I use glycerin, karo syrup, hemp oil, or any other flavored glug and coat the entire pva stick. I am not a fan of the rapid break down. pva bags, also not a big fan. Yea they catch fish and work but I am very picky and don't like the break down of the bag.
when nash came out with there micro mesh, it was advertised as a prolonged break down. I did testing and it dissolved fast. Did it in different water temps as well. was told they were looking into another pva mesh. But so far nothing came about.
I will only use mesh when I am boilie fishing. I like to grind them up and add it to my mix. when I fish particles, pop ups, south african floaties, puffs, I go straight to my method feeder or just mold my method and or packbait around an inline lead. Its more rapid for me as well.
