How To Load The PVA Mesh Refill onto the Tube

2. REMOVE THE PVA MESH REFILL FROM THE GRIP SEAL BAG & PICK UP THE NON ELASTICATED END WHICH WILL BE ON THE OUTER SIDE OF THE REFILL

3. PLACE THE NON ELASTICATED END OF THE PVA MESH REFILL ONTO THE TOP OF THE TUBE AND SHUFFLE THE PVA MESH ONTO THE TUBE WITH THE COLOURED ELASTICATED KNITTED TOP BAND GOING ON LAST

4. NOW REPLACE THE ELASTIC BAND ABOVE THE COLOURED KNITTED TOP BAND WHICH ACTS AS EXTRA HOLDING SECURITY

5.THE NON ELASTICATED END CAN NOW BE KNOTTED READY TO TAKE THE BAIT AND YOUR PVA MESH TUBE IS NOW READY TO USE 
 

BEST PRACTICES FOR MAKING MESH BALLS

How you use our PVA Mesh is completely up to you and your skill as an angler but to get the most balls out of our PVA Mesh (per metre) we tie them as explained below:

  1. HOLD MESH AND TUBE FIRMLY IN ONE HAND
     
  2. FILL THE TUBE FROM THE ELASTICATED TOP END TO LEVEL REQUIRED
     
  3. LET THE BAIT AND MESH COME DOWN CONTROLING IT WITH YOUR HAND AND A NICE BALL WILL FORM
     
  4. NOW COMPRESS THE BAIT WITH YOUR HAND (by resting the bottom of the ball on your leg and pushing down on the top of the ball with your hand works well you do not need a plunger, although if preferred, one can be used) THEN TWIST THE MESH A LITTLE
     
  5. ONCE TWISTED , THE BAIT WILL NOT NOW FALL BACK DOWN THE TUBE AND YOU CAN NOW TURN EVERYTHING UP SIDE DOWN HOLDING THE TUBE AND MESH BETWEEN YOUR LEGS (this leaves both hands free and locks the mesh on the tube)
     
  6. NOW FIRM THE BALL MORE BY TWISTING THE PVA MESH & ONCE TIGHT ENOUGH, USE PVA TAPE TO TIE OFF THE BALL (This is very easily done!) IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO USE PVA TAPE TO TIE OFF YOUR BALL, SIMPLY TIE A KNOT AND SLIDE THE KNOT BACK TO MAKE A TIGHT BALL, THEN YOU CAN FORM ANOTHER KNOT AND CUT INBETWEEN THE TWO KNOTS SO THE PVA MESH TUBE IS READY FOR THE NEXT BAIT BALL. 
     
  7. THE BALL IS NOW MADE
