      I had the same problem with these moulds and now have the solution. You need to make your g/bait/pellet mix a little wetter than usual and they work a treat.

          Same problem! Do you mean you soak the pellets longer Simon? Surely the feeders are ok in a Guru mould Connor!?

            I personally use my hands, find it quicker and end up lashing the mould after a short while.

                I just add a bit more water than normal. Sometimes during the day the problem reoccurs so I just add a bit more water and mix it in.

                    The trouble I have with the drennan is the feeder always clips the edge of the mould once I've got the groundbait on and I try and remove the feeder from the mould. Has anyone else had the same trouble? I may try and modify the mould a bit,see if I can remedy it.

                      when using the Drennan method moulds,lift the finished moulded feeder out on the mould by the tail rubber.
                      if you have trouble with groundbaits,pellets,or both together sticking to the inside of the moulds.take an oily soft hooker pellet,crush in inside the mould and rub the inside of the mould with it.the oil will help prevent sticking

                        Paul, the problem is the feeder is to tight a fit for the mould,shave 2mm off round the edge of the feeder with a small grinder problem solved.you will find you have to do all your feeders.

                              The best tip i saw at White Acres was.......

                              With all Method Molds one angler loosely ties a small plastic bag around the mold, keeping the knott at the back of the mold - totally covering the mold.
                              Fill the mold as normal....... dry mix / wet mix, pellets etc it does not matter all turn out perfect.
                              I think its down to the bag that allows the surface of the mold to move - on a really sticky mix (long chuck or deep swims) i just pull the knot at the back which pops the mix out!!!

                              I use a bag over all my molds now, great for the above reasons, also stops the mix going in the back of the Preston type molds.

                              I know we should not have to do it......... but it deffo works..... GIVE IT A GO!!!
