The range has a version to suit everyone, from carp catchers to bream bashers and one of the most appealing aspects of them is their fast breakdown rate. You can read more about this here: http://www.haiths.com/haiths-baits/supersoft-pellets/

You will note the emphasis we put on this fast breakdown aspect of our SuperSoft Pellets as we feel this gives them a big advantage over traditional trout pellets, which break down much more slowly. Here is one way that you can really take advantage of the fast breakdown, which at the same time provides an excellent method for getting loads of attraction into your swim.
Here you can see that in a tub I have glugged some Robin Orange and Paprika SuperSofts with Liquid Robin Red and Sweet Paprika.
Put the lid on the tub and give it a good shake to coat the pellets with LRR. Now leave the pellets to stand for about an hour in order to soak up all the Liquid Robin Red.
The boosted Pellets are now ready to use and they can be introduced into your swim in the normal way, i.e. fired out of a caty, introduced by Spomb or by spod, or via a bait boat.
Here you see a bowl of Robin Gold and Five Spice SuperSoft Pellets and alongside is a big bottle of one of my favourite liquid attractors, Sanchi Tamari Organic Soy Sauce. This stuff is superb, being a rich source of natural attractors that the carp seem to adore.
Place the pellets in a tub and pour on 100ml of the Sanchi and then give the tub a good shake. Leave to stand for an hour or so. In this time the pellets will soften and start to breakdown, but they will not do so completely.
In fact they will only break down to the extent that they will clump together to form a cake of compressed pellet and Sanchi attraction. This can be introduced with a catapult or you can bait the margins by hand. The result is the ball of concentrated attraction that acts as a diner gong to any passing carp.
If you leave the pellets in the glug overnight they will start to break down still further and as a result can be fused mixed together.
I like to use a baiting spoon to introduce the fused pellets to my swim. You will find that they hold together remarkably well out of the spoon but as soon as the clump of glugged pellets hits the surface it breaks up and scatters, leaving a nice wide pattern of infused SuperSoft attraction on the lake bed.
I used these tricks at Le Queroy three winters ago when I enjoyed a late February visit to the Napoleonic Lake. The pellets were still on test and frankly the conditions were dead set right against me - freezing cold nights with a bitter cold east wind during the day - yet I still managed to put a few decent carp on the bank including three forty pound mirrors. You will not be surprised to learn that as I write I am looking at a pile of tackle and bait that is about to go into the van ready for a repeat late February visit to the same venue. Watch this space to see if I can manage a similar result.
Spring is just around the corner so get busy preparing your plans for the forthcoming campaign on your favourite carp lake. I hope part of that planning will include one of the Liquid Robins and a bag or two of the SuperSofts…You'd be crazy not to!
