Haith's Liquid Robin Red

Tuesday, 17th February 2015

“A liquid version of our flagship bait ingredient is something we have been looking at for some time but now we can truly say, this is the bee’s knees.” – Ken Townley
It's not every day we get to launch a legend in a different format but Liquid Robin Red® wasn't built in a day, it was built (field tested) over an 18 month period. Was the wait worth it? We think so.
It's not unusual for baits to be field tested - in fact the testing process has become an important part of doing one's due diligence, a necessary and essential part of any bait creation. Many of our "Approved Bait Firms" go to amazing lengths to field test and develop new baits and we wouldn't dream of launching a product onto the market without matching their dedication to getting things right. It's taken us 18 months to bring Liquid Robin Red (LRR) to market. 

There are a number of Liquid Robin Red products already on the market and we're big fans of a small number of them. For us it's relatively easy to see which ones contain acceptable levels of Robin Red. One major bug bear remains for us, and that's the fact that we (as a fishing collective) don't seem to like publishing the percentage inclusion rate of Robin Red on packaging/the internet nor in our marketing. We (Haith's Baits) try annually to encourage bait firms to come clean about Robin Red inclusion rates and some, more each year it has to be said, accept our advice and make it clearer. 

With that in mind the first thing I'd like to point out is that our Liquid Robin Red contains 20% Robin Red. If any company has a greater responsibility to focus purposely on the optimum pulling power of Robin Red in a liquid, it's Haith's. In our trials, 20% worked best; however, that's not saying that Robin Red won't work in liquid form at, say, 10% or 15%, it all depends on what's being added to the inclusion rate and whether (or not) those ingredients add value to the combined mix. Our goal was to create a liquid that screamed Robin Red. Others, we appreciate, have different goals and that's what makes bait making such a fascinating art/science.

Our “Approved Bait Firms” use genuine Robin Red and we encourage you to experiment with their liquids as well as ours (look for the Robin Red/Haith’s logo).
Our message is simple: when it comes to buying any Robin Red product – shop with an “Approved Bait Firm” or shop direct with Haith’s. 

What we think you'll like most about Liquid Robin Red (LRR) is its versatility; add in liquid form to boilies; pellet and particle mixes; stick and spod mixes. It's PVA Friendly and, as stated above, it contains 20% Robin Red straight off the [TOP SECRET] production line. 
The first 50 Liquid Robin Red customers receive a free 500g bag of our new Robin Orange SuperSoft Pellets:

PS. This morning Ken Townley shared extra PVA trial information with me:

This first photo shows a small PVA bag after being filled with a blend of LRR and LRG (hence the brown colour). It was filled on Friday 13th at 09.00h:

This photo shows the same bag exactly 72 hours later...
