I’ve used many PVA funnel systems in the past but the ESP mesh is my favourite for many reasons. This mesh is great for making PVA bags and sticks, big or small. Its the perfect mesh for bagging up boilies, pellets, maggots and moist stick mixes.
There are many factors when it comes to using a certain PVA mesh such as reliability, price and the length of the mesh. The ESP mesh is very reliable PVA unlike others on the market such as PVA mesh from Fox and Korda that can tear and fray on occasions. I would say that the ESP mesh has a tighter weave too quick keeps all the bait compact and prevents it from escaping.
I would say one of the main factors I personally use ESP mesh is the price, I found that others on the market were just way to expensive. The initial PVA mesh kit is just under £8 which comes with a refill, plunger kit and a sealable tube(never had any issues with water getting in). You can buy the refills separately which are also very cheap and also very compact so you can keep a few back ups if your going for a longer session.
The ESP mesh comes in 3 sizes 32mm, 25mm and 20mm. I personally use the 25mm mesh as I find its a great allrounder and versatile diameter. I find that small coin sized PVA bags are the most effective and the ESP mesh at 25mm really is ideal.
In conclusion the mesh from ESP is a great allrounder, reliable and great value for money. I been fishing for over 16 years and I have tried many other PVA’s but ESP mesh is the one I have in my tackle bag.
You can find PVA mesh in your local tackle shop or simply from amazon.
