Marukyu is taking a little while to forge a reputation with often fickle carp anglers (it’s already hugely popular on the match scene), but trust me when I say that this stuff is absolute top quality.
I have used half a dozen products from the Japanese company thus far, and the krill stands out a mile. So much so that it now goes into 90 per cent of all my stick or bag mixes. I use the SFA 450 liquid krill and the SFA 400 powdered krill in combination, as well as individually in other mixes.
There are a lot of krill-based groundbaits and liquid out there, but quite often it can be bulked out with cheaper ingredients. This stuff is 100 per cent high-quality krill and the results when I’ve used it – no blanks so far when adding it to my mixes – have been phenomenal.
