This gentle fizzing action is incredibly effective at attracting inquisitive fish to an area where the Weedbeater Mix and hookbait are presented - ready for an ambush.
Live System Weedbeater Mix contains a significant amount of Live System base mix making it ideal for use with Live System boilies. For an ideal presentation why not choose one of our new ‘wafters’ which are produced in the same four flavours as our freezer baits, shelf life bait and Weedbeater Mixes.Light, fluffy stick mixSimply thread onto your hooklink like a normal PVA stickFizz’s up and down in the waterSettles on top of the weed
