Available in Black or White, Large, Midi or Mini. The classic black Spomb was first launched in February 2010. A few months later, due to demand from countries with extremely hot and sunny weather, the white Spomb was produced. This is the same size, design and quality as the original product, but does not feel warm to the touch in hot conditions. Advantages of using the Spomb as a baiting tool include:
Awesome distance. The aerodynamics of the Spomb are of a teardrop shape. This is certainly the ultimate product for flight through the air with the minimum resistance. Furthest measured cast distance is 190 yards (173 metres)!
Instant bait delivery. When the Spomb contacts the water the body is released fully open so washing the bait out instantly.
Fast aquaplane retrieve. The Spomb floats once opened and glides effortlessly across the top of the water with no spinning or line twist even in the strongest of winds. Other Spods have too much resistance on retrieve.
No bait loss. Once the Spomb is loaded, because the container is closed shut, no bait will come out until it impacts with the water and opens. Spods with an open end or with holes lets the bait fall out.
Any bait. Anything that fits in the Spomb can be cast out including:- pellets, boilies, hemp, corn, mixer, bread, meat, maggot, worms and particles etc. No need to mix All baits can just be loaded into the Spomb without any need to mix. If you wish to mix balls of ground bait though, these can be cast accurately to a given distance even at a very long range.
Good wind accuracy. Wind has very little effect on its flight because of the aerodynamics. Even with a strong cross wind, its accuracy and distance is remarkable.
The Mini Spomb: The eagerly awaited new mini Spombs, in black and white, are available from February 2012. They have the same quality, advantages and features as the Spomb and can be used on any rod. Minimum disturbance, so great for topping up your baited area. Due to the smaller diameter and length, the mini Spomb complies with various fishing competition rules, worldwide, where baiting products cannot exceed 50mm in diameter or are restricted by length.
For all Spombs it is recommended they are stored in banded position. For extreme weather conditions, strong wind and rain into your face, you can turn the front button 180° for stronger latch.
How to use the Spomb: Fix to your line and use as a spod. Hold the Spomb with the logo on body facing upwards. Push the BUTTON, keep the Spomb open with thumb as shown. Do not fill the button section. Fill with bait and close together firmly at nose end. Do not squash bait. On hitting clip let it drop into water. The Spomb will open releasing and spreading bait instantly. Retrieve. Bait has already washed out. When reeling in Spomb, a steady retrieve will produce what seems an amazing flight across the top of the water as it aquaplanes back across the surface.
