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 Preston Innovations Super Pellet Pump…

THIS handy little gizmo allows you to prepare perfect soft pellet hook baits in under 30 seconds, without preparing more than you need.

You can even pump fresh pellets mid session if you need to top up with hook baits.

Designed by match ace Andy Findlay, complete with a clear body so that you can see your pellets, a hardwearing seal and a robust handle.

It comes complete with ‘maximum pellet’ and ‘maximum water’ marks to ensure you get ‘perfect consistency’ bait, every time.

It looks pretty simple to use too once you’ve had a couple of practice runs too. Check out the ‘how to’ video on the Preston Innovations website if you are not sure.

Price: £9.99.
