I don't want to start a Korda hate thread, so please dont flame this topic.

Has anybody used this product yet? As usual korda talk the talk and it's being flying off the shelves, but is it as good as they say?

I don't intend to use it, but I'm just curious about this product. I know most products are a sales ploy, but this just seems a bit different to the usual stuff you see on the market.

And in true Korda style the price tag isn't cheap in the slightest.

Ross :)

Havnt got sky so havnt watched thinking tackle in ages.

I've seen glug in a spray bottle, but a squeeze bottle is also good. Dosnt a flow appear around the bait allegedly too?

I intend to get some for my next trip out , if it works happy days if not another few quid down the drain . Fact is all of the best/popular baits and additives started somewhere . i like the fact it's easy to apply just before the cast , we shall see.

Definitely John, something simple but could be very affective. And a lot less messier.

I can't imagine alot of the glug would stay on the hookbait once it has entered the water at high speed!
It's like that and that's the way it is!

From what I gather, Korda are just helping with the marketing. It's not their product!

So the reason that people think it's a new idea is because, love them, hate them or treat them as just another brand; Korda have the best marketing strategies in the business.

There is also a bait company in Wrexham that may have been using this sort of thing in their baits before Vision's ectoplam and the goo came around.
I can't remember their name, heard about them in the tackle shop on Friday.

having a squeeze bottle for your glug is nothing new but the trail of scent this stuff leaves is like the halo bait ive seen advertised not used either but will be interested in any results that are posted :wink:

A lot of these are made on a different basis to this goo.

Things like ectoplasm, very simple to make and something most bait companies know how to produce and all understand that it is just a gimmick.

That said I am not convinced by this goo, the pure fact that the statement in carp talk started, every year we see things like this made to catch the angler, but this is different. Oldest marketing tool in the book tell everyone what they would think then prove how this differs, 4 carp cups for south Africa blah blah.

Invitation to view demonstration, conducted at Drayton. From the photo I saw it was tested in the known hot swims and also looked like that person was the only person fishing the boards. How could you fail and of course you would do better that most around you, most space on the best area of the lake which is the best area even when it's rammed.

This being said, it offers something visual. It also has stimulants and palatents added, so will have some worth. But didn't we have red venom years back which was very very similar?

You get this effect from some white pop ups and wafters, which I believe is from the white fluro powder dye and titanium dioxide mixing with the water creating a haze, could explain why white produces quite well on most waters.

I am sure the answers behind this product are very simple, as with most baits and for me the only test for this product is time.

Great points there Coops...Testing at drayton? You can catch on most stuff there, not really a great selling point haha.

Completely agree with your points, and forgive me if I'm wrong but I believe you have a lot to do with bait making so you probably no the ins and outs with this product (as well as other people on this forum)

Cheers for your feedback

to me its another coy thats gonna catch alot of anglers and not many fish, its only gonna get worse aswell lads :?

people will never learn, a big fat wriggling lob worm is cheaper and alot more inviting to a carp on a heavily pressured water when its been tiping it down with rain like today :lol:

As no one above seems to have actually used the product yet ill have a bash. I bought some a few days after the product was released. Ive been using it on my PVA bags on every cast and haven't caught a fish yet. Ive had a lot more knocks and line bites which im putting down to smaller fish getting attracted into the swim but thats about it.
