MEDUSA MATCH

£3.99
Pair of shallow, clear plastic pots, also supplied with tapered adaptors and plugs. The small capacity pots have plain lids and four semi-cut perforations in their bases, which are opened up by pushing their centres out. This allows controlled drip-feeding with small baits. The pots can be slid on slim match kits direct, or a tapered adaptor can be used. Removing the lids for filling is fiddly and time consuming, while plugging the perforations and discarding the lid makes it difficult to deliver bait without spilling it.
SCORE: 25/30


FRENZEE PRECISION PARTICLE

£4.99
Shallow and deep black plastic pots in a pack, which slot onto special Frenzee PTFE bushes. The latter are sold separately, along with a cutting tool that ensures a perfect fit. These pots sit low and are very stable, but due to the big diameter bush required for anchoring them, they only suit bigger bore power top kits. The pots have hinged, flip top lids with reduced central openings, which helps to prevent bait spillage while shipping the pole out. Nice idea but works out expensive with the essential extras.
SCORE: 25/30


PRESTON INNOVATIONS FEEDAPOT

£3.99
Shallow and deep, clear blue pots with a channelled attachment rim, which can be anchored on all types of top kits with the two rubber bands supplied. The pots clip on the special support rim and sit below the pole for added stability. This system allows either cup to be quickly positioned close to the pole tip, for spot on accuracy and easy usage. Having the top kit uppermost and the rubber bands stretched across the top of the pots helps to prevent feed spillage as the pole is shipped out to the required spot.
SCORE: 25/30


FOX MATCH SPRINKLE

£4.99
Shallow and deep pots that have different taper cross-slots underneath, allowing a secure slide-on fit to a wide range of 3 mm to 5 mm tip sections (other gauges are also available). These frosted grey pots have clip on lids with numerous perforations, which allow small baits like squatt, pinkie and micro pellet to be sprinkled enticingly over rigs while fishing. The lids can also be removed and are easy to cut larger openings in, should bigger baits be on the menu. Simple but very effective.
SCORE: 26/30


MIDDY SLIDE MINI

£2.99
Small and medium sized black cups with perforated grey clip on lids. They’re oval topped and have three sets of grooves underneath, to accommodate different types of top kits. As they come these cups suit sprinkling small baits like squatt, pinkie and micro pellet. With the lids removed larger offerings can be used, or it’s possible to cut around some of the lid perforations to form an inner opening, which also prevents spillage when shipping out. A tad harsh and tricky to fit on bigger diameter top kits.
SCORE: 26/30


BEST BUY

PRESTON INNOVATIONS DRIP FEEDER CAD

£2.99
A pair of compact pots made from frosted green coloured plastic, available in three gauges to suit all top kit configurations. They have ‘keyhole grooves’ underneath that lock onto tip sections – close to the bush end – for precise feeding. The clip on caps feature a unique slanted funnel inside, which allows controlled drip-feeding, without fear of spilling all the contents. This means small amounts can be introduced several times without moving the end tackle and also helps to prevent premature
bait loss.
