Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard is the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week. Here's his lowdown on the Bait-Tech Juice Dumbells …


Based on Bait-Tech’s sweet, creamy Juice flavour, a winner for many species, carp and bream included, the new Dumbell hook baits come in Pop-Up, Wafter and Sinker varieties.

They also come in 8 and 10 mm sizes, so you have a lot of bases covered whether you are punching one out with a method feeder or a straight lead and PVA bag set-up. You can hair rig them, band them or bayonet them.

Bait-Tech offer more options to find out what will work best on the day by offering four fluoro colours in a single pot. If one colour is quiet, try another.

So many species seem to respond to cream baits, these sound like a winner, especially with the Wafter and Pop-up options.

Price: £3.75 a pot.
