A buoyant pop-up is a must these days. However, you want them to be attractive too. I recently got a few flavours of the Power Lifters range and, being a little bit of a pop-up fanatic, I decided to give them a go.

I chose the Aniseed Dream, which reminds me of the Bunspice pop-ups I used to use years ago. It’s a real classic carp-catching flavour. The spicy flavour is pretty versatile and I could fish them over a bed of nut-based boilies or even fishmeal.

The buoyancy is unbelievable. They literally stay popped up until you are ready to change baits. They are available in 12mm only but they are so buoyant they will balance perfectly with an 18mm bait.
