    hi mate,yes you can certainly fish a hair rig on the waggler,have you tried using korum quickstops? they make it very easy for fishing pellet,corn,meat etc. or you can just use a traditional hair rig with a bait stop.

      can you be more precise mate as to the reasons that you are struggling cos there are loads of lads on here to help you .and if you can go with some one preferbaly a match angler "no disrespect to pleasure anglers intended " you will catch now on the pellet waggler as the water warms up ,no need for fancy shotting patterns here just keep feeding little and often and the fish will respond

          I would definatley use the korum quickstops as there is no messing about with bait stops,I use em and they are brilliant. Have a look at em and see what you think.YouTube - Tackleuk Preston Innovations Quickstops

            I much prefer a band on a hair, cheaper, easier to use, more versatile and won't get snapped off in landing nets like quickstops can. Either put a pellet in the band or pull the band through meat or corn. You do need to have good quality bands for this, not too thin and stretchy like the Gardner 3.2mm ones.

                  have to agree with nathan there. band is the best way... if you have a quickstop you have to muck around changing hooklengths when you wanna fish a hard pellet!

                        If you find the bait band too fiddly, and the baitstops, you might want to try spaghetti as a stop either outside or inside the pellet, if u are using drilled pellets. Nathan is right about the bands not catching in your landing net, its the same with the spaghetti, and you get stacks in a packet !!

                          i'd find spaghetti more fiddly than both other options?

                          whats easier than grabbing a band with a baiting needle and pulling through.

                          or

                          shoving a needle through some bait?

                            Absolutely nothing, its just another option for consideration, and you dont have to tie the band or quicktop on in the first place.

                              I use spaghetti for large pieces of meat, keeps it on better and looks natural, goes soft in water.
