Cherry Virus Wafters with Booster Liquid. The Eclipse Baits wafters have been developed to give the angler a massive edge by containing a high proportion of basemix and the optimal level of floatant it really is hard to see any physical difference between the wafters and free bait whilst the attractors have been matched to the freezer bait exactly. Wafters have always been an excellent hookbait alternative to bottom baits by counter acting the weight of the hook which makes them behave more like a free bait when bottom displacement occurs and for fishing over silt or low lying weed, they are also excellent for trapping delicate feeding fish on some of the tougher venues leading to very secure hook holds further back in the mouth. As a guide we have found an average size 6 such as a wide gape type pattern creates a proper crittically balanced / slow sinking hookbait whereas an average size 8 might need a tiny split shot or blob of putty to achive the same result.
Well what can we say we honestly thought the virus could not be bettered, since its inception over 15 years ago ( and still going strong) its caught 1000s upon 1000s of fish including an enormous amount of pb’s but there was still a amount of anglers that preferred a sweet smelling boilie so we set out to find a fruit/sweet type of aroma for the virus , we tried 8 different extracts but none were equal to the original virus we then found the fish had a liking for a cherry extract, that was over 2 years ago when tested we found it was far more effective with a extra inclusion of glm on top of what was all ready in the base it also worked better with a powdered palatant as well as 3 other additives one giving a synergistic effect all combining to take this boilie to the next level, we then embarked on a very intensive testing program that resulted in various changes we found that even a mil change to the cherry extract made a massive difference to the catch rate once happy with the recipe we gave it a wider test mainly over star lane fishery the results have been spectacular as the catch reports have shown it is now available in 14mm and 18mm fresh and stabilised special orders of 12,16,20 and 24 are available in a minimum 20 kilos,we can also do the bait in a short term preserved for trips abroad.
