Not sure if its been mentioned before but my curiosity still remains.

Gulp pack vs tub.

Which is cheaper and what's the difference.

I've assumed the tubs to be cheaper per piece, but a quick check has proved this not to be the case. I suppose you're getting heaps of Gulp juice with the tubs. It must be liquid gold, the leatherjackets seem to think so anyway!

My personal gripe was that I can't get my preferred shape (jigging grub) in tubs.

By memory I think there are 17 jerk shads in a tub, the tubs are convenient and I tend to have a whole range of different SB in a tub...

I scored 30 tubs of Nuclear chicken 3" Gulp minnow grubs which had 30 baits per tub cost $4.50USD, but that avenue has been shut closed on overseas orders now ... |(

Once you buy a pack of SBs - can't you just stick it in the tub with the other assorted SBs? there is no special fragrance, taste, per SB is there?

I love the grubs and i love the Nuc Chook colour...but only in jerkshad. For some reason i am yet to catch a snapper on the Nuc chook Grub. But it sounds like you got a good buy :)

Think there is only 15 jerk shad 5 inch in a gulp tub now... at least that's my count. The tub now seems to be a new shape also..... smaller too so not sure it that equates to less juice. Thenormal price i can find is $29.99 a tub and $12.95 a pouch. Rebel sports often has sales though as does the warehouse. Lucky to stock up on some tubs recently as Napier hunting and fishing did a fathers day special vouchers $15 for $30 value.

As long as they're the same brand. Zmans react to gulp juice and melt.

That's what I usually do and to be honest don't think the fish would mind

Last two years, my used zman have been put into container with gulp juice without a problem :y: . It appears it is only if you mix Gulp and zman or others together you end up with one big mess ;( .
Keep Elaztech separate.
