FNF de­scribe this new 15mm fritz/che­nille as a com­bi­na­tion of fine jelly fi­bres and a candy floss-like com­pound bonded to a su­per fine core. When the ma­te­rial be­comes wet all these fi­bres fuse to­gether and move and pul­sate as one, cre­at­ing an ir­re­sistible, slushy, jelly-type morsel. It is also very soft so ini­tially the fish will hardly feel it. Pri­mar­ily of in­ter­est to still­wa­ter fish­ers, it is use­ful for a range of Blobs, FABs and lures. It is fairly easy to work with although you do need to be mind­ful of brush­ing and sweep­ing the fi­bres back af­ter each turn around the hook shank. The range of colours is ex­ten­sive and I have no­ticed that they do be­come stronger and more vi­brant when wet. From what I can see so far, the colour holds re­ally well with no leech­ing when wet. The colours are bis­cuit, atomic yel­low, blue cheese, apri­cot, com­pe­ti­tion pink, egg white, fire pink, magma, hulk, hot coral, leech black, marsh­mal­low pink, pale olive, pel­let, safety orange, shock­ing pink, blush­ing sun­burst, zest and prawn. A pack of all 19 colours is £56. You get around two me­tres per pack.
