The roots of the Fully Loaded range come from a long way back when I first started to play around with adding Liver to my mixes. I have always spoken about how liver has always been top of the list attraction wise for me over the years, mainly due to the undeniable feeding triggers this premium ingredient creates.
The conclusion of all these experiments over the years ended with the launch of the Livercracker powder an awesome additive that still fly’s off our shelves faster than we can make it. I coat my hookbaits in the Livercracker powder after glugging and let them dry off and boy does it look and smell amazing.
The thought of making a boilie with the liver was always in my mind it was just a matter of marrying it with the right ingredients and carefully balancing the subtle flavours that will make it a truly one of a kind bait and of course trying to make these premium ingredients affordable enough for us to launch a boilie.
We could of just stopped there I suppose and I’m sure the bait would have flown out the door but with an extended testing period of over 3 years this meant that I could add some of my favourite ingredients to the mix.
First up is Haith’s CLO, for those that don’t know, this is an amazing ingredient and used in the right quantities can really enhance a boilie. When you try the bait you will soon see it running throughout it and the texture that only premium ingredients can provide.
Tiger nut is infamous now and it’s no surprise to see anglers using this as their first point of call, where allowed, these days. So the Tigers had to go in to the mix no matter what the number crunchers were telling me!
Milk proteins are something we use extensively in our ranges to provide the goodness that every carp deserves. It has always been important to me that our baits are nutritional and contain the feeding triggers that catch big carp.
We have also created a new awesome flavour that is very subtle but makes the boilie smell amazing and compliments the feeding stimulants and premium attractors that go into this fully loaded mix.
So the Fully Loaded boilie was born and boy did we have some fun testing it, adjusting the ingredients to balance out the textures and ensuring the finished article was coming out just as I imagined it.
The pandemic meant that our team had an even longer period than normal to try out the new bait and the results the team have been achieving up and down the country have been outstanding, including that UK 60lb’er.
I suppose that’s why this release has become so anticipated, time is a commodity that is normally in scarce supply but with the current circumstances in the world, we have been afforded that luxury to get things just right much like the release of the Nutcracker.
Creating a new boilie is a challenging task, I have always tried to create a bait that has plenty of instant attraction but will survive a good soaking for that essential washed-out look that the wary carp will slip up with.
The Fully Loaded achieves this and more in my opinion. As for the name, well when we initially created this premium mix we certainly couldn’t deny that it is truly Fully Loaded.
