For a couple of varying reasons I’ve found myself using a fair bit of PVA mesh recently, having gone away from it for a while after initially being a huge fan.

I remember shooting features with the likes of Steve Spurgeon and Nick Helleur way back when PVA mesh first came to prominence. It represented a quantum leap in bait presentation and remains hugely effective all these years later.

The Korda version, in its three diameters – Original, Boilie and Long Chuck – has become a firm favourite and, honestly, I cannot fault it. I’ve had no laddering problems, which sadly cannot be said about some other brands – this is both annoying and makes its use expensive if you have to keep chucking lengths of it away.

It has been very easy to use and melts consistently – what more can you ask of a PVA?

“I’ve used it for years without any complaint.”
