so does bread. hell of a lot cheaper too...

Haha! Mainline at it again! Selling product like only they can!   Cell, so named due to the inclusion of one ingredient, which is probably the most recent "revolutionary" ingredient in today's bait

The effectiveness of cell is that..... Everyone was on it. I think it was Leggs who said if the majority of freebies going in was slug,then slugs would be the going bait. And I agree.

Cell, so named due to the inclusion of one ingredient, which is probably the most recent "revolutionary" ingredient in today's bait making, by virtue of that fact that it is the only ingredient currently used that hasn't been used since the 80s. However there are a lot of baits available that include it, just without the TM, or the price tag, or the TV coverage!

 

All quality baits catch fish if used correctly in the right location etc, just some are better at catching anglers.

I stand to be corrected but are 2 of the ingredients not Copra meal and Brocacell?

As adam says plenty of baits out there that are every bit as good, if not better than The Cell or essential Cell, either with or with out the "secret ingredient" and for well over half the price.

 

The main water I fish, as rough estimates I would say 50% of anglers use The Cell and the other half use baits from various company's or home rolled.

The Cell accounts for around 50% of the fish caught,  but with the amount of bait the lake sees you could argue if The Cell was this wonder bait it should account for more?

It just seems more fish are caught on it than any other bait because a hell of a lot more anglers are using it than any other bait.

That about sums it up.

There you go then!

 

If it is a superior bait on your water then as you say, surprising it doesn't account for a higher percentage. But you also have to take into account the skill of the anglers. Maybe those using Cell are better anglers than those not, so it actually performs poorly. Of course it could be the other way around. :D

Bearing in mind it has only been released to the general angler for 2 weeks...

 

So how come every angler is on it?

 

I somehow think a lot of it is hype, anglers have been convinced they need to change baits asap!

 

Essential Opal was a fruit based bait, and Cell was a coconut enzyme bait, mix the two together and you have a new bait, with a new hype making it the latest must have.

 

Of course if every angler who was previously on Cell changes to Essential Cell then as long as the new bait is put in front of fish it will catch, especially if used on hungry overstocked waters, as many lakes are :wink:

 

 

 

Hello every one has anyone used the Essential Cell yet it's smashing the waters here what have you catched and what do you guys think ?

My mate has just had two today on his first outing on it. It smells nothing & tastes nothing like the original cell (to me anyway). But will resist trying just yet for me

 Copra meal and Brocacell

 

Brocacel or its other name is Nutri-Cell  :wink: , Copra Meal apparently is a coconut smelling meal used in the horse feed industry, you can make your own minds up on the rest.

 

Very inventive those 3 guys in lab coats plastered across every mag you open  :twisted:  :lol:

i think when any new bait thats made with good ingrediants is introduced to a lake it does well. its something the fish havent seen before so imo are not as wary. all of my best sessions have happened this way. i dont go near a bait i know most other anglers are using for this reason.

Mainline are the attractor bait specialists these days (kev knight does the bulk of there dev I believe, not the 3 marketeers in white coats), they bring short term success but will you be able to buy essential cell in 36 months time I would guess not. 

 

would you want to be buying essential cell in 36 months when everyone else has moved on to the latest must have bait. :lol:

Pineapple and bread don't stay on the hook for 12h and u can't catch fish with a hook with no bait ☺

Beg to differ, my missus' dad had a roach while checking to see if his float was weighted properly.

 

Also there are plenty of baits out there which will catch fish. Essential cell is a blend of two boilies which produced fish. But you never have to pre bait due to the volumes going in everywhere because it's the latest bandwagon bait.

 

To be fair I am on ccmoore tuna and also the odyssey as I get it cheaper than normal. And I rate it highly. Odyssey is a long standing bait. Tuna just seems to be packed with Carpy goodness. However the satisfaction I've had catching carp on m homemade pop-ups is unrivalled. And when I made some normal boilies and hauled on them on a recent holiday it was a great buzz. Don't have the time and resources to make it in bulk though.

 

And tbf if I got free bait I'd take it unless it was utter crap!

Also I have all my bait give to me as my mate buys bulk all I pay is £17 delivery so why not use it

Beg to differ about catching on a bare hook, I have caught a fish on a Drennan Sweetcorn hook in a size 12, plain hook.

Also a carp tactic when using large beds of particles was to fish a bare hook over beds of hemp, and I know of a couple of anglers who caught doing that!

 

£17 delivery?

Is the carrier travelling in a gold plated lorry?

Or does he put the bait on a golden sack barrow as he delivers it to your door?

 

That is nearly 3 times what I pay for carriage to get 10kilo of bait delivered to me from my bait supplier!

 

 

As for the ingredient list for Essential Cell:

Cooked Cereals

Milk

Proteins

Soya proteins

Maize

Rape seeds

Wheat

Pulses

Bird foods

Amino acids

Vitamins and Minerals

Egg

EEC permitted flavourings

Antioxidants

Colouring and Sweeteners

It is identical to Cell!

In other words I think that basically it is Cell with the Essential Opal flavour.

 

I am absolutely positive that there are other baits that will produce fish, as Greekski says, he uses CCMoore, I have used Nutrabaits Trigga and, and am using various Solar baits and caught plenty of fish, and other people use other baits, and I'm certain they catch, I am even positive that Crafty Catcher and Nash baits will produce fish. I sell too many for them to be blanking on them. Even more so, I reckon I sell more Crafty than I do Mainline!

 

Mainline catches many fish on hype, not necessarily on better baits than other baits around, but by free advertising and the people who believe it. Equally many using Mainline don't catch!

 

Myself?

I would rather blank on a free bait than use any Mainline bait :o:wink:

Pineapple will stay on your hook for at least an hour tho and tbf i would NEVER think of leaving my hook for twelve hours without checking it.

you leave your hook for as long as you think the bait will last and that could be as little as 30min.

a known carper once said that if you have not had a twitch in 30 min check your bait and cast a short distance away then rinse and repeat, that way you cover all of your swim with three rods.

you could have two rods ten feet apart and still be five feet away from the patrol route and that would be enough for a potential blank and with the natural esters in the pineapple?? well that will do for me but as has been said, i would rather blank on a free bait than a £11.50 per kilo bud, go for it :)
