Top Tip: When preparing Xpand Pellets pump the pellets to make them sink, take the water straight off and place in a small tub, cover the pellets in Bait-Tech Liquid Pellet oil and allow them to expand and place in the fridge, the result is a pellet that has kept a far superior form to those soaked in water and at no point in the day will you suffer with pellets splitting as they break down in water.
