CRIT­I­CALLY-BAL­ANCED TIGER NUTS

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

WHILE stan­dard hair-rigged tiger nuts will work, us­ing them crit­i­cally-bal­anced is bet­ter as it makes the hook­bait be­have more nat­u­rally and im­i­tate any tigers that have been loosefed.

To make the rig, add a tiger nut to the hair, then use a nut drill to re­move half the cen­tre core of a sec­ond tiger.

Push a cork plug into the cav­ity and trim it flush with the out­side of the nut. Thread this sec­ond bal­anced nut on to the hair and at­tach a rig stop. This sec­ond nut acts like a pop-up on a nor­mal Snow­man rig, and sits above the bot­tom nut.

The re­sult­ing hook­bait has a neu­tral buoy­ancy to coun­ter­act the weight of the hook.
