The Dynamite Marine Halibut Durable Hookers come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: 4, 6 and 8 mm hookable pellet baits.

Ingredients: oily fishmeal pellets.

My verdict: Dynamite’s Marine Halibut range is responsible for catching a lot of fish every year, from stillwater carp and catfish to river barbel.

These high-leakage hooker pellets are new additions to the range.

They are soft enough to be hooked directly or hair-rigged, feeling durable enough to withstand the rigours of casting.

The sizes in the range suggest that they have been formualted for pole, feeder and waggler work, but I would also use the 8 mm size for targeting barbel or chub where I thought a quick bite was on the cards, as they will soften up with time.

Price: £3.25 a pot.
