What are the best size poly-balls in the fox range do I need to get to pop-up my dead bait ( sardine, mackeral tails) I find these baits are heavier than most, I've tried the fox balsa sticks but find when inserting into either bait the bait busts down the flanks, and also don't find the sticks useful for eel or lamprey sections, also what size beads do I need to butt up against the poly ball so I can crimp the balls in place on the pop-up link, are the stems worth trying also. (fox Poly-Balls & Stems)....

I find with the balsa sticks bust the bait when I insert them, especially when frozen, I do try and make a cavity to push the sticks in but have still encountered the same problem,
