Why are bolies round?

Discussion in 'Carp Discussions' started by atrkyhntr, Jul 27, 2004.

  1. I don't see the need for round bolies but I am going to now find out why[​IMG]

    It seems if I use a sausage maker and simply cut the links off at 1" or smaller sections they would work fine... NO?

    Boilies are only round for 1 reason:

    Aerodynamics on long casts.

    Carp don't care if they are round, square, triangle, pyramid, spaghetti strands :D

    Rolling them just keeps them even size for those of us who are "junkies" :D LOL.

    I'm sure everyone has their reasons, but Aerodynamics are a big thing in Europe. I know of a guy that rolls out the sausages, and cuts them off and uses the "bars" to fish with. Work just fine.
