      pellet feeders

      the pellet feeders mint mate dust your pellets in groundbait and there amazing it helps if you have a 3-4 inch hooklenth. i have tryed them on the river and put groundbait in the pellet feeders and thats good aslong as its only a slow river.

          I doubt there crap as they have been designed by steve ringer and alex bones, i think i would trust them more than you. i have had over 200lb using the method feeders, not had chance to use the pellet feeders yet but they are going to be just as good. you can tell from the quality and the little things that make a difference.

            i used the guru ones didint really take to them mate i thought they was to heavy for the size of them and lost alot of fish as well so i brought the shotgun elasticated feeders fished a match the week later and won with 93lb, i felt that cause the shotgun was pushin the bait out around the hookbait was better than normal pellet feeders i looked at the video on you chube and was impressed and first time out had that result with them like we can all say it cud be on the day but i felt more positive usin the shotgun ones than the guru and i didnt like the thought of payin 3.50 for a feeder but each to there own

              In my experience i have found the pellets to get trapped in the shotgun feeders, thus pellets not being realised. They're rubbish. You shouldn't be put off buy the Guru ones just because they are more expensive, they are a superior product in my opinion. Each to there own.

                The crap remark may be nearer the truth, my mate Alan dove bought some leads, method feeders and snap swivels, the snap swivels he couldn't open up, the method feeders the vanes kept breaking and the hook kept tangling, I beleive he said there is an anti tangle bit of tubing that is supposed to stop this but it flies off on the cast, with the leads the plastic which holds the leads kept coming adrift, he phoned up guru to register his displeasure apparantly they have had problems with the early leads and altered the fixing to the swivel, the method feeders they didn't or don't believe there is a problem, despite Alans insistance that the vanes snap when they hit the water, and as for the swivels he was advisied to grow longer fingermails so that he can open them up easier, after losing around 6 method feeders due to breakages they thanked him for his comments and sent him one method feeder and a packet of swivels as compensation. Alan wasn't impresed and won't be buying any more gear from guru.

                    hmm yet to try them out. the comment by themanbehindthemask about the middy shotgun feeders not releasing properly is cos you haven't soaked the pellets for the right amount of time - it takes a bit of experimenting to get it right but once you do they are fantastic

                      Mmm cant really comment on the guru feeders but i use the middy shotgun feeders and preston elasticated method feeders and find them ok apart from the leads on the shotgun feeders have a tendancy to come off after a while and they arnt very durable but they do get results for me used with scolded and groundbait dusted 4mm pellets.

                            Having tried out both.

                            IMO I'd say that the Guru ones are a better build quality. the small version have a lovely weight to them and look like they could take some stick.

                            Where as the Middy ones IMO are a better principle. But flimsy made and too light even fully loaded.

                            I've been having a play with adding a little extra weight to the Middy ones, just so that when tightening the tip down to them they don't get pulled out of position as easy.

                            crude but very effect though they may be
                            I'd like to see Middy do an updated version with a little extra weight and possibly a bit more thought put in to them, instead of just an old flimsy block ended feeder hacked to bits with a spring and a couple of dollops of glue added to hold it all together.

                            just my tuppence worth.



                            Both have a place in my box at the moment.

                            Don't knock either till you've tried them

                              i have been using the guru pellet feeders for the last month and had some excellent catches .thats not to say i wouldnt have done the same using my normal feeders .one problem i have had was just this week i was rebaiting my pellet feeder when i noticed that the black shock absober elastic was breaking down and needed replacing .considering the price it shouldnt be doing that so soon after buying .also there was no replacement elastic unlike other feeders you can buy.i am now in the process of replacing the other elastics in my guru feeders. coupling this up with the other problems mentioned on this site by fellow users ,i cant see me buying anymore much as i respect steve ringer.
