Due to the digestibility/solubility of the boilies we produce, you can not use a standard freezer bait taken straight from the bag and mount it onto the hair for any length of time without it going soft. With this in mind we have produced a hardened hookbait that is identical to the bait but will stay on the hair and remain firm for up to three days. Hardened hookbaits are available in 14mm, 16mm and18mm.
